Sean Taylor has rapidly grown to be one of the hottest new names in the UK 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, Chris Isaak and Tom Waits.

His latest album Love Against Death is a masterpiece. In Sean's words, "a direct challenge to a reality dominated by greed, inequality, and injustice. It's the choice we make at every moment, in every relationship, and by every action". Recorded in Austin, Texas and produced by Mark Hallman (Carole King, AniDi Franco, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lyle Lovett et al), it also features Eliza Gilkyson and Kim Deschamps.

Now touring with a drummer, Sean's live show is at its absolute best. A magnificent, atmospheric snapshot of Sean's insight into the world we live in. Beautiful and powerful songs, outstanding musicianship and a truly intimate, yet intense experience.

"Atmospheric... fabulous music..."- Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

"My main listen today... brilliant... stunning songs... GREAT ALBUM"- Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

"Sean Taylor is the king of singer songwriter styling... mesmerising"- Maverick
