Ben Taylor- Daytrotter Session

January 22, 2009

I don’t remember ever listening to Ben Taylor before but the tracks that he put down for his Daytrotter session are some of the best that I have heard in one of their sessions recently.  A really laidback style with a sublime voice and guitar playing that makes you think you were sitting curled up in an armchair with a glass of wine in his frontroom and he was singing just for you.

The first tune Turn On The Lights gives an immediate personal feel with his retelling of how the song was written about his soon to be born nephew and the third track Wicked Way has some hilarious lyrics which puts me in mind of Jerome from FOTC (with a much better voice!)  The last track is unique as well since it is actually a poem and not a tune at all so make sure you give that one a whirl.
