Event Details

Jeff Taylor

JEFF TAYLOR has already toured, collaborated, and recorded with indie-music’s brightest luminaries on both sides of the Atlantic. Now, he steps into the spotlight himself with a new record deal, and “The Living,” the second single from his forthcoming album.

Working on stage and in the studio with the likes of Sara Bareilles, Trixie Whitley, Mark Guiliana, Kishi Bashi, Esa-Pekka Salonen, and Donny McCaslin, Jeff Taylor’s unique talents and musical versatility have been celebrated since his early days of performing on New York City’s Lower East Side at Rockwood Music Hall.

Taylor gained further notice with the independent release of his first effort under the name Dumpster Hunter, 2012’s Frustration in Time Travel, produced by John Siket (Blonde Redhead, Phish, Dave Matthews Band) and Steve Wall (Lucius, Mark Guiliana, Gretchen Parlato). He followed with his 2014 EP Organelle, produced by Thomas Bartlett (St. Vincent, The National, Yoko Ono).

In 2018, Taylor co-fronted distinguished composer Marike van Dijk‘s The Stereography Project, performing in the United States and Europe and featuring arrangements of his songs for a 12-piece wind-and-string ensemble. The following year, Taylor toured the world with Donny McCaslin (from David Bowie’s Blackstar band), in support of McCaslin’s album, Blow, which Taylor co-wrote.

With his reputation growing as a star on the rise, Taylor has signed with Los Angeles-based record label Merrill Artists (ECR Music Group), and is releasing “The Living,” the second single from his debut full-length solo album. The album, A Deeper Kind, features drummer Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, St. Vincent) and Jesske Hume (Conor Oberst, Margaret Glaspy), and was produced by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr., Thurston Moore). Jeff Taylor’s “The Living” will be available on all platforms on July 16th, on Merrill Artists.
