Smashwords Interview

Cursty Hoppe talks with Jonathan Taylor about his wrting...
English singer / songwriter born Warwick 1966.

Taylor notes with a smile, “At 15 when I bought my first second-hand guitar and amp for 75 pounds, my mother said it was a complete waste of money.” Although it’s left unsaid, one gets the feeling she’s probably still eating her words today. Since then, his reviewers have been somewhat more generous. It’s been said he is the possessor of a ‘marvellous dusty, dusky voice full of resonance and beauty’ by local press and a ‘real talent’ by the British Politician Tony Benn, while fans continue to liken him to Don Mclean, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen and even Neil Diamond.

Taylor’s lyrics remain consistent in theme, his overwhelming need to lend his voice to those who remain without. Whether they’re victims of the Bulgarian Communist Regime (Izvinavi) or an elegy to those lost in 9/11 (‘If Only’) and the messages they left behind. Again and again he returns to his subject, in ‘Holocaust Denier’ written after meeting England’s only known Jewish Auschwitz survivor Leon Greenman, his words convey not only the horror of genocide but implore us to remember, should we let it happen again. Both tracks featured on BBC and worldwide radio and for which British PM of the time Gordon Brown, wrote to thank him. Even the house he now calls home in central Bulgaria, used as a Partisan hide-out for anti-nazi resistance fighters throughout WW2, has brought him inspiration in the form of the song ‘Partisan.’ You begin to get the feeling Taylor needs this kind of connection to the past and a large helping of tragedy for both sustenance and creativity.

Taylor’s music urges us to question why atrocities happen, whether they are individual or collective. He takes tragedy, seemingly internalising the pain and then slowly from his depths comes something beautiful, skilful, deeply memorable and strangely- immensely listenable.

Cursty Hoppe, 2012.
What others have said so far...
'Jonathan who has real talent has identified the crimes that are committed in our name. The songs are beautiful and the cause a worthy one'

Tony Benn. British Politician, Author & Anti-War Activist.

'This song (The Holocaust Denier) was magic, In the right way the gravitas of it is completely delivered.'

Jonathan I'Anson, BBC Radio Leeds.

'a rare talent indeed', 'the possessor of a marvelous dusty, dusky voice full of resonance and beauty' 'writes awe-inspiring songs, both lyrics and melody' - 'deeply moving', 'iconic' and 'profound'

Andrew Liddle, Halifax Evening Courier. Victoria Theatre Concert Review.

'"A Useful Fool" by far the best songs you have so far produced, melodies, recording and lyrics were brilliant. It's been on the CD player constantly, .... and I've played several tracks from it on The Akoustik Hour.'

Stan Graham. Award Winning Songwriter. Presenter: Community Radio & BBC Radio York.

'You sound like the UK Vissotzky - accentuating on messages and lyrics, not only the music which is good.'

Kiril Zdravkov. Manager Cosmic Voices

'Partisan was the official song of our tour, I think we played it a hundred times in the car.'

'Cobario.' Florian Stradner Mangement - Vienna.

'I also want you to know that we have been getting great feedback on your song (Valentine.) I haven't come across anyone who doesn't like it.'

Gari Sullivan - Producer: The Sixteenth Touch

'I bet lots of people say that but you've got an amazing voice, really intense - wow!' AND 'your music is inspired,' it was "simple and sincere - Fresh magic in a choking, dusty world"

Audience feedback - Cowling House Concerts

I've been reading a poetry anthology called 'Up the line to death 1914-18' and I've never heard songs capturing the feeling of being out there so well.

Kirsten Guschal.

'Jonathan is a thoughtful and intelligent lyric writer and a superb musician. His voice ranges from Cat Stevenesque right through to smoky blues.'

Richard Hollis. The Unofficial Steeleye Span Website

'Visited your website, downloaded the album (Debut - The Collection) and liked what I heard very much. I've put a little plug for it onto The Folk Corporation's forum.'

Barry http://www.talkawhile.co.uk/'

'Jonathan comes from a very talented family and talented he is!'

The Country Star Page

'He has a fabulous voice, really rich and resonant and full of emotion, very distinctive.'

State Of Undress.

'I enjoyed your performace. I found it, gritty, honest and sensitive. Thanks.'

Audience Feedback. Hebden Bridge Trades Club. 2009.

'When I saw a song had been written about the contents of Great Grandfather's box my initial reaction was - how could it possibly be done, and with a list too. Well, I think it's been done in a very clever way, and I really enjoyed it! It left me humming... Congratulations Jonathan.'

I believe that readers of these memoirs are likely to find them vile and repulsive, reasons that I question the purpose of publishing it. Do we indulge the psychopath?

Smashwords book reviews by Brittunculi Records & Books UK

  • Nylon Tales on Jan. 30, 2013
    (no rating)
    A consistently brilliant writer who can glide from fiction, non-fiction, horror and erotica effortlessly. As always an exciting but well written work, a delight to read. Not just erotica, but a firm established story line, it's good.
  • War Wives 1: Punishment Party on Feb. 07, 2013
    (no rating)
    Consistently brilliant writing, recommended bedtime reading with all the naughtiness and humuor you need, bravo Jane!
