JOHN FORD COLEY
There are songs you hear in your life that transport you to a certain time period or give you a special feeling. You associate those good times to the group that made them famous. Songs like “I’d Really Love To See You Tonight,” “It’s Sad To Belong” and “Just Tell Me You Love Me” have that kind of effect on people. Those songs and numerous others have made John Ford Coley a singing legend. He has spent decades touring, writing, recording, and producing.
John is most revered as half of the Grammy nominated duo England Dan and John Ford Coley. He continues with an active roster performing the platinum and gold record hits for audiences around the world. Classically trained on piano and an avid guitarist, John loves the craft and enjoys every audience he encounters. John is currently going into the studio to record new material for an acoustic album.
Over the years John has shared the stage with many of the music industry’s greatest legends including Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Chicago, Carole King, Bread, Led Zeppelin, Carly Simon, Air Supply, to name a few. John also undertook a number of acting roles in movies and TV in the 1980’s.
John will perform his best loved hits during this intimate concert along with other favourites from the era including Longer, Time In A Bottle, Make It With You, Leader Of The Band and Rhythm Of The Rain.
Julienne Taylor’s enchanting and captivating voice has raised comparisons with both Norah Jones and Eva Cassidy, but Julienne has her own unique and distinctive style infl uenced from her Scottish ancestry.
Julienne’s latest album, A Time For Love, a collection of original songs and new interpretations of love songs with a Celtic infl uence, has been accumulating impressive sales throughout S.E.Asia in 2009.
The musical journey of Julienne Taylor has been a long and winding road. Julienne left her home in Stirlingshire, Scotland as yet another teenage hopeful, convinced that fame and fortune were hers for the asking. Having arrived in London with dreams of sudden stardom she soon discovered it doesn’t quite happen like that, so she worked by day and wrote her songs by night while staying with friends in South London. Subsequent years working as a sound engineer and regularly singing six nights a week with blues and soul bands and as a backing singer for established artists helped Julienne along her path.
There will, no doubt be many more twists and turns on the long and winding road, but Julienne will take them all in her stride as her perseverance and talent are finally being rewarded with the growing success of her latest album and her live performances.
