Latest news »Society of Sound: July
The Bowers & Wilkins Society of Sound release for July comes from singer-songwriter Ben Taylor.
Though born into a musical world (his parents are James Taylor and Carly Simon) it wasn't really in Taylor's mind to become a singer until he was into his twenties. His first album release Famous Among the Barns was released in 2003 but it took until Another Run Around the Sun , in 2005, for Taylor to feel he'd started to create something which represented his true musical nature.
" My music is a huge amalgamation of things and influence and styles, but it's very much made up of music that my parents made that I heard growing up, it's ingrained in me. I have a hard time separating between the two."
The Another Run… album was co-produced by Kevin Bacon and Bacon is again the producer for this month's B&W release Naked. A live performance in a stripped back format.
