For the last three decades, David Sheils and Tim Godwin have been writing and performing music worldwide. When they both made San Diego their home, it seemed only fitting to put together something extraordinary. Never Die Young was born from two musicians' great respect for one another and their longing to continue to perform in venues across the US.
Having been influenced by the legendary style of James Taylor, it made even more sense to create a project that paid the ultimate respect to his music. Godwin has worked with such notable artists as Air Supply, Laura Brannigan, Shelby Lynne, Farmer, Tanya Tucker. He has been involved in numerous television projects and studio house bands.
Sheils has worked with various artists, including Chicago, Toto, Mary Travers, Tower of Power, Billy Vera, Pat Benetar, and written songs for Billy Preston and Freda Payne.
Joined by the wonderful vocals of Kylea Sheils and stellar San Diego musicians Jim Reeves on bass and Larry Grano on drums, Never Die Young will take you down that Country Road James Taylor wrote about so many years ago and into his living room with songs like the Secret of Life. A genuinely heartfelt and authentic interpretation of the music of James Taylor.
