Some people call him the new John Martyn; others find echoes of Tom Waits and J.J.Cale in his work. However Sean Taylor is simply the new Sean Taylor and an artist on an amazing trajectory.
Sean arrives in Belper fresh from an outstandingly successful UK and European tour with his latest album,the majestic 'Flood and Burn' still attracting plaudits. The Guardian describes him as 'the man to watch' and it's hard to argue with that. Sean regularly records in Austin Texas where they just might know a thing or two about blues rooted songwriters but on this occasion he will be accompanied by double bass player Mike Seal,one of many fine musicians with Belper connections.
No better way to enter the festive season than with a truly memorable gig.

Still very much in the vanguard of the UK folk blues scene while barely into his mid twenties,Sunjay has already packed more into his career than some artists achieve in a lifetime.
Returning to the club scene on the back of a tour playing the leading role in Buddy-surely the part he was born to play- Sunjay continues to channel folk and blues in his own inimitable manner.
However,the rock 'n roll influence is unmistakably there as evidenced by a storming finale medley rivalling the legendary Led Zep epic for virtuosity and intensity. For a taste of his more traditional performance check him out on Belper Music and Arts web page.
