Otis Taylor

Fantasizing About Being Black



Released: 24th Feb 2017


Blending his unique songwriting & the compelling musical approach that he calls trance blues, the recording inspires with stories of the enduring human spirit, letting its hypnotic sound as well as Taylor's lyrics tell a story of continuing struggle.

a stark & poetic lesson on the historical trauma of the African American experience, from the voyages of slave ships to the Mississippi Delta. Musically, Otis Taylor produces a unique sound that draws on African American culture but is innovative in the instrumentation & arrangement. Typical for the artist, he's found a unique way of expressing ideas in a work that honours musical traditions yet moves the genre forward in a creative mix that has an intellectual & emotional impact.
