Back in late June, I was on the coast in Manzanita, performing mainly originals and some cover tunes at The Hoffman Center. Intimate and responsive crowd. Sold some CDs, too. I was joined on stage for Elton John’s, “Love Song,” by long time friend, Sher Ireland.
Been jamming all summer with the band, HomeBrew, at mostly private events like, auctions, to weddings, graduations and an upcoming 50 year high school reunion.
So yeah…things are groovin’!!
From first impressions to falling in love, new beginnings and peaceful endings, to being deeply moved by children with little to no future, to celebrating a life lived and lives filled with adventure and family secrets, to finding hope among the ruins of an earthquake, “In Those Days” by Chris Taylor captures the many sides of life both exhilarating, tragic and yet, still hopeful.
The 8 vocal songs on this new album due out in 2012, feature music genres from adult contemporary, country/rock, folk/pop, gospel and inspirational. Under the masterful guidance and talent of producer/engineer/musician and arranger Bart Hafeman, “In Those Days” is deeply personal and honest.
Be looking for it in 2012. Listen to song samples here.
