One of the awesome perks of signing up for the Hughes Blues Crew (besides getting all of my music before it’s even released) is the opportunity to commission songs you’d like for me to record!The first song I was commissioned to do was Uriah Heep’s “The Wizard.” Here...
"When your name is Hughes Taylor and you call your band The Hughes Taylor Band, you’re signalling to the world that there will be no fancy costumes, elaborately dressed stages or grand entrances here. It’s all about the music, man."
"Fortunately, the guitarist is prodigiously talented in this area, leading a sprightly trio who eschew the turgidity that so often infects those beard-stroking purist blues."
Stepping into that room, completely original (cigarette stains and all), was surreal. It was like being transported to that decade in which so much of the music that has shaped my world was created.
Hughes Taylor is an energetic and ambitious blues artist from Macon, Georgia. He is known for his impressive and accomplished guitar playing and unique electric style that infuses traditional blues roots with upbeat and fast-paced blues and classic rock.
The Hughes Taylor Band is a blues/rock power trio that is reminiscent of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Cream.
