Step back to the sounds of the Twisted Wheel, Blackpool Mecca, Golden Torch and Wigan Casino. The Signatures give a full set of passion and energy guaranteeing to get the audience “Out on the floor”. The band put their own expression to many classic Northern Soul numbers creating a true balance between authentic and modern in sound.
STEFAN TAYLOR sings with passion direct from the soul with an amazing vocal range. Since 2016 Stefan has been appearing as regular frontman with the UK’s No 1 Northern Soul Band The Signatures.
He has worked alongside American legends such as Tommy Hunt, Dean Parrish, Brenda Holloway, Nolan Porter, Eddie Holman, Tobi Legend, Sidney Barnes, Pat Lewis, Ruby Andrews, The Flirtations & Bobby Brooks Wilson, the son of Jackie Wilson plus the UK’s one and only Northern Soul Legend Lorraine Silver.
She is one of the featured artists on a CD compilation ‘Ultimate Northern Soul, The Classics‘ that recently entered the Top 50 Album charts with her record ‘Lost Summer Love’
Northern soul legend LORRAINE SILVER recorded “Lost Summer Love” when she was 13 years old in 1965. 54 years later she went into the recording studios with legendary record producer IAN LEVINE to record her follow up single ‘STANDING AT THE INTERSECTION’‘BEST TIME OF MY LIFE’, two songs that were written especially for her after Ian saw her perform at the ‘Northern Soul Survivors Weekend’.
Lorraine was invited to appear for Children In Need on TONY BLACKBURN’S BIG SOUL NIGHT OUT 2017.
Thanks to legendary Northern Soul DJ RUSS WINSTANLEY the single Lorraine recorded for PYE RECORDS in 1965 ‘LOST SUMMER LOVE’ became an iconic track at the legendary WIGAN CASINO in the 70’s without her knowledge. Due to high public demand the single was re-released on Casino Classics label and sold in excess of 30,000 copies. The track was listed in ‘Blues & Soul ‘ Magazine in 1987 as one of the top 10 Northern Soul records of all time.
In 2004 she recorded a brand new album of Northern Soul anthems ‘The Northern Soul Sessions’ which still sells well on download today under the new title ‘Northern Soul Diva’. This includes her re-recordings of classic track ‘LOST SUMMER LOVE’ her follow up single ‘THE HAPPY FACES’ and her versions of some Northern Soul classics including ‘LANDSLIDE ‘ & the Burt BacharachHal David penned ‘LONG AFTER TONIGHT IS ALL OVER‘.
