When he’s not performing as a member of Burlington-based acts The Peasant Dramatic and Dr. Ruckus, Middlebury College alumnus Taylor Smith goes it alone with his eponymous six-string, dealing in impassioned folk and blues tunes which arc from tales of heartbreak and longing into, often, the philosophical and vision-like. With “raspy vocals and a flair for vivid imagery and storytelling,” this is music that you’ll find woven into your thoughts long after you stop listening.
