About Chip Taylor
The master of the soul serenade, he's got the look and delivery of Jimmy Reed and the same finesse and knowledge in the blues as Kenny Burrell does in jazz. He was born February 10th, 1943 in New Braunfels, Texas and moved to Austin in 1969. The influence of B.B. King, T-Bone Walker, and Freddie King is woven through Clarence's playing. He spent a lot of time with cousins Ponte "Guitar" Gonzales and Spot Burnette who were big players in the San Antonio area.
