ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Will Taylor and Strings Attached team up with Austin music veteran Guy Forsyth for an evening of acoustic musical collaboration Friday, February 9, 2007, 730 and 10pm at the Hyde Park Methodist Church.....

People like to put their music into neat categories—it helps them organize their record collection. But Guy Forsyth likes to simplify things. "When you break it down, there's really only three types of music," he conjectures. "There's the stuff you like, the stuff you don't like, and the stuff you haven't heard."

Once he settled in Austin, Forsyth's passion and affinity for the Delta blues and other music from the 1920s and '30s netted him both a record deal and a loyal following for both his solo work and his spirited collaborations with the Asylum Street Spankers. Forsyth quickly gained a reputation as one of the city's best acoustic blues guitarists, harpists, and saw players.....

Info about Strings Attached: ....

Will Taylor has a musical proposition for you -- a playful, dignified, off-kilter idea that brings honor to Austin's identity as "The Live Music Capital of the World." It's a cool concept. But it's just a bit . . . different. ....

Imagine what might happen, suggests Taylor, if we took Austin's most popular singer-songwriters -- Abra Moore, or Jimmy LaFave, or Patrice Pike, or Ray Wylie Hubbard -- and let them perform, live, in a church? Then imagine if you paired those artists with acoustic "chamber" instruments -- cello, violin, viola, trumpet and hand drums -- and wrote new arrangements, adding dashes of jazz and classical music, that revealed new facets of their most beautiful or familiar songs? ....

Imagine what might happen if you dared to blur all these boundaries between pop music and jazz, between rock music and classical music, between the musical realm and the lyrical realm, between the honky-tonk and the church, and in the spirit of art and fun and experimentation, you reached out for something . . . transcendent? ....

"Risks are taken. Boundaries are broken. The musical realm and the lyrical realm become one, in the heart of downtown Austin, inside one of the oldest churches in Texas. Amazing grace, indeed."
- Brad Buchholtz, Austin American-Statesman

"The first time I heard an arrangement of one of my songs by Will Taylor, it as an a capella lullaby I had written for my daughter ("It's Alright"). Will brought a depth and lushness to my song that had me in tears, and I find that this is what I love about working with him. You hand Will an idea, and it becomes a grand symphonic piece that must be born of dreams, hard work, understanding and, perhaps, genius. His arrangements helped me create what I was seeking: aural arms of love that reach out and wrap around you."
- Sara Hickman....


"It's a lot of fun! They are really fun guys and they have a good time with it, and Will does a lot of work beforehand to make it fun."
- Grammy Winner Shawn Colvin

"As program director for 107.1 KGSR Radio Austin, I have witnessed their development of a consistent body of work over time. In fact, their unique interactions with artists in our community (including Grammy winner Shawn Colvin, songwriting legend Chip Taylor and countless others) have motivated our station to broadcast the live performances of Will Taylor and Strings Attached. The work being done here is of a caliber to that being done anywhere on the planet. It is that sophisticated and singular. Will Taylor and Strings Attached are one of the reasons people call Austin 'The Live Music Capital of the World.' Long may their bows be strung!"
- Jody Denberg, Program Director, KGSR 107.1FM Austin

"It is truly a pleasure to work with Will Taylor and Strings Attached, to hear my music produced in such a sensitive and innovative form, and most importantly to be supportive of CASA's tireless efforts on behalf of abused children."
– Grammy nominee Eliza Gilkyson

"It's a credit to Taylor that an album this eclectic holds so strong at the seams... his inspired creativity and often amazing use of the violin make this album transcend the experimental to become art" - Christopher Hess, Austin Chronicle

"This finely nuanced, gorgeously recorded CD speaks volumes for Austin's music scene... imaginatively reworked, pensive and much to love."
- Chip Deffaa, Entertainment Weekly....
