Benjamin Taylor interviews with Seattle Gay News, November 14 issue
We'll have to wait 15 years to see if Kingston and Zuma Rossdale excel to mom's 'Hollaback Girl' success, but we already know that the gene pool has been good to Benjamin Taylor.
Taylor, the son of pop-folk icons James Taylor and Carly Simon, has proven his own singer-songwriting chops on a string of indie recordings, including his 2003 debut Famous Among the Barns and 2005's Another Run Around the Sun. His newest offering, The Legend of Kung Folk Part 1 (The Killing Bite), clearly fits into his impressive resume of handcrafted, organic, and mellow-good tunes. He'll introduce Seattle fans to tracks from his latest album when he opens for John Hiatt at the Moore Theatre on Sunday, November 16. Tickets at www.theparamount.com.
Before Taylor goes onstage he'll talk to Seattle Gay News about his reaction to last week's presidential election, the disappointing defeat of Proposition 8 in California, and update us on his music diva/cancer survivor mom. Grab a copy of Seattle Gay News on November 14 to get familiar with this former Calvin Klein model and actor (appeared on TV's American Dreams), and current rising artist.
