New Jersey-based Dennis Taylor delved into music full-time after a stint with the U.S. Air Force. A hookup with producer Fred McFarlane, facilitated by Robin S. (a mutual friend), got the ball rolling and spawned Taylor's breakthrough CD, Enough Is Enough (Dome Records). Produced by McFarlane and Darryl James, it marries R&B grooves in a contemporary package delivered by Taylor in a baritone that is reminiscent of the great lower registers of yesteryear as well as current heartthrobs Donnell Jones, Uncle Sam, and Will Downing. As is the case with many purveyors of adult R&B, Taylor is more loved overseas, specifically in the United Kingdom, where he has appeared in festivals and performed at London's Jazz Café. He works with James, a mix show DJ on New York's urban blaster WRKS.
