Charlie Rockwood Farr and Lynne Taylor are singer songwriters and multi-instrumentalists who first met while on tour with Alt-country-rock band, Liz Frame and the Kickers in 2011. They went on to work together in the Lynne Taylor Band and Halo and the Harlots, finally landing in 2018 as Rockwood Taylor, an edgy Americana duo that calls on a wide range of influences from Woody Guthrie, John Prine, Steve Earle and Townes Van Zandt, to Nina Simone, Patsy Cline, Fiona Apple and Patti Smith. The result is a collection of rootsy, gutsy, honest songs that transcend boundaries, taking the listener on a gritty journey through our collective human experience. Based in Massachusetts, they have toured throughout the Northeast US as far west as Ohio, and as far south as North Carolina. They released their first EP, Finding Home, in April 2019, which was nominated for Album of the Year by the New England Music Awards.
