Biography

Eric Taylor was born in São Paulo in the late 80's. Growing up in a house brimming with 60´s and 70´s rock and folk, Taylor soon began to write his own songs. After playing in several rock bands in São Paulo, he decided to go solo. With influences ranging from britpop and indie rock to folk, country and post- rock, Taylor has released 3 EPs: “Lines We Wrote in Spring(2010)” “Northern Lights or Summer Skies (2011)” and “Big City Lights (2012)”.
Taylor´s lyrics evoke the most diverse themes, from life in the big cities, to the changing of the seasons, in either surreal or objective ways, but always uniquely and poetically. Arrangements are varied and feature instruments like: harmonica, mandolin, guitar, concertina, glockenspiel and violin.
When playing live Taylor performs solo, as a duo with Ana Luísa Ramos or with a full band.

Recently, Taylor has returned from his first European "mini tour" where he played in Austria and Denmark.
