Answer: They have all used the talents of Memphis musician Paul Taylor.
A multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter and producer, Taylor has been a professional musician for 25 of his 42 years. With three solo releases under his belt (Open Closed and Share It, makeshift records 2007 and 2009 respectively, and a newly released EP The Old Forest Trail), Taylor is gearing up for a year of multiple releases in 2017.
Taylor is in Door County to help support fellow Memphis musician Eric Lewis with his Fishstock Series show (held Sept. 3), and will play a solo show at Door County Makers Space Sept. 8 at 8 pm. His music consists of acoustic storytelling to dazzling looping. He is a virtuoso of drums, bass and guitar.
Doors open at 7 pm and the show begins at 8. The cost is $15 or $12 if you buy early tickets.
