James Taylor will bring a catalog that spans more than 40 years to the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys this week.
The singer songwriter plays the Summer Concert Series Wednesday, July 13.
“His warm baritone is among the most recognized voices in popular music and his distinctive style of guitar-playing has been enormously influential,” according to Taylor’s online biography. “He has sold over 100 million albums throughout his career, beginning in 1968 when he was signed to The Beatles’ Apple Records. In 1971, Taylor was featured on the cover of Time magazine, heralded as the harbinger of the singer-songwriter era. His voice has been a constant in a changing world for his first generation of fans and their children.”
Following a 13-year hiatus in studio albums, Taylor released his 17th collection, “Before This World,” in June 2015.
“Taylor’s songs have had a profound influence on songwriters and music lovers from all walks of life: ‘Fire and Rain,’ ‘Country Road,’ ‘Something in the Way She Moves,’ ‘Mexico,’ ‘Shower the People,’ ‘Your Smiling Face,’ ‘Carolina In My Mind,’ ‘Sweet Baby James,’ ‘Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight,’ ‘You Can Close Your Eyes,’ ‘Walking Man,’ ‘Never Die Young,’ ‘Shed a Little Light,’ ‘Copperline,’ ‘Enough to be On Your Way,’ ‘Caroline I See You,’ and many more,” according to the bio. “He has earned 40 gold, platinum, and multi-platinum awards and five Grammy Awards for a catalog that runs from ‘James Taylor’ (1968) and ‘Sweet Baby James’ (1970) to ‘Hourglass’ (1997) and ‘October Road (2002).’”
The Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys is located behind Harveys Lake Tahoe at the corner of Stateline Avenue and U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
