The Floyd Effect - Dale Taylor

Dale often wandered around as a child listening to his mum's Delicate Sound Of Thunder, The Wall and Division Bell CDs. He received his first guitar when he was ten and, while he was initially self-taught, we should probably be grateful that someone then forced him to undergo numerous years of guitar lessons.

Throughout his teenage years, he was obsessed with playing and singing, gigging in several groups until he left school to pursue his dream. He has always been most heavily influenced by David Gilmour and Pink Floyd and, despite his mum's obvious leanings toward the later Pink Floyd albums, he found himself captivated with Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here and Meddle.

Now an experienced frontman, Dale brings a huge experience of touring and performing to The Floyd Effect, but still finds time for other projects. He has released two albums as Woodley Taylor - a studio debut and a 'Live In The Studio' album - and is planning to write and release a third in the near future.

Meanwhile, he says that, "I have waited years for an opening in a Pink Floyd show. It has always been my dream to play and sing their timeless works on this scale, and I couldn't ask for a better group of musicians than The Floyd Effect to make it come true".
