ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Isabel Taylor is the self-titled sophomore album by North Carolina singer-songwriter Isabel Taylor. After the success of her debut release, Awake Again -- which reached #15 on the Folk DJ charts in January 2017 -- Taylor teamed up once again with producer and award-winning singer-songwriter Jon Shain and engineer FJ Ventre. What started as Taylor’s idea for an EP featuring a handful of songs -- some written around the time of her first release -- grew to a nine- track album that includes a song written during the course of the project, ‘Perfection.’ The album was recorded in January-February 2019.

Taylor started her musical career at 45, singing at her first open mic in 2010, accompanying herself on guitar. She performed songs by artists she grew up listening to, like Neil Young, Judy Collins, and James Taylor. Within a couple of years she was playing her own shows and writing songs. Taylor served as president of the NC Songwriters Co-op for over three years, and is on the board of the Southeast Regional Folk Alliance.

The new album’s instrumentation is sparse -- the intent was to present the songs as Taylor might perform them live with a small ensemble. In addition to Shain on guitars and Ventre on bass and backing vocals, contributors include esteemed songwriter and vocalist Laurelyn Dossett, additional backing vocals by singer-songwriters Barry Gray and Leah Kaufman, Doug Hammer on piano, percussionist Jim Roberts, and Taylor’s sister, Carmen Valls, on violin. Continuing in the lyrical style of her first album, the tracks on the new release tend toward the personal.
