Great American Taxi marks its sixth year as one of the best-known headliners on the Americana music scene with a new release, "Paradise Lost," produced by critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Todd Snider. The band also enlisted master folk musicians Tim O'Brien, Barry Sless, and Elizabeth Cook to tackle songs about working class, blue-collar issues while maintaining Taxi's signature upbeat, country, bluegrass, rock-infused, Americana-without-borders feel.
The 12 tracks on "Paradise Lost" include a couple of reflective ballads, a sing-along or two, and some rockers that will make you want to get up and shake your money-maker. Great American Taxi, along with their friend and producer Todd Snider, deliver a collection of what keyboardist/singer and album executive producer Chad Staehly calls "electric folk music for our times." "Paradise Lost" is an ode to the American Dream, often times forsaken but always there to be rediscovered.
