Michael Hedges described Taproot as an "autobiographical myth told in music". The album showed a departure from the solo guitar that made him famous and a move towards ensemble pieces. Taproot served to showcase Hedges' technical prowess and his ear for lush polyphony. The album's closing track is the lone vocal - a spellbinding setting of poem by e. e. cummings with soaring background vocals from his friends David Crosby and Graham Nash.
It received a nomination for Best New Age Album in the 1991 Grammy Awards and spent 22 weeks on the Billboard New Age Albums charts. Unavailable and out-of-print for some time now, it is Valley Entertainment's extreme pleasure to help keep the work of Michael's tragically short career alive.
