Bassist Taylor Lee Releases “Lightning Man”
Long Awaited solo recording, “Lightning Man” from Bass Prodigy Taylor Lee–
Taylor was a prodigy of the bass guitar at a young age. With the guidance of his mentor Steve Bailey, the bar was set high from the beginning. In 2008, Taylor received a full scholarship and attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music where he studied and performed with the likes of Lincoln Goines and Mark Whitfield. Since Berklee, Taylor has been on tour internationally with Warner Bros Recording Artists Nico and Vinz, members of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Jeff Sipe Trio, Bela Fleck, Bill Evans, Oteil Burbridge and Marcus King. Taylor has played on David Letterman, The Today Show, The NFL pro-bowl and many other live television programs. With this release of his debut album “Lightning Man” new grounds are being broken and a new voice has emerged for the electric bass!
