Composer Chris Taylor is set to release his first solo album under the moniker of CANT September 13 on his own Terrible Records. Dreams Come True features Taylor, who serves as bassist, vocalist and producer of Grizzly Bear, collaborating with George Lewis Jr. of Twin Shadow. Twin Shadow’s critically acclaimed record Forget was recently released by Terrible Records and produced by Taylor. Taylor plans to tour in support of the album with a full band, dates to be announced shortly.
Soon after finishing work on Forget Taylor and Lewis turned their attention to Dreams Come True. The pair wrote and recorded most of the material on Dreams Come True in a week and a half in a bedroom connected to what used to be Allaire Studios, where Grizzly Bear also recorded their lauded 2009 release Veckatimest.
Taylor joined Grizzly Bear in 2004 after the release of their debut record. Serving as the group’s producer, Taylor is a multi-instrumentalist who plays bass, clarinet, flute, saxophone and accordion in addition to contributing vocals. Taylor founded Terrible Records in mid-2009 with label partner Ethan Silverman to devote more time to working with emerging artists. He most recently worked with Dev Hynes of Blood Orange.
