Songwriters Hall of Fame 2016 inductee Chip Taylor has been writing and performing for nearly 60 years and shows no sign of slowing down. The New York Times says it best, “If you only know him as the as the guy who wrote ‘Wild Thing’ and ‘Angel of the Morning” — you don’t know him! Chip Taylor is making some of the most distinctive acoustic music around today.
Whiskey Salesman, Taylor's upcoming 2019 release is his 40th and he will debut it at Daryl’s House in Pawling, NY on April 17. As an added bonus everyone in attendance that night will receive a Free vinyl copy of Chips 16 Candles EP that besides Chip features John Prine, Guy Clark, and Carrie Rodriguez . Rhinebeck resident and long-time Van Morrison guitarist John Platania will accompany Chip.
"Chip Taylor could've rested on his laurels years ago and still been way ahead of everybody else today. Lucky for us he didn't and he's making some of the most relevant music out there," said Buddy Miller just last year. Since returning to music in 1996 he has enjoyed elder statesman stature within the Americana, contemporary folk and singer-songwriter scenes as an artist in his own right as well as in collaboration on albums and in performance with John Prine, Carrie Rodriguez, Kendel Carson and John Platania. In a remarkable and prolific run, Taylor has released nearly an album a year since his return, each rising high on the Americana chart. As England’s The Guardian notes, “Chip Taylor, like Johnny Cash, is well worth rediscovering by a new generation.”
The title track from his 2012 album, recently went viral on Spotify, garnering a million and a half streams in just a couple months streams over a couple of months and has recently been featured on Netflix “Sex Education.”
“If names like Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson and Townes Van Zandt mean anything to you, you should make a point of discovering
Chip Taylor,” urges critic Anthony DeCurtis. “Whether you know it or not, he’s earned his way into that exalted company.
