The New York Times says it best about Chip Taylor: “If you only know him as the guy who wrote “Wild Thing" and “Angel of the Morning" - you don't know him. Chip Taylor is making some of the most distinctive acoustic music around these days." A country/rock trailblazer, Taylor is back with the follow-up to one of the most critically acclaimed albums of his long career - The Little Prayers Trilogy (Best of 2015 - Uncut Magazine; 5 Stars - Country Music People).
Little Brothers is a charming and intimate collection of songs the swerves away from the heavy topics found on the sprawling Little Prayers (with the exception of "Refugee Children" which deals with Taylor's ﬁrst hand encounter with the issue while touring Europe). Little Brothers, co-produced with Goran Grini, is ﬁlled with a engaging, graceful tunes that will delight his fans and earn new ones. The title track is a fanciful tale involving his brothers - Academy Award winning actor ]on Voight and world-renowned volcanologist Barry Voight. The music is enlivened by Taylor's longtime master guitarist John Platania (Van Morrison).
Chip Taylor will be inducted into the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 9 and performing
a retrospective concert in New York City in June. He will be touring with Carrie Rodriguez in the late summer to celebrate the deluxe reissue of their duet album Red Dog Tracks (Train 53).
