Dark Horse Flyer is a rock band based from South Florida and is comprised of 6 members. Collectively they have shared the stage with such notable artists as; Ernest Ranglin, Buster Poindexter, Etta James, Temptations, Kansas, Chuck Berry, and The Gin Blossoms. Breakaway is a 9-song album of masterfully played brawny riff rock and detached cool jazzy rock.

As a Boca Raton resident and bassist for the band, Richard Taylor has forged his own artistic conception, successfully creating basslines that are stand-alone musical statements. The combination of his rich understanding of music theory and chemistry of the chords, scales, and passing tones, makes him an invaluable member of Dark Horse Flyer.

Here is some info on the band and their music below.
