Extolling sharp melodies, immaculate acoustic strings and a barrage of tender lyrics, this 29 year-old singer/songwriter demands your attention with a dynamic musicality that comes straight from the heart.

Following a successful European tour with Tracy Chapman and an impressive debut LP - 2003's critically acclaimed "Famous Among The Barns" - Ben Taylor returns this year with two eagerly anticipated releases on Independiente, "Lady Magic EP", September 25th, and the album "Another Run Around The Sun", October 30th.

The son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, Ben's life was always centered around music and, as his new material shows, it continues to be his forte. "They've both influenced me equally in very different ways,"  he says. "I learned how to play guitar by teaching myself my Dad's sound. He's the one I really learned about music, but then once I started writing songs my Mom really helped me."
