Taylor restarted his performing and recording career in 1993. At a South by Southwest Music Conference in Austin, Texas in 2001, Chip met singer and violinist Carrie Rodriguez, with whom he performed and recorded Americana music for several years. The duo recorded Let's Leave This Town in 2002. They released The Trouble With Humans the following year and the critically acclaimed Red Dog Tracks in 2005. Each has since released successful solo albums. Taylor's double-CD Unglorious Hallelujah/Red Red Rose, his first solo album in five years, was quickly hailed as "a future classic" by Sonic Magazine, whose reviewer declared: "This is the best we've heard from Chip Taylor so far." Rodriguez's solo album, Seven Angels on a Bicycle, was released in August 2006. In late 2006 and early 2007, Rodriguez toured on her own but continued to perform with Taylor from time to time

Taylor has performed with alt-country singer-songwriter Robbie Fulks, playing bass for Fulks's January 2004 date at Double Door in Chicago. Taylor has done a series of shows with guitarist John Platania and the young singer/fiddler Kendel Carson, and he produced both their 2007 albums.

Shaggy utilized "Angel of the Morning" as the basis for his hit "Angel" in 2001.

Chip Taylor's album "Yonkers, NY" was a 2011 nominee for a Grammy Award for best recording package, but lost to "Brothers" by The Black Keys.




The Casbah

The Casbah (located at the corners of King St West & Queen St North in the Central Neighbourhood of downtown Hamilton Ontario) opened it’s doors in January 2001. The debut event was none other than Seminal Pixies frontman Frank Black and his band the Catholics. The sold out concert was presented by the venue, and in association with a new local promoter who would one day become a more significant component to the Casbah as a live music club.
