Album Notes
This is the fourth Independent release from Shawn Taylor (2017).
It features his original songs and wandering roots sound he's spent the last decade developing as a traveling solo-songster and band leader. He also covers songs by Pat Wictor and the iconic "For What It's Worth" by Stephan Stills.

“Shawn Taylor is one of the finest traveling troubadours performing on the circuit these days. Boasting world-class guitar chops, soul enriched vocals and an uncanny knack for capturing life in a song, Taylor never fails to wow audiences with his performing prowess. Touting a new album entitled, “Balance,” that is both personal and universal, Taylor is poised to up his stature on the national scene. We were lucky enough to catch him before his ascent to musical glory.”
Brian Owens – Metronome Magazine – Boston. (blurb before interview)

" Acoustic troubadour Shawn Taylor is no stranger to the pages of Metronome. In fact Shawn graced our cover in March of 2015 on the strength of his exceptional Home album. For his new offering Balance, Taylor returns with a collection of cleverly penned acoustic borne numbers that incorporate everything from Island to funk to pop and folk. He’s a gifted guitarist capable of delivering blazing single note runs or keeping things tight and tasteful with his superlative fingerpicking prowess.

Joined by musical friends guitarist Jim McKeeman, bassist Nicholas Defala, drummer Nick Longo, engineer/multi-instrumentalist Paul Oplach, upright bassist Patrick Haddon along with singers Lee-Ann Lovelace & Shannon McMahon Bruchal, Taylor whips up one of the finest sounding albums of 2018 with Balance. But don’t take my word for it, finnd a little Balance for yourself. You won’t be sorry. " - [B.M.O.] - Metronome Magazine Boston April, 2018. (review of Balance)
