WHAT HE DOES
Jules is known for ‘live looping’ during his solo performances. Using only an acoustic guitar, and a variety of floor pedals, he creates sonic landscapes far beyond your typical singer-songwriters. In 2017, Jules was a featured performer at the Y2K17 Providence International Live Looping Festival.
WHAT HE'S DOING NOW
"Overall, the collection is the musical equivalent of the Great American Novel" - Paula Cummings, NYSMusic.com
"Dark, shimmering, electric desert snarl; good stuff, well-played and even-better-conceived." - John Burdick, Hudson Valley One
"Musically, Mountain Time is stellar. The production is crisp, and the individual songs ebb and flow perfectly within themselves...This is a record I could see my Dad playing through the stereo while working together in my childhood garage. It’s a record to drive through the flat-plained area of the country with. It’s white-collar in blue-collar clothing..." TJ Foster, DigitalWheatPaste.com
WHERE HE'S PERFORMING NEXT
Alone and Solo Volume 1 is a live looping performance, released in album format with 4K video footage. This first volume was recorded at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City. Each subsequent volume will be performed in a different major city, with an empty street pictured on the cover.
"His vocals are as weathered as an old highway sign and as inviting as your favorite mom and pop diner... Overall, the collection is the musical equivalent of the Great American Novel: a work that captures what it means to be human – the shortcomings and the triumphs, the heartaches and the joys." - Paula Cummings, NYSMusic.com
"A kind of high-drama ambient American rock with equal parts grit and ether. Its affinities are many: Wilco, Calexico, Ryan Adams, Drive-by Truckers, Neil Young…do I need to continue? What the references don’t necessarily suggest is how nicely crafted and layered these relatively crunchy, hard-rocking tracks are: dark, shimmering, electric desert snarl; good stuff, well-played and even-better-conceived. It is not hard to imagine any of these songs showing up in a stylized modern Western." - John Burdick, Hudson Valley One
"Mountain Time isn’t something you hear too often nowadays, and I do mean that as a compliment. This is a record I could see my Dad playing through the stereo while working together in my childhood garage. It’s a record to drive through the flat-plained area of the country with. It’s white-collar in blue-collar clothing." - TJ Foster, DigitalWheatPaste.com
"Not long ago, I traveled to NYC to do a live video for Jules Taylor at Rockwood Music Hall. Jules has a very unique solo performance using loop pedals to accentuate his bluesy tone and spiraling groove, leaving people saying to themselves 'how did he do that?' - which he is always happy to talk about after... If you haven't seen him perform live, I highly suggest you check him out!" - David "FrontRowDave" Beesmer
"Settle in and get comfortable with longing, pain and discovery as Jules Taylor guides you along with compelling vocals, blended with tranquil melodies that will relax and inspire you along the journey." Jacque Roche, radio host, 103.7 FM PawlingPublicRadio.org
