Livingston Taylor picked up his first guitar at the age of 13, which began a 50-year career that has encompassed performance, songwriting, and teaching. Born in Boston and raised in North Carolina, Livingston is the fourth child in a very musical family that includes Alex, James, Kate, and Hugh. Livingston recorded his first record at the age of 18 and has continued to create well crafted, introspective, and original songs that have earned him listeners worldwide.
From top-40 hits “I Will Be in Love with You” and “I’ll Come Running,” to “I Can Dream of You” and “Boatman,” the last two recorded by his brother James, Livingston’s creative output has continued unabated. His musical knowledge has inspired a varied repertoire, and he is equally at home with a range of musical genres—folk, pop, gospel, jazz—and from upbeat storytelling and touching ballads to full orchestra performances.
Livingston is a full professor at Berklee College of Music, where he has taught a Stage Performance course since 1989. He teaches young artists invaluable lessons learned over the course of an extensive career on the road; the course is consistently voted the most popular at the College. His high-selling book, Stage Performance, released in 2011 offers those lessons to anyone who is interested in elevating their presentation standards to professional standards.
Livingston's 50th year of making music was celebrated by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, both declaring January 18, 2017 "Livingston Taylor Day".
Austin songwriter Rebecca Loebe has spent the past ten years on the road, mesmerizing audiences across the US, Europe, The UK, and Japan with her "absolutely stunning voice" (- Atlanta Journal-Constitution) and award-winning original songs.
In the past twelve months, she has signed two record deals (for her next solo album and with a newly formed trio) and been selected as a 2019 grant recipient by Black Fret, a prestigious arts organization that aims to incubate and elevate Austin talent. After a decade on the road - thousands of shows, millions of miles, countless cups of gas station coffee - she is officially the worst kept secret of the indie songwriter scene.
What many people don't know about Rebecca is that before she quit her job to pursue music, she got a degree in audio engineering and worked at recording studios full-time. In fact, it was her ability in the studio that enabled her to record her first album, by working at a local studio in between gigs and bartering her hours for time in the studio.
Rebecca is currently back in the studio working on her fifth full length album, which will be released with the full support of Blue Corn Music in February 2019. Between now and then you can catch her at a handful of acoustic concerts where she will be premiering new songs and sharing stories from her adventures around the world.
