Paul Taylor

Paul Taylor is an accomplished pianist and keyboard player specialising in improvisation. The music is evocative, alluring and unique; combining unusual harmonies and sonorities with an original and fluid technique.

He has performed in a solo capacity at the Sage Gateshead and provided accompaniment for silent films shown at Gateshead Old Town Hall as part of 2010’s Late Shows Festival, and also at the Star and Shadow cinema

He is also one third of acclaimed improv trio,The Long Lonesome Go, along with Christian Alderson and Jason Etherington. They performed at 2011’s TUSK Festival for experimental music.

An album, "Askance", was released in November 2013. paulstephentaylor.bandcamp.com

"A solo improviser of outstanding scope and originality": Paul Bream's Jazz Alert

"A welcome and unexpected selection of tracks which show Paul’s dynamic ability, and love for the piano."

"Gorgeous" : The Guardian: theguardian.com/culture/2014/s...ative-handiwork

"Paul Taylor is an accomplished pianist that creates an incredible intensity to his music, it’s emotional and yet unique. His piano improvisation As Granada has entranced ears on Fresh On the Net": freshonthenet.co.uk/2014/10/faves125

Ray Honeybourne's insightful elucidation of "Askance" and the following release "Cusps", complete with additional commentary by Paul:

A new album will be released later this year. As a prologue to this work, the mini-album "Cusps" was released on Bandcamp on 30th March 2015. It is available to purchase here: paulstephentaylor.bandcamp.com...com/album/cusps

"Just beautiful. He somehow manages to bottle moods: from sprightly joy to the plaintive and elegiac; from the mournful to the sudden dawning of unexpected glee – and every shifting subtle shade in between – his exemplary playing can really take you there." The Crack magazine, December 2015
