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.
