Album Notes
Shawn Taylors’ 3rd original CD, “Home,” is an original song collection, of ‘fresh, new, barebones, Americana, with a heart & a mind on home.’ It features solo tracks, heavy on the vocals, finger-picking & harmonica, & eclectic, economical band numbers, with layered harmonies, & deep groves.

"Home" also includes Bob Dylan’s “Tonight I’ll be Staying Here With You” & a reworking of “Swing Low Sweet Chariot,” into “Swing Low Sweet Liberty.” All of the songs relate to ‘home’ in one sense or another, in Taylor's often, terse , yet always vividly personal, in charecters outside of himself, and unique in their lyrical and melodic style.

It features; Shawn Taylor (acoustic guitar, harmonica & vocals), Chris D’Amato (National Steel slide guitar), Jim McKeeman (Electric guitar & harmony vocals), Paul Opalach (bass), Nick Longo (purcussion & drums), Nathan Bontrager (cello), & Lee-Ann Lovelace (harmony vocals). “Home” was recorded at Long Hill Recording (Shelton, CT) by Paul Opalach, who also recorded Taylor’s first 2 CD’s "Wandering Roots" & "FREE".

Trespass Music (Buzzards Bay, MA) will handle the radio release to 300+ stations across the US, Canada & Europe.

Taylor has performed full time since his ’08 debut release, “Wandering Roots.” His second CD, “FREE,” was released in April 2010. He performs solo & with his band, Wandering Roots, playing venues such as the Bluebird Café (Nashville, TN), the New Haven Folk Festival & the Towne Crier (Pawling, NY – winner of the open mike finals). He’s been an oysterman, carpenter, Appalachian Trail ‘thru’-hiker, father, husband, homeowner, & hitchhiker. He recently launched the blog, subtitled “Thru-hiking through life.”
