Shawn Taylor performs original "wandering roots" songs and Americana interpretations on acoustic guitar, vocals, and harmonica, focusing on positive uplifting music with a grove and meaningful lyrics.
"With a thumping thumb, dancing fingers, wailing harp, deep, gritty, soul stirring vocals and poetic blue collar lyrics, Shawn Taylor performs songs with American roots; wandering roots. He's drawn comparisons from Tom Waites to Ray Lamontagne, Bruce Springsteen to Chris Smither, but his original songs are colored by the experiences of his own working class, wandering roots. He's been an oysterman, carpenter, hitchhiker, homeowner, family man, Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, and a performing musician and song writer, for more than 20 years. He's released four CDs of original songs, plays venues from New England to Nashville, and has shared the stage with musical heavyweights including Maria Muldau and Sarah Potenza.
