Singer/songwriter Taylor Sheridan, started his career as a young teenager in Rural Victoria and describes his music as ‘soulfully acoustic’ with influences varying from Stevie Wonder all the way to James Taylor.
Taylor always tries to combine elements of these different styles and make something fresh.
“Singing soulfully is something that feels incredibly natural to me and I love the storytelling of the acoustic folk and singer/songwriters.
Lyrics and melody are where my heart lies but if you find the right chords that genuinely excite you, that’s the real pay off.”
Sheridan says he feels most comfortable when he is on stage with just a guitar and his voice.
“I don’t really know any different to be honest; I know how I want my music to come across so I think playing solo allows me to achieve a more genuine show.”
Having released two independent EP’s and a string of singles, Taylor has toured with some of Australia’s finest acts – just him and his guitar – including Pete Murray, Thirsty Merc, Daryl Braithwaite and John Farnham.
Taylor’s talents and harmonies were most recently recognised when he joined the iconic Australian band ‘Taxiride’ after being their support act for two years and says it’s a “career highlight”.
Taylor has a huge 2019 planned including new music, opening the Regional Tourings Red Hot Summer shows and lots more live shows to come all around the country.
