James Taylor #musicmonday

An artist whose music I have deeply admired is fellow North Carolinian James Taylor (who is a native of Boston). During the 70s and 80s, James recorded hit singles with original songs like Fire And Rain, Shower The People, and Sweet Baby James as well as covers of classics by his friend Carole King, Marvin Gaye, and Buddy Holly.

James Taylor’s music has touched on topics such as drug addiction, friendship, and life growing up in North Carolina (hence his signature song, Carolina In My Mind). His influence can also be heard in the music of other artists like his son Ben Taylor, Babyface, and Taylor Swift.
