A passionate blend of youthful innocence, soulful essence and a spiritual center, 20-year-old singer/songwriter Angel Taylor is every bit as wholesome and pure as her recording debut ‘Love Travels,’ offering her longing for love and lust for life colored by dashes of hope.
The Southern California native never wanted a recording contract, but fate intervened, making Angel Taylor one of music’s emerging voices for those of us who seeking substance amidst the overblown style of today’s pop culture. Looking for nothing more than a way to record a few of her songs for family and friends as a Christmas gift, an unknowing email to producer Mikal Blue [Colbie Caillat, Brendan James] resulted in an invitation to his Revolver Studios for an impromptu audition. “I played two songs, Chai and It’s Easy, and he said he wanted to work with me. I told him all I wanted to do was get my music on a CD, and asked him how long that was going to take, and he said, ‘Oh no, I want to really work with you.’”
And in a manner of months, the soft-spoken and big-hearted Angel Taylor took her first plane trip (to visit record labels in New York), got her first cell phone, and after signing with Aware/Columbia Records, was able to move herself, her mother and two of her sisters into their first house. Not bad for a girl who never had any musical schooling, and only starting writing poetry because of her sister.
