Lead Singer Taylor Pie
will be in attendance

Written, produced and directed by Elizabeth Ahlstrom, NOBODY FAMOUS is the story of Susan Taylor and The Pozo-Seco Singers  — an American folk band that emerged during the 1960s. Comprised of Susan Taylor, Don Williams and Lofton Kline, the trio hailed out of Corpus Christi, TX, and when they signed with Columbia Records, their music went nationwide.

Susan Taylor is now best known as Taylor Pie, but prefers to simply be called “Pie.”  Set against the backdrop of the socially and politically volatile sixties, NOBODY FAMOUS traces the rise and fall of the folk/pop trio, told through the present tense recollections of Taylor Pie.  The group hit the national pop music charts in the mid-60s with hits like “Time,” “I Can Make It With You” and “I Believed It All.”

Singer/songwriter Taylor Pie and Dale Farmer will be present to introduce the film and lead the post-film Q & A. “Pie” delights audiences with her friendly, down-home persona – her smiling affability and lighthearted humor makes new friends everywhere she appears!

NOBODY FAMOUS  won Best Documentary at the Seattle and New Jersey Film Festivals and was an official selection at the Nashville FF, Toronto Lift-Off FF, Swedish Film Awards and NYC Festival of Cinema.

Tickets are $8 and $10 in advance, $12 and $15 at the door. Join us at 4:00 pm for a fun, toe-tapping afternoon at the Garfield Theatre!

For every luminary topping the industry for decades, there are hundreds (thousands?) whose fame was fleeting or non-existent. Before the homogenization of computerized national radio with sparse playlists, we could frequently hear “one-hit-wonders,” bringing back fond memories.

Dale Farmer shared NOBODY FAMOUS and I was hooked.  Here is a person who had her fifteen minutes of fame, but the story did not end there. Taylor Pie reinvented herself — not for fame or money — but for the sake of creating music, exploring genres, entertaining music lovers and empowering other musicians.

In the documentary and in person at the Garfield, you will encounter a genuine, opinionated, feisty, funny and outgoing woman who exemplifies a “life well lived.” She’s a hoot and so is the film.  Join us Saturday October 21 at 4 pm.


Pie (as her friends call her) was born in east Texas as Susan Taylor and spent most of her summers with grandparents in Longview listening to her mom and her 3 aunts harmonize on church hymns.

At 4, her family moved to Oklahoma and at 9, she studied guitar with Dick Gordon in Tulsa. Singing seemed to come naturally for Pie, but she was so shy that she could only sing songs to the family while standing behind grandma’s kitchen door. With Dick’s help, by the time Pie turned 10, she was performing at recitals and concerts that Gordon produced.

Elvis Presley was her favorite singer to emulate, and one night at the Tulsa IOOF hall as she was singing, “Love Me”, she stopped, grabbed the microphone like she’d seen Elvis do, and a woman in the front row squealed loudly! The woman thought it would thrill the young songster, but instead, it scared her so badly that Gordon had to step in to help Pie recover so she could finish the song!

In 1962 Pie moved to Corpus Christi, TX where at the age of 17, she formed a folk group called the Pozo-Seco Singers with Don Williams and Lofton Kline. When Kline was drafted, Ron Shaw replaced him and the group continued their success with national television appearances on shows like Mike Douglas, Joey Bishop and Pat Boone.

The group’s three album releases on Columbia Records, as well as one on Certron Records, have become collector’s items. Their biggest single was “Time” written by Michael Merchant, which hit #1 in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston and floated in the Billboard charts for over a year.

After the group disbanded, she helped launch the country music career of fellow Pozo, Don Williams. In the 70’s she formed a group called The City Country Band with Richard Frank in New York City. Bette Midler used one of her songs, “Back in the Bars Again” in her “Clams on the Half Shell Review”.

Pie’s first solo album, recorded in 1972 as Susan Taylor was for JMI Records, a Jack Clements’ label in Nashville. PuffBunny re-released it as, “Taylor Pie aka Susan Taylor: Finally Getting Home” in 2013, and added it to the list of other solo releases, “Long Ride Home,” “Jubal,” “So Little Has Changed,” “Live @ Hondo’s on Main” (with Eben Wood), and a recent offering, “Songswarm Vol 1” which she not only performs on, but produced.

After over 50 years of traveling around as a folk minstrel, Pie’s favorite comfort zone is to sit and sing a few for friends, which she often does at Liberty Arts, a house concert series she started in her local community, as well as select listening venues around the country.
