Two years after the release of their debut album BLUE ZERO ONE with Frankfurt-based record label INFRAcom!, Taxi return with a new album: -THE ACCESSORY.

"You feel your way from day to day
It’s just that life gets in the way”

Twelve unique songs with depth, resonance, and a message. Taxi continue to set the benchmark in creative modern - song composition.

”There’s a window -sitting here...
My hand stretched out- I fall asleep
For miles and miles through deep emotion
I see myself, I see no lies”

The Accessory takes the listener on a journey through love, despair, hope, reality, and dreams.
Taxi exploit music styles from Techno and House to R&B and Blues and create a varied and emotional musical landscape

"And so you ask me for my reasons
Well I am yours but those are mine”

Taxi say: "The most important thing is the song. We want the tunes to stand on their own as acapella versions. Musical styles come and go but a song -is a song.

"We’ve focussed on the lyrics and the melodies to ensure we deliver songs that -- hopefully -- stand the test of time.

"The Accessory has been a positive experience for everyone involved in the project. We’ve had help, support, and encouragement from many people - and this is reflected in the final result.”

"Monday mornin’ and I think I’ll stay in bed
Life looks good with my eyes shut
Just sleeping - and dreaming - of you inside my head”


Taxi is producers Paul Cullen and Simon Lovejoy with studio vocalist Joel.

The band met in the summer of 1996 in Norwich, England. The band’s first album -Chocolate was an independent release snapped up by Frankfurt label INFRAcom!

A year after signing with INFRAcom!, Taxi released Blue Zero One which received critical acclaim worldwide. The album was licensed to Inpartmaint in Japan.

Taxi’s music has appeared on dozens of compilations in more than 11 countries around the globe and featured on several television commercials. The recent artistic partnership with Absolut Vodka underlines the band’s position as: "one to watch”.

”Tell me what to do with this confusion
You fool me the movement into a simple space
All day - this way - my life”


Studio vocalist Jo Laundy was first spotted by producer Paul Cullen in a Norwich pub. Telephone numbers were written on cigarette packets and promptly lost.

Three months later, they met again on a bus. This time Paul persuaded Jo to do some singing - and the first two pieces of the puzzle were in place.

A year later, Simon Lovejoy was visiting Norwich. A mutual friend suggested a meeting of minds and the final piece of the creative puzzle was in place.
