I know it’s been a long time and i hope you’re all enjoying the summertime and had a good year so far. Neil has been out of the lime-light for a bit and therefor so has this blog. But now we finally have some news and hope we have you all on board still supporting Neil.
As you probably already noticed (or not) Neil has a new single release called “Paper Kite”. He also launched a brand new website: www.neiltaylor.net
But best to let him talk about it the single and his plans himself:
Sorry it’s been a while. I have been very busy writing a library album for Chapel Of Rock..It’s called Shine A Light most of the songs have melody & lyrics which has really helped me start writing songs again since Steve’s passing. Some of these songs will make my new album release which will be next year..Early spring!
Paper Kite as you may have noticed is now out..The official release date is 10th August due to the radio campaign but is now available on iTunes etc. Paper Kite has moved many people, which is fantastic. It’s a tribute to all loved ones lost & all the broken hearts left behind & of course Steve Torch, I started this song with him but never got to finish it with him as he became too ill.
Back in 2013/14 we started to write Paper Kite. At this time it was called Used To Be but we didn’t like the chorus. Steve suggested we send it to my friend Stefan Trenker to have a go at writing a new chorus. It must of been at least a year later when Stefan called sent me his chorus idea..When i listened to what he had done i thought there was really something in it. I finished Stefan’s chorus idea & wrote another verse..This is where the song changed from a love song to something different & special, I did sing it to Steve while he was sleeping in his last days..I will never know if he was listening or not but i think he would’ve approved.
There is only one show so far this year due to much writing music for Chapel Of Rock, which keeps me very busy. There will be a tour in Austria next May & there will be a few shows in Bavaria Germany during the tour.
I’m hoping Paper Kite opens a few doors & you all will be seeing more of me.
