The Hot Chip frontman strips things back for an intimate performance of just piano and voice
You know Alexis Taylor as the frontman for UK electropop group Hot Chip – but did you know that he is also a solo singer-songwriter? His third solo record Piano, released last year, sets aside pop affectations completely to focus on just piano and voice. It is a sombre, delicate collection of songs written in tribute to his friends who have passed away.
In his Melbourne Festival appearance, Taylor has chosen to perform four intimate shows in the Melbourne Recital Centre's Salon rather than one large show. He'll play songs from Piano, as well as a few reinterpretations of his own writing and songs by other artists.
