Taylor’s Awesome Grandpa on The Lester The Nightfly Radio Show

The LTNF Interview | Part 2

Many of the influences behind Taylor’s own music, and the songs on his playlist this week, can be traced back to his dad and grandad. Grandpa has a big stereo system in the basement. Taylor recalled in this part two of our interview series, sitting with his grandfather surrounded by CDs and vinyl spending hours listening, chatting, exploring music of all kinds I love this picture!!! The new generation being informed on worthwhile music from the elders. Dads/ Grandads. Moms and Grandmums.

And the legacy of Taylor’s Awesome Grandpa, today, reaches… you. When you listen to this show and Episode One with Taylor Watkins, you gain the knowledge of another generation. Well done you!

Here’s to Taylor’s Awesome Grandpa, this week on Lester the Nightfly.

About Watkins

Click here to read an eye-opening article written by Talor as published in CanvasRebel Magazine.

“With a desire to open the mind of the modern music scene, Watkins brings flavors of Post-Grunge and Alternative Rock with a Psychedelic-Pop attitude. Watkins, has created a grassroots following in his travels across the country, known for his acoustic guitar picking and soul-packed vocal performance. His lyrics showcase the spiritual journey taken during the writing process, distilled through years of living on the road. From Teton Valley to the Blue Ridge Mountains, Watkins is bringing (what he calls) ‘Psychedelic Southern’ to the masses. Sophomore album Unbiased Eyes showcases these universal reflections in songs such as Sad Happy and Lovely Scares.”
