A long running member of the Nova Music collective, musician and vocalist Ralph Taylor was born and raised in Suffolk, where he first fused his blend of alternative pop with a loop pedal. Ralph now plays with his talented 4-piece-band, adding yet more edge to this already dynamic performer. He has always been drawn to a range of influences including indie, funk, hip-hop, jazz and folk, carefully blending genres into a distinctive layered style – never afraid to use electronic production alongside traditional songwriting techniques. Having played over 100 gigs in London, both with and with out his band, this 18 year old maverick is sure to go far!
