Byron Keith Taylor: News and Forum

Sorry for the Delay - March 21, 2018

Hello to all of my fans old and new! I'm in the process of working on a new CD project which, as I said before, will be a mixture of old and new material; in other words, it's a retrospective of many years as a singer, songwriter, producer, and arranger. I must say that it's a lot of fun revisiting old sessions which is what I'm doing first. Once that process is over, then I will record new material that I am currently writing. In addition, my fiction writing will continue, so stick around for the ride because it's going to be a good one!:)BKT

Happy New Year! - January 7, 2018

Hello, and Happy New Year! I hope that everyone is having a healthy and happy life. There is so much planned for 2018 like a new recording, more Fiction work, and a ton of other surprises I will unveil for the next months ahead so please keep coming back for more entries in my News journal! BKT :)

Back in the USA - December 17, 2017

Well, I'm back in America and I must say that I had a blast in Germany and France! One of my favorite music spots in Karlsruhe, Scruffy's, was absolutely delightful and it was fun getting to know new people and meeting new fans! And what can I say about Paris? It is truly one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the Parisians could not have been friendlier! Now that I have refreshed my batteries, I'm already making new plans for the upcoming year. For example, I will record some new songs to accompany remastered and reimagined songs of mine from the past and of course, like all of my work, I intend to play all of the instruments save for one or two. The project will be called "The Byron Taylor Songbook" which will consist of what I feel is my very best work. I've also asked the opinions of fans, friends, family, and perfect strangers feedback and the CD will be a result of my research. I'm thrilled to start a new project as well as continuing my Fiction writing.After all, I love to write short stories and novels just as much as writing songs. Well, that's all for now! Take care! BKT :)

Europe Bound - November 29, 2017

Hello! I'm excited that I'm leaving for Europe in a few days to play my music. Being there is always exciting and extremely satisfying. If you haven't already, feel free to order a copy of either "The Raven Trail" or "Tales from Worldhaven" CD. Single songs are also available for purchase :). The new project will be called "The Byron Taylor Songbook" which will be a musical retrospective of my work. But for now, off I go! :( BKT

Paris on the Horizon - October 28, 2017

Hello, my fans! I'm happy to report that Paris is also on my itinerary for gigs in December! I will keep you more up to date, I promise! This is a very exciting time for me with new performances and a new CD on the horizon as well for a new release next year! :) BKT

Back To Germany - October 20, 2017

Hey gang! I have been so busy getting ready for my next German trip but NEVER too busy to reach out to you! I will be back in Germany for the first few weeks in December and I am going all over the beautiful country after being invited to perform! Before I go, I am already working on pre-production for the retrospective CD I will release next year of old material as well as new songs! I'm really looking forward to re-visiting the old stuff which will include remixes and updates as well as new material I have written. I don't know what I will call it yet, but I have a few ideas:). This has been an interesting year and 2018 is sure to bring new challenges, but I'm ready for them! Take care!:) BKT

Youtube - August 25, 2017

Hey gang! I want to give you the opportunity to revisit stuff I have done in the past by going to my youtube link I will provide below. For the new project, some of these songs will be remixed, remastered and enhanced (vocals will definitely be more upfront!) but I thought it would be cool for you to check out what I did many years ago before the new CD is released next year.

Half Way There - July 18, 2016

Good news! By next week, I will reach the half way mark for the new CD that I'm working on, "Tales from Worldhaven," and it is exceeding my expectations. I always strive to release my best material at a given time, and this project will be no different. I believe that artists should always challenge themselves and I have tread upon ground so far that has been hitherto undiscovered which is one of my greatest joys during this recording process. I can tell you that the new songs will cover topics from brotherhood to self awareness. I can also promise you that I will do my best to make it it a truly special CD! In the meantime, please feel free to enjoy the songs from my past EP, "The Raven Trail," that is based upon the novella I wrote with the same name.  There are even excerpts from the book on this website, so check out the Fiction section here! Take care!BKT:)

I even have a new cat! In the next post, I will tell you all about some of the new songs, so keep your eyes peeled! Don't forget to check out my original fiction which ranges from Steampunk to superheroes!:)BKT
