LUCKY ROOM

by Rick Taylor

Not content to rest on his laurels, and on the heals of his critically acclaimed 2008 release “The Wonky Years”, and the moving finger style guitar work on his 2005 release “Clown River”, Rick Taylor has returned home; to the blues. This gritty solo collection of 11 songs is recorded in the spirit of the 20’s and 50’s blues masters. It covers the road from Mississippi to Chicago in a stirring tribute to the roots of the music that has driven pop music for decades. With a bourbon stained voice that sounds as if it could be coming through the torn radio speaker of a 1927 Buick, Lucky Room was recorded on vintage acoustic and electric guitars and amplifiers. Close your eyes and you will find yourself sitting at a table in a juke joint, somewhere along Highway 61.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Selected by The Great Lakes Blues Society to showcase at the 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee and long regarded as one of Canada’s finest blues and finger style guitarists, Rick Taylor brings a high level of energy to the stage and recording studio. A 40 year veteran of the guitar, Rick cut his teeth on early delta and Chicago blues and immersed himself in the genre. As a young musician Rick got the chance to see many of the early blues masters first hand and developed his own unique style and syncopated voicings on the guitar. He is often in demand as a studio musician and sideman and has two solo CD’s to his credit. His rich, expressive baritone voice, quirky and novel songwriting styles and unforgettable “guitarnastics" has made Rick a crowd favorite at festivals and clubs for many years.
