Curley Taylor’s bluesy, soulful vocals and his band’s hard driving Zydeco beat blend to create high-energy dance music for all audiences. Curley’s music is true to its roots in Louisiana Zydeco, but contemporary enough to appeal to a broad range of music lovers. With seven CDs of original music, Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble play their own style of Zydeco, infused with old school R&B, Blues and Southern Soul.
Louisiana native Curley Taylor has been around music all of his life. Born into a musical family, Curley started out playing drums in his father’s band, Jude Taylor and the Burning Flames, a band deep in Louisiana Blues, Soul and Zydeco. He went on to play with some of Louisiana’s musical legends. In his late twenties, Curley took up the accordion and began composing music in anticipation of starting his own band. In 2003, Curley Taylor launched his band, Zydeco Trouble, and their first CD “Country Boy” was released with rave reviews.
Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble tour extensively throughout the US, playing festivals and clubs from New York to San Diego and from Florida to Seattle, often playing to audiences who have never heard Zydeco music before. They make fans wherever they go. When at home in Louisiana, you can find Curley in the studio working on new music, or playing in one of the local clubs around the Lafayette/Opelousas area to the delight of his hometown fans.
