tbbHopefully, one of these years, songwriter Jordan Taylor will keep his enigmatic Two Beat Band in working fashion for an extended stretch of time. It seems every time he teases with a small string of brilliant performances or a stunning new alt-country recording, he goes back off the radar for months. He’s given hints that he and his first-class backing players will keep their heads above ground in 2014 by playing a handful shows across Minnesota and planning for a new album this summer, following up last year’s self-titled EP. Nate Case joins him on guitar along with Kyle Keegan on drums and Steve Garrington on bass.
