Jonny Taylor

DUMBLEYUNG
Caught in the whirlwind, it seems like yesterday that West Australian based singer songwriter Jonny Taylor signed his first record deal. In fact it has been two months of single releases, planning, securing various festival and artist supports around Australia, along with the exciting announcement of Jonny’s new album ‘Dig Deep’ set for release 17th November 2017. To thank his loyal supporters over the years, a unique album pre-sale promotion is also on offer with pre-sale purchases receiving three immediate gratitude track downloads with the chance to win 3 nights away with Jonny as your host, flights included! Described as a fortuitous mix of Pearl Jam and Keith Urban, Taylor fuses rocky riffs and poignant lyrics with clever melodies. “Dig Deep” was four years in the making since Jonny’s first Album debut for “Something to Say” in the ARIA Australian album charts back in 2013. An emotionally charged musician who doesn’t set out to sound like anybody in particular, Jonny lets his love of grunge and rock music fuse seamlessly with his passion for a meaningful story. Taylor says it took time to accept his position in the music scene, exploring how an artist could sit on the fringe of many genres, to focus on his roots and create a record that made him proud. “I spent a couple of years wondering how I can tailor my sounds to fit in one spot or another. I was scared of falling in a void between genres. Karen Waters (head of Red Rebel Music) heard the album, rang me up and said ‘mate- that is a great album!’ It was exciting to have a label hear my work and understand who I am as an artist. I’ve finally worked up the courage to just do what comes naturally and make a record that blends all my influences, without necessarily being influenced by any one particular thing.” That approach is evident in “Dig Deep”, with the songs creating an expedition through life – delivered in a beautifully produced, high impact, high-energy album. On the edge of contemporary rock and grunge, with the hint of hard country; from power ballads, to heavy riffy tracks and odd time signatures, “Dig Deep” makes for a balanced, well-crafted collection of songs, which is somehow cohesive and natural. His subsequent touring lifestyle and hours in front of the microphone have earned Jonny a reputation as one of the hardest working and most powerful young singer songwriters in the Australian music scene, averaging 180 shows annually, finding exposure through festivals and major artist supports. Jonny regards his touring lifestyle a wonderful opportunity to road test his new material and be inspired to write songs about the everyday things that we go through as people. Recently named as a finalist for Regional Act of the Year at the WAMi Awards (West Australian Music Industry), the timing couldn’t be better for Taylor’s new album release, Dig Deep will be released on 17th of November 2018 through MGM Distribution
