Woodley Taylor Band / CD launch + The Crystal Ship (Folk-Rock/Blues/Americana)
Woodley Taylor, an emerging artist singer/songwriter, composer and story teller from Cambridge, who released his new CD 'Breathe A Little Deeper'.
Original music that will appeal to all fans of Fleetwood Mac, Dire Straits, Neil Young, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Crosby Stills & Nash, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Bob Dylan, The Who, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
With refreshing authenticity and integrity beyond his years, the singer/songwriter and musical craftsman strikes a masterful balance between poignant, powerful songwriting and unforgettably hooking melodies.
A timeless sound, a now rare breed of Classic Rock, Country and Folk infused Art-Rock, both lyrically compelling and musically challenging.
With a powerhouse live sound built on thunderous rhythms and a husky, soulful vocal, Woodley Taylor delivers weeping guitar and harmony driven songs. Communicating with the audience sonically, he brings an almost David Gilmour/Pink Floyd-esque touch to an otherwise Country, Folk-Rock sound.
At times intoxicating, seductive, not without angst and as emotionally fuelled as the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Nick Cave or Neil Young, Woodley Taylor is heavily influenced by the greats of the 60s and 70s and draws inspiration for song writing from both harrowing personal, emotional experiences and a growing distaste for modern cultures.

A high energy, performance of original songs influenced by Rory Gallagher, Dr Feelgood, Tom Petty, The Stones, George Thorogood, Paul Kossoff, Paul Rodgers, Andy Fraser .......
Their crossover blues with a rock influence pushes the boundaries through strong songs, great hooks and some scintillating playing.
The cool juxtaposition between the subtle and the frenetic and the transitions from quiet to loud, is at the core of the unique Sharpees style that is distinctive in the generic blues/rock field.
