Taylor McFerrin

On Brainfeeder

Heavy anticipation has been brewing for quite some time as Brooklyn based producer, composer, pianist, DJ and live musician Taylor McFerrin is set to release his first full length LP, Early Riser in June 2014 on Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder record label.

Taylor's musical style is equally influenced by the legends of 60's / 70's Soul, the kings of the Modern Beat Generation, Golden Era hip hop, free form jazz and electronic music.  By playing all of the instruments on his productions, while also relying heavily on sampling and chopping up his live takes, he has found a sound that seamlessly bridges myriad musical worlds that draws the listener into a constantly shifting beautiful audio soundscape.

By sustaining major buzz in the Future Soul scene through his first EP, Broken Vibes (featuring the acclaimed single, "Place in My Heart"), Taylor has toured worldwide as a one man show and has played major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, The Big Chill, and Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival.  In his home base of New York City, he has performed at such legendary venues as The Apollo, The Blue Note, Radio City Music Hall and The Lincoln Jazz Center opening up for artists such as Erykah Badu, The Roots, Nas, Talib Kweli and Robert Glasper

In addition to producing and performing, Taylor has served as the Head Instructor of the pioneering Beat Rockers program over the past 4 years teaching beatboxing and musical self-expression to students who are blind and/or have multiple disabilities at the Lavelle School for the Blind in the Bronx.

Taylor's ability to create and evolve musically by drawing inspiration from all corners of his life translates into a sound that evokes feeling and an innovative live set that is equal parts wonderment and musical dexterity.
