2023 will see the first ever Sean Taylor Band album release, a live album, featuring multi-instrumentalist Mike Seal on double bass and the Thompson Twins percussionist Paulina Szczepaniak.
This album almost never happened, unbeknown to Sean the sound engineer at one of his band gigs in 2022 recorded the whole concert, afterwards and once Sean heard the recording, it sounded so good that it would be perfect as an album to showcase the new band format. Ten songs are written by Sean with two unique covers of Richie Havens Woodstock classic ‘Freedom’ and a psychedelic version of the musical football anthem ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. Sean’s soulful vocals are centre stage as he effortlessly moves between guitar, piano and harmonica. This album captures Sean and the band at their best, in front of an appreciative audience, enjoy…
