Chris Taylor Obituary, Death – It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that our band’s extraordinarily talented guitarist, keyboardist, and accordion player Chris Taylor has made the decision to part ways with the group. It was on June 9, 2021, when Chris opened the case of his Gretsch guitar on Dave’s deck and started playing those classic tones that we realized he was the ideal candidate for the position.
Soon after that, we came to the conclusion that he was also an accomplished keyboard player and accordion player, both of which contributed significantly to the overall tone of In Lieu of Flowers. Chris had been a part of our team ever since we first started. Chris can be heard throughout our debut album, weaving his magic through and around Ernie’s playing of the violin and mandolin, and providing as a beautiful compliment to Jim’s playing of the pedal steel guitar.
Both of these performances can be found on our album. We are all sending him our best wishes because he is such a beautiful glittering star, and because he brought such brilliance to the table. We have started holding interviews with potential new guitarists, and we will keep you updated on who joins the band next. In the meantime, though, we will miss Chris, and we wish him and his future pursuits the best of luck.
