JEFF TAYLOR (1954 - ) is a Blues singer-songwriter. Taylor plays a deft enough guitar to come up with a pleasant album of original songs in a wide variety of blues styles. Bands solid, too. - Blues Review, Winter 1999 Issue #36
Jeff Taylor took his first step on the road to national recognition when producer Byl Carruthers inticed him back to L.A. to work on a project of blues classics.
With the success of that first CD, simply titled "Jeff Taylor", Jeff brought in drummer Don Swanson, bassist Lou Castro and keyboardist Jeffrey Barr for work on "Hurtin'Game", his first CD of all original material. Released in July of 1997 on With These Hands Music, "Hurtin' Game" spent many weeks on blues charts in the United States, Canada and as far away as Australia. Since then, Jeff and his new band have played The House Of Blues, B.B.Kings, The Mint, The Troubadour, Fais Do Do and Smokin'Johnnie's. During these shows Jeff has enjoyed performing with many top names, such as Etta James, Eric Sardinas, Cafe R&B and John Juke Logan.
