Andrew Taylor

"Sometimes I like to lose myself whilst playing music, a lot of different stuff comes out. I first learnt the guitar playing along to Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells and my first instrument was made from a cereal box, a kitchen roll tube and some elastic bands". Andrew Taylor's new album, entitled Mohribold, is an epic musical tapestry that weaves between a multitude of genres. The hour plus of music is crammed with a detail and energy that seems to come from another realm.
