First of all, you might be interested to learn that James’ three siblings, Kate, Livingston and Alex (the last of whom died more than twenty years ago) were also recording artists. Perhaps the most successful of the three is Livingston, who has released almost 20 albums (though quite a few of them are compilations). To name a few of them: Over the Rainbow, Three Way Mirror and There You Are Again. The last of Livingston‘s albums was released in 2014 and titled Blue Sky. However, neither the last one nor any other of Livingston‘s albums were as popular as his brothers greatest records and Livingston‘s fortune does not even come close to James Taylor net worth.
Although James‘s has been recording since the 1960s, a breakthrough in his professional career came up in the early 1970s, as his album Sweet Baby James was released. It charted at No. 3 in both the United States and Canada, while in the United Kingdom it occupied a bit lower, but still an honorable 6th position. Sweet Baby James received 3 x Platinum certification from the Recording Industries Association of America and significantly increased James Taylor net worth. Over the years that followed the musician released an impressive number of platinum albums, such as Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon, In the Pocket, Dad Loves His Work, Never Die Young and so on.
But following the release of October Road more than ten years ago, little was heard from James or about him. But recently, after a long break, the musician has started creating again. In fact, during the interview for Here and Now the star has stated that in a certain sense he has never stopped: „In a sense I’m always making music. I’m constantly making little musical recordings on my phone or on a little voice recorder I carry with me so I can remember these little pieces of music that eventually becomes songs“. However, recoding little pieces of music in your phone is not exactly the same as getting down to serious work, like writing the music, lyrics and putting it all together. According to the musician it was exactly this nearly forgotten process, which used to be an essential part of his daily life, that made him curious and encouraged to return to the music industry. Before This World, which was released this year, has already topped US charts and is expected to increase James Taylor net worth significantly.
