ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rod Taylor, originally from Lubbock, Texas, has been playing music for more than 30 years both as a solo artist and with regional bands including The Rounders and currently The Rifters.

He has performed at many cowboy music and poetry gatherings around the country including: The Texas Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Alpine, the Arizona Cowboy Poets Gathering, Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival, and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City. His unique combination of being well versed in cowboy lore, traditional western music, as well as a working cowboy, enables him to bring an authenticity to the musical craft.

Rod started his cowboy career while in High School/College at both the C Bar and Philmont Ranches. Rod left Texas Tech to pursue the cowboy life and has worked at the Vermejo Park/WS, TO, UU Bar, and Little Horn Ranches. He currently cowboys on the Philmont Ranch which is owned and operated by the Boy Scout of America. Philmont has 300 horses, 250 cows, 100 burros and 100 buffalo on 137,000 acres. Rod is responsible for the cowherd and lends a hand with the additional livestock.

Starting in 1990, with release of the album "Riding Down the Canyon", Rod has continued to work on music projects that include the 1995 album "A Philmont Collection", the self titled Rifters initial release of mostly original tunes, and his latest album entitled "Here, There or Anywhere".

His artistic work also includes acting and has been in film projects that include The Missing (directed by Ron Howard), the Stephen Frears’ film Hi - Lo Country, the Angel Maker Episode of Lazarus Man, and other projects from Tish Honojosa’s CMT music video, to television commercials, to PBS Documentaries.

Rod currently cowboys on the Philmont Ranch in New Mexico and lives with his wife Patty and has been active in coaching baseball and the Cimarron Maverick Club (that sponsors the Nation’s oldest open 4th of July Rodeo). Rod and Patty have two sons who also have added an artistic edge to their lives with one an accomplished sculptor and painter, and the other an accomplished musician and prolific songwriter.

Here, There or Anywhere
Rod Taylor creates a good look back to the early days of the cowboy in Here, There or Anywhere.
You'll find many of the old cowboy classics here like Blue Mountain, Jack Thorp's Chopo and
Colorado Trail. But Rod is a sure enough cowboy himself and you will find him singing some of
his own work of life in the saddle. It is like you are hearing Rod sing these songs around a campfire
along the Pecos with multi instrumentalist Don Richmond sitting in with fiddle, mandolin and banjo.
The CD offers a few surprises for more instruments and performers as well.
Over all a fine look at the days of the cowboy and the old West.

Darn Good Album
It has been too long since Rod did a solo album. The traditional cowboy songs flow so well and he has added some original material, some of which blends in so well it sounds like it has been sung around the campfires for years. Shows that he is truly a Lubbock boy as well with some more modern material, both original and a remake of Joe Ely's Indian Cowboy that is truly Rod's with his unique airy soft style.
