27-03-2019 12:00:00 27-03-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Chip Taylor at The Loft - 3/27 | 6:30PM DOORS - 8:30PM Songwriters Hall of Fame 2016 inductee Chip Taylor has been writing and performing for nearly 60 years and shows no sign of slowing down. The New York Times says it best, "If you only know him as the as the guy who wrote 'Wild Thing' and 'Angel of the Morning" — you don't know him! Chip Taylor is making some of the most distinctive acoustic music around today." Taylor and master guitarist John Platania (Van Morrison) will be playing his biggest hits along with the fans favorites - the songs from his long and storied career that have become viral Spotify smashes and those most requested at shows. In addition, Chip will be debuting songs from his latest album. Creating distinctive music that is also enduring and influential has been Chip Taylor's métier over the course of what is closing in on five decades as "one of America's finest songwriters as well as a masterful singer and performer," says Rolling Stone. His two best-known songs are only some of the many pop, rock, country and R&B chart hits he wrote in the 1960s (Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield and Frank Sinatra all recorded his songs). Taylor was then one of the pioneers of the pivotal country-rock movement as a recording artist in the 1970s. His 1973 album, Last Chance, (out recently in a deluxe reissue) remains a beloved cult classic. "Chip Taylor could've rested on his laurels years ago and still been way ahead of everybody else today. Lucky for us he didn't and he's making some of the most relevant music out there," said Buddy Miller. Since returning to music in 1996 he has enjoyed elder statesman stature within the Americana, contemporary folk and singer-songwriter scenes as an artist in his own right as well as in collaboration on albums and in performance with John Prine, Carrie Rodriguez, Kendel Carson and John Platania. In a remarkable and prolific run, Taylor has released nearly an album a year since his return, each rising high on the Americana chart. As England's The Guardian notes, "Chip Taylor, like Johnny Cash, is well worth rediscovering by a new generation." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=359161 City Winery City Winery
