Born to a cattle-ranching family in northern California, Willy Tea Taylor is said to be the next great songwriter of his generation. A sense of nostalgia and the preservation of the past is inherent in his songwriting, and his poetic lyricism reflects a strong connection to his rural roots, perfectly fueling the anti-ephemeral nature of traditional folk music.
Taylor draws his inspirations from the land and people he comes from -- cattleman of California -- and devotes his life to the documentation of classic American themes. He is currently touring with four of the six members of the Good Luck Thrift Store Outlet, an Americana band born out the song-writing competition the 52 Week Club.More »
