Nashville Americana/Roots Rock singer/songwriter/guitarist, Taylor Kropp, is touring in support of his album “Coming Up for Air.” Taylor’s “authentic sound filled with strong melodies” (What’s Up Magazine) will appeal to fans of Jason Isbell, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Marty Stuart, Warren Haynes, and Robben Ford.
Influenced by the melting pot of American music, including The Allman Brothers Band, Dwight Yoakam, and Tom Petty, it’s the imagery of the old west and desert that is ever present in his music. Taylor says, “I am personally drawn to themes of the old west. My family used to camp yearly in the Mojave Desert and as a child I would explore the cliffs of the campground and visit ghost towns, old mines and hiking trails…On one of those family vacations, I saw somebody playing a guitar around a campfire. It seemed like such mystical and magical thing to me that the image stuck around in my brain from that point on.”
