James Taylor

I’ve been listening to the music of James Taylor recently on Pandora Radio. Surprisingly, the James Taylor station I’ve created is one of my favorites; I can play it on and on, days without end, amen. This newly found appreciation of JT comes at the tail end of an interest in what I call “melodic rock” (a playlist on my ipod). Deathcab for Cutie were the initial group that started this playlist, and it’s expanded to the likes of Coldplay, The Low Anthem, Ray LaMontagne, and Dave Matthews, to give you a flavor of what’s spinnin’ round in my head. Now with James Taylor, I’m reaching back in time and appreciating his smooth sounds.

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy, as the Executive Director of the Wrangell Mountain Center. When not in McCarthy, you'll typically find me in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, writing and working with local activists. My primary writing project right now is a novel set in remote bush Alaska, of the magical realism genre wherein an earnest and independent young woman finds a mysterious radio belonging to her grandmother, a device that has paranormal bandwidth and a disturbing ability to mess with one's mental stability.

    1. Yeah. Ben Gibbard in a different suite of clothes, all wrapped up in a little 80s New Wave. I dig it, friend. I dig.

      Do you own any of their music?


  1. The new Ray Lamontagne album is spectacular. James Taylor sounds like my childhood, and his greatest hits album is maybe my favorite piece of vinyl, ever. Cheers! –rmg
