Album Notes
The album’s title references a lyric in the track “Making My Way Back,” about her reawakening to her musical path after abandoning it for years. Awake Again represents three years of Taylor’s songwriting.
Having worked her way from open mics to her own shows, Taylor connected with award-winning songwriter and guitarist Jon Shain to sharpen her guitar skills. About a year later, with Shain’s encouragement and offer to act as producer, the pair selected a dozen songs for her debut album. After a couple of months of polishing and pre-production work, they entered the studio in January 2016.
Produced by Shain and engineered by FJ Ventre (longtime Shain collaborator and locally sought-after bassist), the CD features a host of NC-based luminaries in supporting roles. In addition to Shain on guitar and Ventre on bass, guests include Ed Butler (drums), Lynn Blakey of Tres Chicas (backing vocals), Tim Stambaugh (banjo), Allyn Love (pedal steel), Rob Sharer (bamboo flute), Kaitlin Grady of Saints Apollo (cello) and Kaye Saunders (piano). The result is a fully fleshed-out – and at the same time, subtle – rendering of Taylor’s intimate songs.

A songwriter’s songwriter, with deep roots in the folk tradition….Isabel’s moving lyrics ride perfectly on top of waves of acoustic guitar. Her vocals, tender and somewhat haunting, echo the truth of her insights on life, love, and the human condition.
