Ben Taylor has recently completed work on his new studio album, Listening (Sun Pedal Recordings/ILG), set for release in August 2012. This is Taylor's first album of new music in four years, following his critically acclaimed 2008 release The Legend Of Kung Folk - Part 1 (the Killing Bite). Hear an exclusive track, Worlds Are Made Of Paper, from the album now at AOL Spinner. Full track list and release date information forthcoming.

Ben's latest effort, Listening, seamlessly merges the sounds and styles of folk, pop, soul, urban, reggae and country/western, running the gamut from sonically spacious acoustic numbers to multi-layered vocals and fresh beats. The honesty of Ben's music is led by what is often described as his tuneful and expressive voice, the kind of voice that makes its impact with the smallest turn of a whispered phrase.

Ben Taylor's memorable melodies, immaculate acoustic guitar playing and insightful, honest lyrics have been captivating fans since the moment he embarked on this journey ten years ago. Being the son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, music has always played a central role in Ben's life. His wit and skill as a singer-songwriter showcases an artist who is comfortable in both his own skin and with his impressive musical legacy. His acclaimed previous releases comprise his debut album 2003's Famous Among The Barns, 2005's Another Run Around The Sun, and 2008's The Legend of Kung Folk, Part 1 (The Killing Bite). Highlights from his previous albums include appearances on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, The CBS Early Show, Last Call with Carson Daly and Howard Stern. Ben also made his acting debut with a recurring role on NBC's American Dreams and has appeared in the pages of People Magazine, Vogue and even on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. His reviews and raves have been steady for over a decade now with more to come. Ben Taylor has previously toured with Sheryl Crow, Blues Traveler and Ziggy Marley among others.

Ben Taylor will preview this new music at a one-off show at New York City's City Winery on May 17th 8:30 PM, tickets available now:
