Limited Autographed Art-Card Edition, available only whilst stocks last and exclusively from Propermusic.com.

Sean Taylor's latest album 'Flood and Burn' is made from eleven new songs and one cover. The songs touch on a variety of music genres.

'A Good Place To Die' is a cocktail of Townes Van Zandt and Bob Dylan. 'Bad Case Of The Blues' could never have been written without Tom Waits. 'Cruelty Of Man' is the jazz song and opening song 'Codeine Dreams' is the ambient beginning that sets the tone for everything that follows. Blues is served up with 'Run To The Water' and the album's title track. 'Flood and Burn' was recorded live in the studio. Both 'Troubadour' and 'Life Goes On' have been features of Sean's live set for the last couple of years and have grown with every gig. 'Until The End Of Time' is the happy song on the album. 'Heartbreak Hotel' is the one cover and features Eliza Gilkyson as guest. The closing track 'Better Man' is about the beauty and danger of being a musician. The song was written with special guest double bass legend Danny Thompson in mind. As always, Danny delivers.

Other special guests include Leonard Cohen's band leader Roscoe Beck (double bass), Hana Piranha (violin), Andre Moran (slide guitar), Ephraim Owens (Trumpet), Jaimee Harris (Backing vocals), Mike Hardwick (Pedal Steel), and Joe Morales (saxophone) ...

The album was recorded at Congress House Studios in Austin, Texas with producer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Ani Di Franco).
