One of the world’s most obscure artists may very well be its best, and we have lost him forever. He’s made it quite apparent that he has no desire to return to the music industry. Of whom do I speak?
Lewis Taylor is by far and away one of the most inspiring, genre-bending artists of our day and age. His music has spanned over 20 years and we, being the careless music listeners that we are, have let his gift roll on by. That’s not to say that he doesn’t have his loyal fan base –all cult figures do. The saddest part of this story, however, is the fact that even when the States did momentarily noticed him as a buzzworthy artist, he was already so disillusioned with the mainstream music industry at about 40 years old he effectively said, “Fuck it!”
Now, I say “about 40 years old”. Not much is known about this man because, being the G that he is, he has been able to keep his private life and anything concerning his past out of the public eye –not that that really makes much of a difference considering that even in his home country of England he was pretty much a nameless artist. But, for the sake of trying my best to introduce America yet again to its inherent stupidity, I will attempt to muster up some sort of biographical information.
