Samuel Taylor’s music career began in his teens as the front man and co-songwriter of Sheffield band Dead like Harry. The band made an impact on the UK live scene. Their sound was described as “the Steel City’s answer to Fleetwood Mac” and they went on to sell over 5000 copies of their 2010 album, ‘Know The Joy of Good Living’.
After the band amicably parted ways, Samuel began recording his debut solo EP, ‘Some Nobody to Me’. The release came in 2013, collaborating with members of the British Blues-Rock Band, The Temperance Movement (Damon Wilson and Luke Potashnick). ‘Some Nobody to Me’ received BBC Radio 2 support from Steve Lamacq and Graham Norton. The single was also playlisted on 14 regional stations.
