Pennsylvania-raised, Boston-based folksinger Nate Taylor writes about people, and the emotions and experiences that connect us. In August through November 2018 Taylor will complete his 4th annual There And Back Again house show tour, covering 10,000 miles from the Atlantic to the Pacific and bringing his songs back to those that inspired them.
Often compared to Nick Drake for his resonant fingerpicking, Taylor paints an ethereal soundscape with his soaring vocals that implores a kind of reverence for the moment. His songs wrestle with love, loss, and purpose in pursuit of the ideal that music can be a force for understanding in an ever more disparate world.
In November 2017, Taylor released “A Love Story | Live From America,” a collection of five live recordings from TABA 2017 featuring performances live from America’s living rooms. This year, Taylor looks forward to releasing “TABA 2018 LIVE” following his return to Boston in November. These live albums capture the foundation of Taylor’s music – a deep respect for the potency of relationship across time and distance. In TABA 2018, Taylor anticipates the bonds and stories that will inspire songs for years to come.
Kate Adams (Chicago) writes melancholy americana songs for the sadgirl in all of us. She is currently performing and recording new original music, and is releasing new music every two months starting Aug 3 as one half of ambient duo Mending along with composer/creator Joshua Dumas.
