Riding That Train
Brooks Taylor hails from Richmond, Virginia, a hot bed for musical talent and influences. This is where it all started from the age of six with a professional boys and mens choir to his days and many band configurations in the 'Fan' at VCU playing The Pass, Hardtimes, Poor Richards, Matt's British Pub, Mark & Taylor, Piedmont Ramblers, etc., etc., doing the 'east coast thing' from Washington D.C. to Key West. He has performed widely in Los Angeles from late night 'Hell Holes' to the legendary Palomino Club, The Mint, The Alligator Lounge, Madame Wong's, Kulak's Woodshed, Cozy's, Ireland's 32. Brooks has shared the stage with LA's finest. This train ride will take you from the Piedmont to Muscle Shoals, Stax Volt, Mississippi Delta, Austin, and Bakersfield, California. Taylor's self-penned songs take you on a musical trip down the highways of Americana - one strong song after another with great production by Ed Tree @ The Treehouse never stepping on the core of the song. In this corner.....lending their talent.....Ed Tree (Spencer Davis, Bum Steers), Taras Prodaniuk (Dwight Yoakam, Lucinda Williams, Mojo Monkeys, Richard Thompson), Dale Daniel (Hacienda Bros.). Brooks is a proud ASCAP member with songs placed in both Television and Indies films. He also writes, records and tours with his longtime buddies 'The Skinwalkers', 'Rock n' Twang' at it's best.
