Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is throwing his weight behind a new, up-and-coming singer-songwriter named Taylor Greenwood, according to Audio Ink Radio. Grohl told a Los Angeles radio station, "The world could use a real artist like Taylor right about now. Definitely one to look out for. In this day and age where processed production can make anyone America's next big thing, Taylor Greenwood is so refreshing because she is the REAL DEAL. A truly amazing artist."
Grohl added, "Anyone who knows her voice knows the sound of raw, natural talent. I've seen her break a room down to pin-drop silence, and then make it explode...all in one song. With a voice that sounds as big in a smoky bar as it does on album..."
Grohl was allegedly won over by Greenwood after he caught a performance she gave in New York City.
He has reportedly been collaborating with her on new music, "fine tuning the arrangements and chord choices" for her songs, but it is not known when the public might get a chance to hear the results.
Grohl is known as a generous, approachable person, and his willingness to help another artist is completely in character for him, according to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins: "Dave's a good guy. He's one of the good guys, you know. He's not one of the f***in' a******s, so people like him, as they should. You know? He's one of the good guys."
Foo Fighters were recently tapped to play the Global Festival on September 29th in New York City's Central Park. The event, which will also feature Neil Young, the Black Keys and others, is being staged to help spread awareness of the global epidemic of poverty and raise funds to stop its spread.
The Global Festival is just one of three U.S. dates on Foo Fighters' schedule for the rest of 2012, including festivals in Pensacola, Florida and Atlanta in September.
