Brit Taylor (from the album Kentucky Blue available on Cut A Shine Records/Thirty Tigers) (by Bryant Liggett)
Brit Taylor is light on the somber and heavy on the sass. Her latest in Kentucky Blue is an album of clean-cut Country with hinted fills of Bluegrass, a Rootsy dose of light twang and a lot of new Country, that even takes a brief, Pop-heavy twirl on the dance-floor. She has left something for everyone in the Pop world, those sassy cuts filled with attitude, the somber cuts filled with gutsy emotion.
There’ a familiar bounce and a homey vibe in the opener “Cabin in the Woods”, a cut that’s like a front-porch greeting that comes with a big smile and open arms. That bounce is kicked up a notch with a funky fiddle and bar-room piano on “Anything but You” as Brit Taylor throws around a sad ballad in the title track, slipping in some clever states references via the lonely lyrics.
Accordion and Spanish guitar gives the ballad “No Cowboys” a border town, western-noir feel, while “If You Don’t Wanna Love Me” has a rootsy Funk groove. The curveball then comes with “For A Night”, where Brit Taylor shelves the new Country and the Bluegrass, offering up a straight ahead and soulful Pop-tune. The band, which has fun fills of perfectly placed banjo, fiddle, and accordion, serves as great support to Brit Taylor’s lyrics. She’s a fun songwriter with a bit of rebelliousness as heard in “Rich Little Girls,” and when lyrics come on strong, she’s got thick instrumentation to back it all up. (by Bryant Liggett)
