In high school, Dudley Taft co-founded "Space Antelope" with Trey Anasatasio (of Phish) playing many school events. After stints in Seattle bands Sweet Water and Second Coming, Taft embraced the blues, recognizing it as the foundation of all the great 1970s rock he was exposed to as a teenager. The more investigating he did, the more he realized that the blues was his true musical home. In 2010 Dudley produced the "Left For Dead." A little Texas blues, a hint of Mississippi Delta, seventies hard rock, and grunge, resulting in - the "Seattle blues!" Bonus track, a romp through Led Zep's "When the Levee Breaks."
