Biography

Neil Martin Taylor is a british guitarist who grew up in Bristol. As a teenager, he played in local bands before joining "Neon", featuring Curt Smith (Tears For Fears), Pete Byrne (Naked Eyes) and Rob Fisher (Climie/Fisher). He went on to form "Violent Blue" with bassist Charlie Jones (Page/Plant), later releasing the album "You Gotta Stay Young" with Magnet Records.

During this period Neil played guitar with Tears For Fears on the album 'Songs From The Big Chair', featuring the famous one take guitar solo on "Everybody Wants To Rule The World". Neil’s involvement with Tears For Fears was long lasting, seeing him play on two world tours and the band's third album "The Seeds Of Love".

During his career he has recorded and toured with: Robbie Williams, Chris de Burgh, Natalie Imbruglia, Peter Gabriel, Rod Stewart, Morrissey, Tina Turner, The Pretenders, Van Morrison, Holly Johnson, Paul Young, Climie Fisher, and more.

In 2001 Taylor was asked to play guitar on Robbie Williams album "Sing While You're Winning". He was then asked back to play on Rob's album "Escapology" and in 2003 he finally joined the Robbie Williams band and has toured the world several times.

Neil Taylor also worked on his own career as an artist and recorded three albums: "Bullets For Angels" with songwriter Steve Torch (who works for artists such as Kylie Minogue and Cher) and his own "No Self Control" in 2011 and an acoustic album "Chasing Butterlies" in 2012.

On March 22, 2013 Earcatcher Records will release Neil Taylors brandnew CD "NO GOD LIKE ROCK 'N' ROLL" - an epic classic, paired with the trendy sounds of tomorrow: "This is 100% me. A record I have dreamed for my whole life and one I'm more than proud to step into the spotlight with."

Offering a quite heavier sound than on his previous records Neil Taylor delivers a mature Music Feast - relying on his glorious past as servant for Rocks Greatest, yet eyeing an even brighter future as major competitor to them all. "Having already played record breaking crowds, I'm nowhere resting on my laurels but ready to do it all over again. This time as the main attraction."

The first offering from "NO GOD LIKE ROCK 'N' ROLL" is the Smash-Hit-Single "SELF ADDICTED". A haunting melody, some killer licks and a cathy phrase - european radio is already all over for it.

From April to June 2013 Neil will be touring Europe with Chris de Burgh, not only as a band member but also playing support.
