James Taylor

1948 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Vocal

Genres: Pop, Rock

One of, if not the, most prominent singer-songwriters of the 1970s, James Taylor is revered for both his intimate, self-referential work and his intuitive covers, flipping through the songbooks of everyone from Burt Bacharach to Carole King. Early on, the musician's confessions about drug addiction and depression were made even more compelling when juxtaposed with his signature soft vocals and understated playing style. Over the past 40 years, Taylor has evolved from an introspective artist to a socially aware citizen, lending his talents to several political causes.
