“Shawn Taylor is a poet of decay”
New Haven Advocate
Tuesday, January 27, 2008
“On Saturday night I caught singer/songwriter Shawn Taylor at Acoustic Café.
He has a wonderfully damaged voice – a sort of Tom Waits “I gargle cinder blocks in the morning” growl, but less of a put-on than Waits’ bark. His lyrics dabble in a wonderful gritty naturalism that’s uncommon around here… check him out.”
