UK Artist of the Week: Eric Taylor Escudero

Brazilian-born Eric Taylor Escudero released his debut album We Were Young And It Was Morning in 2015—an utterly stunning collection of alternative-folk vignettes that definitely deserves your attention.

Escudero has recently released the free track “The Uncountable Colours Of The Sky” from the album, giving listeners outside of South America a chance to understand what his music is all about and what the album has to offer. The track is beautifully written and filled with sincere emotion and depth. It also features guest musician Ana Luísa Ramos on backing vocals who creates a wonderfully haunting and hypnotic effect within the song, complimenting Eric’s vocals perfectly.

We Were Young And It Was Morning reflects the themes of love, loss, nostalgia, and the difficulties of living modern city life. The album has a predominantly traditional folk feel and uses a diverse range of instruments such as the harmonica, mandolin, guitar, concertina, glockenspiel, and violin, allowing Eric to experiment with his arrangements that are both wistful and immersive.

Having already made a name for himself in Brazil, Eric is ready to let the rest of the world hear his music. Watch this space—we’ll be hearing more from Eric Taylor Escudero in the very near future.

We Were Young And It Was Morning is out now via City Lights Produces.
