New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Steve Taylor & the Perfect Foil

January 2nd, 2014

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) Steve Taylor has been pushing the boundaries of music and film since the 1980s.  influenced by the Clash and the post-punk revolution of the 1970s, he released his debut EP in 1983. Steve Taylor came of age alongside other musical innovators like Talking Heads and Undercover; continuing forward he release several masterpieces—“Meltdown,” “I Predict 1990,” “Squint,” and “Liver,” recorded at Lancaster Mennonite High School. He helped reinvent the careers of Newsboys and Guardian; founded Squint Entertainment; shaped Sixpence None the Richer into a radio phenomenon; and directed the critically acclaimed film, “Blue Like Jazz.” Recently on New Tunes at 9, Steve Taylor spoke about his recent sabbatical from music, directing two films, and stepping back into music with a kickstarter campaign http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2128223578/steve-taylor-and-the-perfect-foil-new-album-really?ref=live to record a new project—and new song, “A Life Preserved.” (You can listen to the conversation with Steve Taylor here: https://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/)
