An old soul hailing from Macon Georgia USA, Hughes Taylor was immediately drawn to the blues when he first picked up the guitar. Today an accomplished guitar player with a voice that is bigger than he is, Hughes has developed his signature style: a fiery brand of blues-rock whose lineage stretches back to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Cream.
The Hughes Taylor Band is a blues-rock power trio reminiscent of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, and Cream; inescapably influenced by Hughes’s hometown heroes, the Allman Brothers. Consequently, long improvisations and jams are a staple of any live Hughes Taylor Band performance.
With three studio albums and a live album under his belt, Hughes released his fourth studio album, Modern Nostalgia, showcasing his growth as a musician, songwriter, and producer. Written during the pandemic and recorded at the legendary Capricorn Sound Studios, the music on the new record is a sweet mix of blues, blues-rock, and southern rock; a modern successor to the great music that put Capricorn on the map many years ago. Modern Nostalgia is OUT NOW.
