Chris Taylor is fearless musical and artistic performer from San Antonio, TX. Whether he is solo, with an acoustic guitar and harmonica or with his band (Chris Taylor & The Setting Sons) you can expect a passionate musical experience. “Here's a guy with a voice reminiscent of Jeff Buckley's falsetto, meets the grit of Bob Dylan, whose musical approach should appeal to you if you hate bubblegum and want something with more substance!” Mike Rimmer - CrossRhythms UK
He has cowritten two songs with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics fame and has over 30 albums to his credit. His new album, Down A Dead End Street, released in October 2017, is a tribute album to one of his musical heroes, Bob Dylan.
Throughout the 90’s, Taylor was the primary writer and visionary for the band Love Coma, which included Matt Slocum (guitar player for Sixpence None The Richer) and they developed quite a cult following across the US. With both his music and visual artwork, Taylor has remained prolific and prominent in releasing new work for his fans.
Chris Taylor is a solo artist in every sense of the word. No two Chris Taylor shows have been the same. Whether acoustic or electric, the performances are thrilling. Chris Taylor paints and sings at the same time, creating something unique right in front of you. The Setting Sons provide the muscle, the psychedelia and the rock and roll rhythm to it all.

“Chris Taylor is tremendously talented, both in musical and visual artistry. Chris can do it all: paint a portrait of your favorite pet, live painting at events, sing and play live, take your poem or lyric and create a song for you. He can paint with urban flare or traditional strokes. Check out his website to see his paintings, request a new one, or buy an album from his beautiful and extensive catalogue.”
“Never Ending Now, by Chris Taylor, is a must-have album for music lovers of all kinds. Chris is a talented and prolific artist, and this album is proof that Chris approaches recording music in the same way he approaches the painter’s canvas. From the opening acoustic guitar strums of “Electric Mind” to the gritty ending electric chords of the freeing song, “Let Yourself Move On,” this album takes the listener on a two hour musical journey. ”

“As a songwriter, I often struggle with writing because I hear other people's songs coming out in my own work. But something about Chris Taylor's music opens the floodgates and after listening to him for a while, my own voice comes through in my songs. He's a muse!”
“Chris Taylor's newest album, 'Never Ending Now', is an album that refuses to be consumed by the superficial and the fake. It is an album that presents you with beauty in all of its raggedness, all of its humanness, but that ushers you into the hope and possibility of something greater and more lasting in its whisper of the Divine.”
— Kevin Bianchi (The Chestertons)
