Documentary followed by Q&A with Taylor Pie

“Being able to survive, and not having to depend on being famous, to me, was a gift.”
— Taylor Pie

Written, produced and directed by Elizabeth Ahlstrom, NOBODY FAMOUS begins with the story of Susan Taylor and The Pozo-Seco Singers, an American folk band that emerged during the 1960s. Comprised of Taylor, Don Williams and Lofton Kline, the trio hailed from Corpus Christi, TX.

When folk songs were the rage in the volatile sixties, the trio signed with Columbia Records and their music went wide, hitting the national pop music charts with hits like “Time,” “I Can Make It With You” and “I Believed It All.”  But when the hits stopped coming, Taylor and Williams became a duo and once found themselves having to sing while standing on top of a bar in a saloon. They knew it was time to move on.

Fast forward:  These days, Susan Taylor is known as Taylor Pie, preferring  “Pie.” 
While paying homage to the Pozo Seco Singers, NOBODY FAMOUS focuses on what happened with Taylor after the group’s brief flurry of fame: Pie reinvented herself — not for money or fame — but for the sake of living a simple life, writing songs that explore country, blues and pop genres, holding house concerts and empowering other musicians.

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!

TAYLOR PIEEnsconced for almost forty years on a 20-acre country farm fifty miles east of Nashville, Taylor Pie is light years away from the big business record company hustle of the sixties.

Just as folk music faded in the ’70s, Pie’s focus changed as well – while still rooted in folk, she works in country, blues and pop genres. We call it “Americana” now, a non-existent term fifty years ago.

Life after her original folk trio – the Pozo Seco Singers – is much to her liking – house concerts, occasional travel for listening room concerts and time spent writing songs and working with other musicians.



DALE FARMER DALE FARMER, filmmaker and musician, was born and raised in Butler County, Ohio and as a young adult moved to Nashville, TN to pursue a music career. After a few years of performing in Nashville, Dale moved back to Ohio and followed his second passion as an Emergency Response Coordinator for The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. Before retiring in 2018, Dale produced videos for the US EPA and other government and nonprofit entities.

Dale is also a multi-instrumentalist who plays two bands in the Greater Cincinnati Area (The Farmer and the Crow and Jericho Old Time Band) and has engineered and produced several music albums.

He grew up absorbing the stories and mountain music traditions of his grandparents, all of whom were Appalachian musicians and ballad singers. Heeding advice to “write what you know,” Dale created the story and film, The Mountain Minor, based on his family’s own experiences in migrating from the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky. He now works full time on film making and running alt452 Productions, a music and film production company dedicated to celebrating Appalachian music and culture.

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 for a few 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.
