Paul Taylor has just one question for his fans who have been Burnin’ for more since his last hit album in 2009: Are you ready for Prime Time?

The popular saxophonist sure is. A true contemporary urban jazz force of nature, Taylor has been on one of the most successful runs of his 15 year recording career, scoring his first #1 ever on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart with Ladies’ Choice (2007) and hitting #1 on the airplay charts with the title track from Burnin’. Fresh from kickin’ it up on tour these past few summers as part of the Gentlemen of the Night tours with fellow saxophonists Marion Meadows, Michael Lington and Warren Hill, Taylor is keeping things soulful, funky and innovative as ever on his sixth Peak Records album and debut release through new distributor Eone Entertainment Group. Paul’s in Prime Time mode with emotionally powerful 10 song collection of instrumentals and vocals which finds him vibing with a mix of old and new (and very funky) musical friends.

There are unique characteristics about Contemporary Guitarist/Vocalist Steve Oliver who is a West coast native. For most of his life, he kept his eye on the prize of becoming a well versed musician, composer and producer that creates music capturing various sounds from around the world.

With phenomenal capabilities of emulating and incorporating music styles from global genres with a mix of pop/rock/soul and contemporary, he has forged the edge on branding a fresh, new, crisp and chart topping sound as an unparalleled guitarist and signature vocalist. His radiating live performances have earned him countless standing ovations throughout the U.S. and world tour invites. Adding a technical force to his credit, Oliver is branded and acknowledged for designing a spectacular guitar synth for Carvin Guitars and has conducted training videos available online and demonstrations the NAMM show annually.
