Eric Taylor plays a LilFest Concert in Mount Vernon, Iowa
ERIC TAYLORs just been nominated for an Emmy Award! For musical compositions he wrote for the Storyworks.TV docmentary Road Kid to Writer: The Tracks of Jim Tully. (Both songs are included on Erics Studio 10 CD.)

Eric Taylor is a master storyteller and has been one of the finest southern songwriters for the last four decades. Influencing such well-known artists as Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett (both of whom have covered several of his songs) and Steve Earle, Taylor tours extensively throughout North America and Europe. He has appeared on Austin City Limits, Late Night With David Letterman, NPR's "Morning Edition" and "Mountain Stage" and BBC Radio. A mesmerizing performer whose shows will leave you wanting more.

"I'm always the opening act when I'm around Eric. I love his voice, and he has a great narrative quality and sense of detail. He sort of takes you out of your own reality and into the reality of his songs. It's good writing no matter how you cut it."  Lyle Lovett

"He's the real deal. Eric Taylor was one of my heroes and teachers when I started playing around Houston in the early 1970s."  Steve Earle

"At first, the gift sounds impossible: A writer who can distill a novel or a deeply affecting tragic play into a song-poem of four minutes duration. And then you meet Eric Taylor and realize that such a person exists, and in our own time. Takes your breath every time."  Marilyn Rea Beyer, WUMB

"It should be said, that once you become a Taylor fanatic, it gives one immense joy and pride to be able to enlighten others to the man's work, as though he were a special reward, presented only on intimate occasions, to a deserving few. That's the effect he has on me. He's converted this tight, unwavering circle of supporters who feel that no distance is too great to travel for a night of Eric and will do it walking backwards, through tornado and forest fire to be there."  Iain Matthews

"Eric Taylor came on the stage at the Maze in Nottingham without any ceremony. He started a little blues riff on his blond acoustic guitar (a beautiful-sounding, handmade 'Ross-Kinscherff'). He played for his audience but never to the crowd. He didn't look for cliched climaxes or manufactured endings. It was always an intimate gig, a reflective affair, an evening for devoteesI went with a couple of players, guys who know the mysteries of dadgad, who understand a little about the merits of a B string dropped down to A and the quiet craft of a good song well written. They stood either side of me and looked mean if they thought I was going to be critical in any way. They kept pointing out things, making sure I understood; they wanted the man looked after. Eric Taylor seems to inspire that sort of devotion, that sort of affection, that sort of regard; like he is an endangered species  maybe he is."  Maverick
