It has been a decade since Escape Music released the classic “Welcome to America” album in 2006 (ESM137) by Taz Taylor and it is a really strong album with none other than Rainbow singer Graham Bonnet on lead vocals. Three years later and “Straight Up” was released (ESM187) with Keith Slack (MSG) taking the mike stand. The album also featured Don Airey (Rainbow / Deep Purple) on keyboards.

After these two really strong releases the Taz Taylor band  decided to go instrumental and tour dates ensued with the likes of Ace Frehley, L A Guns, Molly Hatchet, Dokken, Skid Row, MSG and Great White to name but a few.

Bringing us up to the present day it’s time to return to a line-up that includes a vocalist and so Taz has used the incredible vocal talents of Chandler Mogel (Outloud / Punky Meadows). Chandler and Taz have always kept in touch and it seemed the right time to collaborate on an album… and here is “Pressure and Time”. As Taz states “Pressure and Time” is how you create diamonds”

This new 2017 release is 12 tracks chock full of exciting ideas and quality musicianship, original members Val Trainor and Barney Firks lay down a great rhythm backbone for Taz to show off his guitar playing prowess.
