Lewis Taylor

Neo-soul multi-instrumentalist Lewis Taylor began his professional career as guitarist for the re-formed Edgar Broughton Band before stalking the limelight on his own under the pseudonym Sheriff Jack, and later under his given name. Despite outspoken support from heavyweights such as Elton John, David Bowie, Jools Holland, Paul Weller, and others, as well as critical support, Taylor never found mass public scrutiny but has even remained below the radar of much of the underground listening public. Born and raised in Barnet, North London, Taylor developed his musical talents while recovering from a serious accident, and by his mid-twenties had been invited to join the Edgar Broughton Band.

Taylor lived a life of decadence on the road with Broughton and company, and following the experience, he cut two psychedelic albums in two years for Chime records as Sheriff Jack and disappeared for almost a decade before re-emerging on major label Island in 1996 with his self-titled "debut." Taylor was signed to Island on the strength of his demo alone -- the first time the label had signed an artist under such a circumstance -- and Lewis Taylor was released to great critical acclaim, but the label was unsure how to promote the album due to Taylor's unique amalgamation of classic soul, psychedelia, and rock, resulting in the album making almost no impact on the record-buying public. A second release for Island, titled Lewis II, came out four years later with similar results, and Taylor was dropped from the label. Taylor waited two years before releasing Stoned, Pt. 1 in 2002, this time on his own label, Slow Reality, and followed it up in 2004 with a sequel, Stoned, Pt. 2. ~ Gregory McIntosh, Rovi

I wish I could hire him as a personal alarm clock...what a thing to wake up to in the morning :)
One of my very favorites. Period.
I Love the smooth ease in which he pours the funk. I also love that he goes against the grain and upholds integrity in being true to crossing and mixing genre's that melt into his own unique soulful way. Lewis, you are the audience. Who you are will meet you. Stay true to you. I love it!
I just love all of his music. Powerful, One of my #1 songs of his is " Spirit" and "Send me an Angel" His music is so right to the heart.
With a voice as feeling and soulful as this...You can't stop! We know you will be back, Lewis. :)
Everything you can do to spread the word will help. I've been telling my friends about his stuff for years now, but for whatever reason it hasn't caught. I've been listening to him since 2005, and am continually surprised and impressed by what I heard in his songs. If you can, check out "Too Far Down", "Waves", "Bittersweet " and "Track"
Ditto what everyone else is saying here! I only found out recently that Taylor had retired. I always hoped he'd find his broader audience and hope that his talent drives him back to the studio. In the meantime we have the amazing music he's already created...

If you're reading this Lewis...we want you back. Remember, anything is possible today...just look at Justin Bieber...We know, that part of what has killed it for artists like you. Hey, if you see Harriet Wheeler and hubby Dave over there in the U.K....MAYBE . . . . .
I wish he would come back. Talent this great should continue.... sigh...
He is so damn awesome. I love him.
Lewis is so underrated. I'm not an authority figure on him, but his music is something else. So much soul, so much... Man, this guy needs a break.

This is the first time I've ever heard this guy. Certainly like the sounds of this piece, which is from '96 album "Lewis Taylor". Great sound!!!
