Taylor Marvin's Band "The Current"

A Young Guitar Wonder Progresses!




We first featured Taylor Marvin in Sept. '09 when he was 15. His Pops keeps us updated as Taylor continues to pursue gigging and some serious music education ahead. Here's his latest report supplementing the above promo clip: 

"Taylor spent a week at the Berklee College of Music's Guitar Sessions. 350 guitarists from around the world attended, 80 were asked to do a live audition for scholarships to attend the school or online programs. Taylor was the recipient of the single highest award offered. He is only a junior, so he doesn't actually find out if he was accepted to the school until the end of January, but it looks like trips to Boston are in our future...

His new band, THE CURRENT, is his trio plus the addition of Tomara Conrad, a sixteen year old singer from Denver. Last month, she was featured on the Rachel Ray show in NY in a sing off judged by Nick Lachey. She was brilliant, and won a nice prize package."

We're seeing a lot of the cool guitarist - hot white chick singer combination these days. 

Jeff Beck with Joss Stone, Imogen Heap & Imelda May
Joe Bonamassa with Beth Hart
Derek Trucks with Susan Tedeschi (spouse)
Daniel Lanois with Trixie Whitley

See, it's a trend-- and our young Taylor & Tomara are workin' that groove!
