Taylor Hicks in With Great Musicians

A new Taylor Hicks interview on December 10th with Tim of Tim’s Travels is one of the best so far in my opinion. That opinion is based on the commentary by Tim and the rest on the show. Taylor Hicks has had a time with press the last couple years. That started changing when Taylor took the role as Teen Angel in the Broadway play Grease and now that he is playing the part in The National Tour of Grease that great press is continuing. It is also spreading over in to the hype about Taylor’s upcoming Sophomore CD “The Distance”.

Taylor Hicks is now on is own with his own record company Modern Whomp Records and the Distribution deal with Artist2Market. Taylor has landed some major names to help with this CD. Simon Climie (Eric Clapton, B.B King) as his producer. Nathan East who is Eric Clapton’s bass player plays on the album along with, ,Abe Laborial Jr who played with McCartney and Doyle Brammel. Like Tim says these guys have enough money that they do not have to play with Taylor Hicks if they don’t want to. They don’t need Taylor. I think it says a lot for what Climie and these musicians think about Taylor Hicks and his upcoming album. I think they have a lot of faith in him and the music. All of this just makes me even more anxious to get my hands on this CD as soon as it becomes available,

Video is below.

It's actually Abe Laborial Jr., who has played drums for Paul McCartney (among others) since '01.
