Wandering Roots 

"I've really enjoyed listening to this band." - José Feliciano



Shawn Taylor & Wandering Roots


ST & WR cultivate a robust mixture of organic sounds and grooves, with the seeds of Taylor’s original songs. It’s music with wandering roots. Gritty roots. Gritty vocals. Dancing fingers on strings. Barn burning flat picking. Rich vocal harmonies. Wailing harp. Other worldly fiddle. World inspired cajon beats. Driving pocket bass. And songs. Fresh, new songs, with deep, ol’ roots.
