Tar & Flowers is Taylor Hungerford. Taylor was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. At a young age, his parents relocated to Chatsworth, a small equestrian town on the outer rim of the valley. Chatsworth’s rich western history would affect Taylor in ways he was unaware of. Taylor’s interest in classic rock would lead him to different types of roots music. The delta blues fingerstylings of Skip James, the more modern fingerstyle of Leo Kottke, and nuanced slide of Ry Cooder would all help to craft Taylor’s style of acoustic folk picking. Taylor currently resides in the San Fernando Valley and can be found at any country show in Los Angeles.
