“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
TORONTO, ON – March 5, 2018 – Taylor Knox will join fellow Toronto rock group The Beaches on their upcoming national tour this spring. Kicking off in Vancouver on April 21st – the 16 date run will end with a big hometown show at The Opera House on May 11. See below for full list of tour dates.
Taylor will be playing tunes from his latest full-length LOVE that received critical acclaim across the country. 2017 saw Taylor play top notch festivals Reeperbahn, Ottawa Blues Fest, Halifax Pop Explosion, among a string of headlining dates and most recently wrapped up a tour alongside Rich Aucoin. Check out his recent live performance videos, for “Saturday” and “Didn’t Even Try”, directed by Peter Dreimanis of July Talk. Check them out here.
His 2015 debut EP, Lines, marked the arrival of a rare breed of singer/songwriter, one whose instincts are naturally attuned to the power pop principles of crunchy guitars, smooth harmonies. On his debut full-length LOVE, Knox worked alongside his old friend Afie Jurvanen (aka Bahamas) to produce a few tracks alongside co-producer Josh Korody and mixing team of Gus Can Go and Werner F. Jurvanen contributes some of his trademark guitar stylings as well, but as on the EP, Knox handles most of the instrumentation himself. The album also has good friend, Molly Rankin (of Alvvays), contributing background vocals on several tracks including “Running Into Love”. While so much of LOVE sounds as effortless , it’s the direct result of the wealth of experience he’s gained over the past decade through playing with a host of Canada’s most acclaimed artists, including Owen Pallett, Rich Aucoin, Luke Doucet, Hayden, Jason Collett, and Alvvays.
