Blending elements of neo- soul, old-time blues and folk, Lee has the guts of Ray LaMontagne and the soul of Marvin Gaye.
This guitar slinging aficionado has the street smarts of an urban swinger and the heart-bending soul of a gospel preacher, and is adept at blending a dark, bluesy Americana vibe with warm, acoustic soul where bits of old folk music and flamenco tunes swirl in and out of earshot.
Lee was born in Nashville and grew up in Florida where he captivated fans with his solo performances utilizing a looper and effects on his acoustic guitar. His High energy performances gained him notability.
Lee then formed a band in 2012 adding a horn and rhythm section to give his music more depth.
Lee self released his album ‘A Fiction,’ in the Summer of 2013. Being driven by Lee through his confessional lyrics, grandiose production values and virtuosic musical interplay, it lead Lee to go on to sign a record deal later that year. Lee is currently in the studio working on his debut studio album among several other side projects.
“Lee Tayler is producing material that is unlike any other singer songwriters – and consequently is beyond genre definition. Largely, it is one man and his faithful guitar – but with a voice like his, there really is no need for any other instrumentation. In truth it would only get in the way.”

I had so much fun doing a show Eric Stollsteimer at Caveman Vintage Music that I had to do a show with Erik Bailey the resident Guitar Expert
We spent about an hour talking about old Guitars and what make them sound so good, how to fix /not fix electric guitars being a Guitar tech on tour, being a Guitar tech when things are good and when things go bad.
Being a CTE Electronics teacher in my other life I even found topics to share with students like signal flow, trouble-shooting, and pickups, topics I can share with my students
We talked about Guitars and their stories.
It was a very interesting and informative show and I want to say THANK YOU to Erik for spending some time in the back room of Caveman Music in Chinatown, in Los Angeles California
BY the WAY Erik is looking for a Mastin GT-70 Electric Guitar in Black with Bigsby 1960’s vintage

For quite some time, among a certain crowd at least, the current thang has been playing straight in: going from guitar straight to tube amp, with nothing more than a good cable in between. Everything else you add to the chain, apparently, just further emasculates you. Pedals? That’s cheating—especially when they’re of the overdrive variety and used to achieve your lead sound. The real man (or manly-toned woman) cranks up the amp and uses the guitar’s volume to achieve clean to crunch to all-out lead, and that’s that. Anything more is just, well, less; it’s a crutch, and you’re not a “real player” if you indulge it.
The music your electric guitar makes has as much to do with the equipment you use as the way you play. Oftentimes, rock 'n' roll is musically simplistic but technologically complex. By combining multiple effects pedals, a rock guitarist can make even simple, conventional songs sound powerful and unique.
Jodylynn Talevi was born in Hartford, CT on November 8. She started playing guitar at 17, with the help of my brother Mitch. She studied voice and piano, also. In the late 80’s, she moved to Los Angeles to attend the Guitar Institute of America. She was a rock guitar player, until an animator asked her to write a song for an animated feature Secrets of the Lost Bayou that led her to compose in different genres, including jazz, modern jazz, country, pop, adult contemporary, and blues. Her strongest skill is writing lyrics and creating vivid characters. She writes from scripts, concepts, and the heart or broken heart. Jody moved back to Connecticut and collaborated with several musicians. Her songs are featured in the movies - After the Headlines and Sorry Mom I Won’t Be Coming Home. Listen to her songs at www.broadjam.com. Jody’s goal is to have songs featured in movies and TV commercials and to be recorded by other artists. She had two songs featured on www.womenofsubstance.com.
