Press Kit



"This is what folk music should evoke - tenderness, beauty and warmth all at once. There is something inviting, yet heart-breaking, about Taylor’s performance...It boasts infectious songwriting coupled with pure, brittle and unfiltered emotion. Surely that is all the music goodness one could possibly seek from a folk record."

- Dom Eagle, Divide and Conquer Music

"The session highlights Taylor where he shines best, simplifying and letting the song flow. The gentle, but confident picking he lays out under his voice makes me feel like I am listening to something timeless. His songs could have been out of the 60s or 70s or present day."

- Brian Carroll, Red Line Roots






Wanderer, wonderer, journeyman, folksinger — Nate Taylor fuses story and experience on a quest for connection through music — to people, to nature, to truth. Often compared to Nick Drake for his resonant fingerpicking, Taylor paints an ethereal soundscape with his soaring vocals that implores a kind of reverence for the moment. His songs wrestle with love, loss, and purpose in pursuit of the ideal that music can be a force for understanding in an ever more disparate world. While a faithful steward of the Boston folk scene for much of the year, Taylor completed his third annual house show tour in 2017, affectionately titled There And Back Again, or TABA 2017, covering 8300 miles and living out his vision of community through music. In November 2017, Taylor released “A Love Story | Live From America,” a collection of five live recordings from TABA 2017. Join the adventure when Nate comes to your town in 2018.
