GUSTAFER YELLOWGOLD at Goat On a Boat
Goat on a Boat, Sag Harbor,
Taking a rest from the “normal” world of rock music, Taylor, a self-taught illustrator, began drawing what would become the Gustafer Yellowgold videos as a picture book project in winter 2004.
Gustafer himself is a friendly creature who came to Earth from the sun and is living out an explorer’s life in a slightly psychedelic version of the Minnesota woods.
Gustafer Yellowgold’s Show is a multi-media performance of live music, animated illustrations and storytelling. With its unique crossover appeal, the show has been the wild-card opening act for Wilco and The Polyphonic Spree. Gustafer has appeared off-Broadway in his own productions of Gustafer Yellowgold’s Mellow Sensation and Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock. In addition to touring nationally to arts centers, children’s museums, theaters and music venues, Gustafer has ventured abroad for performances in the U.K and even Korea!
The Gustafer Yellowgold Arts Enrichment Program was launched in 2011, bringing educational and creative experiences to children in libraries and schools.
Taylor’s other projects have included playing bass for The Autumn Defense (featuring John Stirratt and Pat Sansone from Wilco) and a recording project with Tony Award winning songwriter Duncan Sheik.
Morgan Taylor is married with two sons and lives in the Catskill Mountains. Morgan and his wife, singer/songwriter Rachel Loshak, founded Apple-Eye Productions for release of Gustafer Yellowgold projects
