James Taylor (1948) has been active as a singer, guitarist and songwriter since the late Sixties. Many - rightfully - regard him as the "father" of the singer-songwriter genre gat became popular in the early Seventies. His introspective songs, virtuoso acoustic guitar playing and warm voice immediately connected with an audience. This was reflected in a stream of many hit singles and albums. Among his most famous hits are "Fire and Rain", "You've Got a Friend", "Carolina In My Mind", "Handy Man", "Sweet Baby James" en "Little More Time with You". While his most famous songs may have been released over forty years ago, his career has everything but stagnated. He continuous to release new albums, and his live concerts are among the most successful and appreciated in the world.

The vault is open!

Last Friday it was announced that over the months James will be digging deep into his personal archives to share video and audio gems via his official James Taylor YouTube channel. In the coming weeks James will be sharing videos from his 1970 BBC 'In Concert' TV special. The first video from that show, in which James sings the Beatles 'With A Little Help From My Friends', is now available.

The announcement is not surprising after a year in which James has been very active on social media, already sharing many unique videos from performances from throughout his career.
