Tap Dancin' Daddy


Artist: Taylor Hollingsworth
Label: Flower Moon Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 02 August 2019

Taylor Hollingsworth’s new LP Tap Dancin’ Daddy is his first solo release under his own name since 2011. Hollingsworth’s solo recordings date back to 2003, ranging from weird lo-fi blues-pop (2003's You Know That Summers Comin’ and 2011’s Where to Go, How to Get There and What You Should Know in Advance), to whiplash-shredding, 70’s-era sing-alongs (2005’s Tragic City), to flawlessly-fingerpicked-acoustic avalanche-of-tear ballads (2009’s Life With a Slow Ear)...

Taylor Hollingsworth (Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley Band, Dead Fingers, The Dexateens) is a storyteller and a musician who seems to always be on the go. With his new solo album, Tap Dancin' Daddy, he delivers solid folk tracks which stray into country territory.

On tracks like 'I'm Still a Kid' and 'Lookin' Like a Few' he delivers wry, tongue in cheek observations. In fact it's his sense of surreal humour which really shines through on this release. It's an album that certainly stands out.
