Chucky Trading Co beats with the heart of Laurel Canyon, bringing timeless new folk-rock songs in a dynamic collaboration between songwriter CS Taber and producer Everett Young. The first CTC album, due December 2021, contains 15 heartfelt songs that explore love, life, and human nature. From the opening riff of "Grace" through the rattlesnake tambourine shake of “Tumbleweeds”, Chucky Trading Co delivers soulful arrangements, magical hooks, and images that touch your core.
CS Taber brings to his music a wide range of experiences and influences. From a childhood immersed in the spirits and rhythms of Central and West Africa to his coming of age in the rich acoustic traditions of Appalachia, Taber plays to a broad tapestry of musical textures. His songs combine the deceptive simplicity of folk, rock, and pop styles with the emotional depth and power of counterculture poets from the 60s to the present. With his songs, Taber sketches stories and images on themes both traditional and modern. Unhinged love (“Psychopath Cool”), the tragic limits of free will (“In the Dark”), mismatched hearts (“Sleepwalking through History”), death and questions of faith (“Peace With the Devil”) all weave together in this debut album from award-winning author and scholar, CS Taber. Taber currently lives in Manhattan, Kansas.
