Steve Taylor Has Recorded A New Album

November 22nd, 2011: Proving that Sock Heaven has its finger on the pulse of Steve's music career, here is a four-month-old BeliefNet interview with Peter Furler in which he reveals that Steve has sung lead vocals on an album to be released. The other members of the group are Peter, John Mark Painter, and Jimmy Abegg, and Peter refers to the group as Steve Taylor and Some Other Band. Thanks go to Ben Newsum for being our crack research staff.

Peter Furler: I was approached by Steve Taylor. We've written over a hundred songs together for the Newsboys. He knew I had a bunch of stuff left over, stuff that hadn't made it on to other records. So he came and said, "What are you going to do with it?" And I said, "I don't know? What do you want to do?" He goes, "Maybe we should do something" and I said, "Well I'll do something as long as I don't have to sing because I don't want to do a solo record. If you sing, we'll do it." So he goes, "Okay." We went in the studio and put a band together. It was Jimmy Abegg on guitar, John Painter on bass, myself just as the drummer and Steve as the lead singer. We made a record. It's not out yet. It's brilliant. It's a fantastic record and it's hopefully coming out this year or early next year. It got put on hold because of Steve (directing) the Blue Like Jazz movie.

Site Update

August 1st, 2011: Sadly, there's a new item in the Archived Web Sites section of this site. Andrew D. Taylor first posted QRSTUV, The Quantitative Roland Stephen Taylor Ubiquitous Volume, to Usenet in late 1994, making it the first Steve Taylor Internet resource. It later morphed into a web site which disappeared from the Internet in the last few months. It is now archived here.
