BGLU Alert: You Should, Need and Better Get to Know- Angel Taylor

"Every hero needs theme music"- Jack Spade from "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka"

It's been said to Tia and me on plenty of occasions that the dramedy of which is our lives should be made into a movie, a TV show, or a book. After hearing Angel Taylor today (thanks Joy), there is no doubt in my mind that if there ever were a BGLU movie or TV show, Angel Taylor would be singing the entire soundtrack.

Signed by Aware Records, home of BGLU staple John Mayer and early BGLU You Should Know artist from five years ago Mat Kearney (we always try to put yall on early) Angel Taylor is simply perfect and perfectly simple. Her vocals remind me of Missy Higgins with the songwriting style of a Colbie Caillat and a tinge of Corinne Bailey Rae. With respect to how much some artists hate to be compared to their contemporaries, I liken her to these artists to say that Angel Taylor is every girl's girl, especially if you are a BGLU. Her lyrics (see “Chai Tea Latte”) read as if she had been writing lyrics while sitting behind Tia and me at my favorite coffee shop. I cannot WAIT for this girl to release an album and play Nashville. Check out her Myspace page at www.myspace.com/angeltaylor . I mean, have we ever steered you wrong before?
