Curley Taylor's Musical Journey


Curley Taylor was born and raised in Sun Set Louisiana and has been around music all of his life. At the age of 16 Curley started playing drums in his father's band, Jude Taylor & His Burning Flames, a band deep in Louisiana Blues, Soul and Zydeco. By age of 25, Curley had played drums with some of Louisiana's musical legends, including: CC Adcock, Steve Riley, John Hart, "L'il" Bob and the Lollipops, and his uncle’s, "L'il" Buck Senegal and Wayne "Blue" Burns. He toured with CJ Chenier, son of the "King of Zydeco" Clifton Chenier. His experience as a drummer emblazoned in Curley the fundamental importance of the lock down rhythm dancers crave. At 25 Curley hit the road with his own band “Zydeco Trouble” delivering Zydeco with a rich Gospel, Soul, Hip Hop-tinged sound.
In 2003 Curley was ready to make the move and launch his own band - Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble. His debut CD "Country Boy" was released to rave reviews. Artists familiar with Zydeco compared Curley's music to that of the late, great Beau Jocque. "It's a high compliment," Curley replied, "but Country Boy is only the start." Curley has been playing, touring and recording ever since. Since his debut CD, Curley has released six more CDs of original music, making him one of the most prolific composers in Zydeco. His latest project "Rise Up" was released in 2018.
Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble tour extensively throughout the US, playing festivals and clubs from New York to San Diego and from Florida to Seattle. Often playing to audiences who have never heard Zydeco music before, they make fans wherever they go. They've played major festivals including Rhythm and Roots in Ninigret RI, the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland OR and Jazz Fest in New Orleans. When at home in Louisiana, you can find Curley in the studio working on his latest CD, or playing in one of the local clubs around the Lafayette/Opelousas area to the delight of his hometown fans.
His bluesy, soulful vocals and the band's hard driving Zydeco beat blend to create high-energy dance music for all audiences. Curley's music is true to its roots in Zydeco and Blues, but contemporary enough to appeal to a broad range of music lovers.
