I am currently writing and recording for a 2024 release of my 10th solo original album.
I am, as of now, half way there with 5 songs in the bag already, with a view of completing 10 tracks for the album. 2024 will see the accumulation of 27 years of music adventure, learning and formulation. This will be the 10th and very special original production. Both lyrically and musically. As with each album I produce, I improve and mature musically.
I have chosen an album title, namely ‘APOPHENIA’ an apt title to describe what is known in psychology as someone who see's links and connections in everything they see and hear, albeit a random type of schizophrenia. The album songs I have produced so far, have a fantastic feel to them and I am personally feeling great vibes and emotions upon listening back to them. Honest lyrics and stories. Lots of guitars (wall of sound) piano and harmonies. Great drums and atmospherics, all building into a professionally sounding original album of highs and lows.
Nothing gets recorded in my writing and production process unless it worthy. That is to say, if it doesn't feel authentic, emotional and if it doesn't stand up to scrutiny and repeated listening (when I've had a few glasses of wine or rum of an evening) then it goes in the bin. Only the best of my best makes it onto the album.
More news to come, as I get nearer to the new albums completion,
New Album 'Welcome To The Asylum' is in the works. Writing and recording has already begun and the release date will be announced soon. This is the ninth album instalment to be released by DLT. A running theme for the concept of the album is all about insanity, mental asylum, order and chaos. A guitar rock based sound. Album front art is here already.
As promised, every 23rd day in the month a new single will be released from the new album 'Superhero' coming 23.02.23. On the 23rd December 2022 another song will released both here and on my other sites too. This will include a film video and lyric video. This will be the third song released from the new album with the full album released in February 2023.
Big announcement ! Brand new song 'Superhero' Written, Produced and Performed by Damion Lee Taylor will be released tomorrow 23rd November 2022. At 12pm GMT ! Both film video and lyric video at the same time ! First song to be released from the new forthcoming 7th album of the same name coming 23.02.23.

Get ready for my new album in 2023, it is already half way there and sounds amazing. Been learning and realising a lot on this journey and it tells on the new forthcoming 7th album. Best ever ! Epic, Grand, Haunting, A ground shaker !
"The overall theme and lyrical feel for my 7th original, Written, Produced and Performed album release is as such. "You. Me. Magic. Heaven. Hell. God and the Devil. Angels and Demons. Love. Miguel de Unamuno. Chesterton. Spinoza. Life. Death. Spy craft. Haiti. Sufferance. Stand firm. Fight. Revolution. Protest. Sex. Time. Freedom. Dreams. Nightmares. The Moon and wild animals. Addiction. Passion. Kung-Fu. Shadows and Light. Radio. Wild horses. Invitation" These are not song titles but flavours of the whole album in general. There is no corruption, no magic tricks, little to no financial gain and no compromise in my music, merely a legacy, for after the time I have been given. I stand alone my friends. The real album title will be announced around Christmas. A proper 'A class' perfected radio ready retro rock and roll project. An extravaganza ! Seven in the bank but locked in the vault until release, I'm almost there. Aiming for 12 tracks when completed ! 23/02/23 Rock on"
