'Stoned' and Soulful: Lewis Taylor

Lewis Taylor.
Lewis Taylor.

The British multi-instrumentalist Lewis Taylor is putting his own, very personal mark on neo-soul. Taylor plays all the instruments on Stoned, his first U.S. release, in addition to producing the record himself.

In 1996, Taylor was signed to Island Records on the strength of a demo tape. But after two records were welcomed more by critics than by consumers, he left the label to expand his version of soul through his own solo projects.
