TAYLOR YATES

TAYLOR YATES

FRIDAY 8TH FEBRUARY

Tasmanian born musician Taylor Yates is a multi-instrumentalist and improv lover, drawing inspiration from the likes of John Butler Trio, Soaked Oats and Josh Rawriri.

In 2016, Taylor first brought his open tuning, soulful slide guitar playing to PITP where he established his flavour locally. More recently, he can be found playing percussion and synth bass in local Surf Reggae Duo SUNDAZE, who recently toured Australia’s east coast.

A special emphasis on nature, reflection and human connection can be drawn lyrically from his music, whilst tribal based rhythm, surf style funk keep it contemporary and contagious.
