Beginning in 1999, Will Taylor implemented a new idea after brainstorming with other Austin musicians. Taylor began collaborating with both local and nationally renowned artists, rearranging their known material, bringing in his own crew of seasoned jazz and contemporary roots musicians to play, and moving from the traditional smoky club scene to pristine performance settings.
Since then Will Taylor and Strings Attached has presented over 50 concert collaborations to more than 12,000 audience members. In 2006, over 1600 Beatles fans saw Strings Attached 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 they’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, Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez.
