Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Virginia, Scott Taylor plays the true blues; stirred up in Motown hot sauce, simmered in funk and seasoned with southern soul.
The singer-songwriter has spent a life entrenched in music. After years spent with his youth choir, Taylor began his professional career backing headlining artists who toured the Northwest. He bounced around several notable blues labels as he honed his solo style.
Most recently Taylor has found a home at Fetal Records out of Annapolis where he is putting the finishing touches on his first album for the label, Blues Kitchen. The album is a collection of songs Taylor describes as “unfiltered and strait from the gut.” The bluesman has been laboriously tracking his new material, collaborating with blues guitar virtuoso Tony Fazio with Charlie Sayles playing harmonica on several tracks, while still finding time to play piano at Church on Sundays.
