The frontman of electropop royalty Hot Chip sets aside the synths for a heartstring-strumming evening with a deeply personal bent.
The death of a close friend was the inspiration behind Taylor's solo album of last year, Piano. Comprising original works along with stripped-back versions of songs by Hot Chip and Taylor's side project About Group, the album is a tender, affecting recital for piano and voice, and a reminder that behind the musical pyrotechnics is a songwriter of rare ability. Join Taylor for a sensitive and soulful session on the keys in Melbourne Recital Centre's intimate Salon.
An album that is unlike anything he’s ever done.
His most straightforward and surprisingly personal effort.
