“Alex Taylor is a genius with a loop pedal… and his voice is stunning”  Metro

Bristol based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumental loop pedal artist. Already compared by reviewers to the likes of Bill WithersJohn Martyn and Jeff Buckley, Alex Taylor is one of the shining lights of the acoustic scene and a troubadour of world-class standing.

When you see him perform live, prepare yourself for an energetic and passionate vocal performance, dextrous and original acoustic playing and some dynamic loop pedal trickery for good measure.

Drawing on varied influences from a wide musical spectrum, Alex’s unique style splices elements of soul, nu-folk and electronica to place his powerful-yet gentle, shape‐shifting voice firmly in the spotlight.

A festival favourite, Alex recently headlined the BBC Stage at Bristol Harbour Festival, and has played many other stages including Cambridge Folk Festival and Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

Touring extensively, Alex has notched hundreds of gigs with previous support slots including Jack SavorettiRoachford and Michael Kiwanuka.

His critically acclaimed debut album features performances from members of The InvisibleNewton Faulkner’s bandPortishead and Massive Attack.

With more festivals and tour dates in the pipeline, and a brand new studio album set for release in the summer, 2018 is looking good for Alex Taylor.

Alex Taylor [Reviews]

“Sublime… Buckley-esque singer songwriter” 

 Time Out

“Echoes of Bill Withers’ jazzy folky soul” 

– Q Magazine

“The burnished baritone… who sounds like a calmer, more soulful Sting” 

– The Guardian ****

“Dynamic solo shows, using pedals and loops 

to create a wall of sound” 

 Maverick Magazine ****

“Taylor throws the kind of twistedly beautiful shapes on acoustic guitar that recall John Martyn, while his voice is a scratchy, committed thing that can walk across a falsetto tightrope with poise or howl like a wounded animal. An impressive introduction” 

– R2 Magazine 

“A singer songwriter with a compelling voice… Alex Taylor’s songs are finely crafted and topped off with interesting guitar arrangements, all of which adds up to a fine performer”

– Venue Magazine

Mojo Hand

10/06/2018
17:30 -19:30

Formed in October 2017, Mojo Hand is the sound of two professional guitarists playing the blues music that has been their first love since first learning it as teenagers. Jon Van Gowler (acoustic guitar & vocals) is a seasoned veteran of the London and South West blues scenes since the early 70s. Peter Webber (resonator guitar & vocals) has played with many luminaries of the acoustic blues scene. and has been described as “acoustic guitar virtuosity” (Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music ), “a killer slide guitarist who knows his way round the frets like most of us know our own front garden” (Spiral Earth), and “a rolling acoustic firestorm” (Acoustic Guitar Magazine).

The duo began as a busking project. Playing on the streets of Bath and Bristol became our practice sessions, and through it we learnt to build a dynamic set that could keep a transient audience engaged. We soon found ourselves drawing crowds and taking bookings for gigs from passers-by, and as our diary began to fill up, the prospect of dedicating ourselves full-time to serving and furthering the blues began to present itself.

After receiving many requests for a CD we decided to go into a studio and record an album of some of the highlights of our set. Recorded completely live in one morning, with no overdubs, this is a snapshot of our first few months as a duo and we hope you derive as much enjoyment from listening to it as we did from making it. Click to listen

Recording-wise, the next step will be an album of predominantly original material, to appear later in the year. Meanwhile we’re keeping up a busy schedule playing around the South West and hope to be bringing our brand of blues to a town near you soon.
