About Sean Taylor

Sean Taylor has grown to be one of the hottest new names in the Eurpoean blues/acoustic scene. His incredible passion for performance, sheer talent and songwriting of the highest calibre is a testament to his frequent comparisons with John Martyn, Neil Young and Tom Waits. Sean appeared at both Glastonbury and Cambridge festivals in 2010 and 2011. His 2011 Glastonbury performance on the Bourbon St Jazz & Blues stage was widely blogged as being a highlight of the festival. Apart from his 3 headline UK tours to date, Sean has also supported the Neville Brothers, John Fogerty (Creedence Clearwater), Band of Horses, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Dukes and Eric Bibb.
