Additional Info:
WillyTea Taylor is a father, brother, and son.His remarkable ability to sing about profound subjects in a simple way makes his songs a great place to lose yourself. Much of that comes from his upbringing.Willygrew up surrounded by rolling hills and horses in the small town of Oakdale, California. Known as the Cowboy Capital of the World for breeding so many world champion rodeo cowboys, Oakdale is stillWillys home and the setting for many of his songs.Despite coming from a long line of cattlemen his grandfather Walt was one of the most respected of his generation Willys first love was baseball. As a catcher, he had a gift for the nuances of calling a game from behind the plate. When a knee injury ended his ability to catch,Willyturned his attention to music.At the age of 18, a discerning and intimate set by Greg Brown at the Strawberry Music Festival inspiredWillyto pursue life as a folk singer. Strawberry would play an integral role inWillys development as a musician, going from spectator to stagehand, to performer. He made his main stage debut with his band the Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit at the 2009 festival. In 2015,Willymade his solo debut on the main stage.Willyhas charmed fans at some of the best festivals in the country.Willycalls John Hartford, Roscoe Holcomb, Bob Dylan, KISS, Weird Al Yankovic and Willie Nelson his biggest influences, but is always quick to advocate for his favorite contemporary songwriters which include Tom VandenAvond, Nathan Moore, and his Good Luck partner in crime, Chris Doud. He and VandenAvond have travelled the country together on a series of tours they call Searchin for Guy Clarks Kitchen where each evenings show is just a precursor to an endless quest for the kind of serene late night scene depicted in the cult classic documentaryHeartworn Highways.On his new releaseKnuckleball Prime,Willyreceived support from greats like Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), Greg Leisz (Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton), and Gabe Witcher and Noam Pikelny of the Punch Brothers. Of the albums title, Taylor says most baseball players peak in their twenties, but knuckleball pitchers tend to blossom in their late thirties and early forties. Im staring down my knuckleball prime.Led by producer Michael Witcher, the songs onKnuckleball Primeare arranged and accompanied magnificently by a first rate team of musicians and engineers. If youre a fan of well-written lyrics, alluring melodies, and a voice that ties them together with emotion as deep as the artists own roots, youll savor Knuckleball Prime, and just about anything elseWillyTea Taylor has ever done.
