SET TO PLAY FINAL SHOWS OF THE YEAR IN HAMILTON AND TORONTO THIS DECEMBER
Toronto, ON – November 27, 2017 – Taylor Knox is wrapping up a whirlwind of a year that saw him release his debut full-length LOVE (Cadence Music), along with playing top notch festivals Reeperbahn, Ottawa Blues Fest, Halifax Pop Explosion, among a string of headlining dates. To cap off the year, he brings you two live performance videos, courtesy of Indie88, for “Saturday” and “Didn’t Even Try”, directed by Peter Dreimanis of July Talk. Check them out here.
On working with Knox, Dremanis says, “Having lived in the same Toronto neighbourhood as Taylor for a few years, I became a fan of his music when he released his Lines EP in 2015. He shared his new record with me and I fell in love with it. I have so much respect for the scene of musicians he came up with, bands like Zeus, Golden Dogs and Forces. I thought it’d be cool to film a session with the band playing the tunes live off the floor. Leah surrounded them with party decorations and old TVs we found, and a bunch of talented friends (Jared Raab, Mike McLaughlin, Nick Tiringer and Calvin Hartwick) kindly came to shoot and record it for beer and pizza. It’s nice to look at a project like this as a time capsule that captures the Toronto scene at what feels like an exciting time to me. I feel lucky to be a part of that scene, and I hope people watching the videos can tell how much fun they were for us to make.”
Knox will play his final two shows of the year in Hamilton on December 7 and a hometown Toronto show on December 8 at The Garrison. Buy tickets here.
“Love‘s overall sentiment and vibe can be boiled down to the line ‘With you, it’s always summer’ from ‘Running Into Love,’ and the record as a whole generally proceeds accordingly; it’s as bright and immediate and easy to get with as those words imply.” – The Toronto Star
“Knox’s latest single “Running Into Love” provides a glimpse into the singer/songwriter’s upcoming record, bringing forth a sound that has a refreshing effortlessness to it. The track is fun, light, and best listened to on an August afternoon.” – Indie88
“It’s fuzzy, toe-tapping, summery Canadiana.” – NOW Magazine
“Remember Knox’s name, as he could very well follow in the footsteps of Brendan Canning or even be the next Bryan Adams.” – The Revue
December 7 – Hamilton, ON – Mills Hardware
December 8 – Toronto, ON – THe Garrison
