House of Wills with Will Taylor and Strings Attached

Grammy-winning artists like Pearl Jam, Shawn Colvin, Eliza Gilkyson, and Bob Schneider and many others have trusted their music with the musicians of Strings Attached

It all started in 1999, when Taylor began collaborating with both local and nationally renowned artists, rearranging their known material, brought in his own crew of seasoned jazz and contemporary roots musicians to play, and moved the performance venue from the traditional smokey club scene to the beautiful interior and excellent acoustics of a church sanctuary.

Since then Will Taylor and Strings Attached has presented over 70 concert collaborations to over 12,000 audience members, countless more through four KGSR Live Radio broadcasts, and many appearances on KUT, KLBJ, KMFA and KOOP Radio. The the last few years they’ve expanded the repertoire to include Album/Band tribute shows where again the music is re-arranged and reinterpreted by Will and the ensemble. In 2006, over 1600 Beatles fans saw them re-create the entire White album. They’ve also presented the music of Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel and Jimi Hendrix. Guest artists we’ve collaborated with include: Shawn Colvin, Joe Ely,Dar Williams, James McMurtry, Fastball’s Tony Scalzo, Jimmy Dale Gilmore, Ruthie Foster, Abra Moore, Darden Smith, Tish Hinojosa, Sara Hickman, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Eliza Gilkyson, Slaid Cleaves, Suzi Stern, Beth Ulman, Kellye Gray, Patrice Pike, Guy Forsyth, Michael Fracasso, Jimmy LaFave, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Albert and Gage, Jon Dee Graham, John Aielli, Barbara K, Kimmie Rhodes, Ian Moore, and Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez.
