"My homeboy Gurf came out to California from Texas in '81,
raving about two texas songwriters: Townes Van Zandt & Eric Taylor...
Eric's first album became sort of a Grail for songwriters at that time...
He's an inspirational figure, & continues to write & sing Canciones Grandes."
Peter Case

"Eric Taylor, I love him, man, he's great" Bob Neuwirth

"A great man and fine songwriter." Michael Weston King

"I bought all of his cd's after the last show, it blew me away...
I even gave a copy to my German girlfriend & asked for it back when she left"

Bobby (average Joe) Tonge

I Shall Be Released / Walkin' back Home / In A Light /

One of the most influential songwriters to ever come out of the state of Texas.
Over the years he has had a profound influence on the evolution and developmen
of artists such as Nancy Griffith and Lyle Lovett..... who says

"I'm always the opening act when I'm around Eric. I love his voice, and he has a great narrative quality and sense of detail. It's good writing, no matter how you cut it, like Springsteen on Nebraska."
Lyle Lovett

"It should be said that not only is Eric Taylor a Brahma songwriter, he is also a stunning acoustic guitar player. Mostly in a D tuning, he finger picks his way into your psyche. With a fine sense of time he creates clouds of tumbling dischords and riffs I can only ever dream of forming."
Iain Matthews
