Max Taylor began his musical career after leaving school and joining forces with a drummer called Jamie Morrison. Together they paraded around London in a smashed up van, playing in as many different bands and outfits that you could possibly fit into a day. After a couple years of this he joined synthpop band Clor and quickly signed to Parlophone Records. They toured across Europe for a year and half, eventually crashing and splitting up not long after performing at the first Ibiza Rocks festival. Clor's only album now sits happily at no.1 in the NME’s 100 greatest albums you’ve never heard of chart.
Since the Clor split, Taylor went on to work with a number of different artists playing bass and backing vocals for live shows and also featuring on their records. Artists worked with include Roots Manuva, Tom Vek, CocknBullKid, Foxes, Groove Armada, Lily Allen, Melanie C, Rae Morris, The Plump DJ’s, The Dholl Foundation, Tom Robinson, Alex Metric and Fryars.
Since 2014, Max has toured extensively with the Lebanese-British musician Mika. It has been during this time that he started to develop a new artist persona called Creepy Neighbour. Taylor found confidence in his singing ability during Mika’s live shows and his new side project gave him a creative outlet to write down his thoughts and experiences whilst he toured. Eventually he wrote enough material to release an album.
Creepy Neighbour will now release a debut album with music videos shot in Athens, Greece. The videos are based around the concept of life within an apartment block. The first video from this series ‘For Real’ was released on October 22nd 2020.
