Album Review: Dulcie Taylor’s “Only Worn One Time”
by Joseph Miller for High Note Reviews
When writing reviews, I usually go through a pretty set routine as I write about various people and their work. However, every now and then something happens as I research, watch and most importantly listen as I write about their work. So it goes with this singer/songwriter. It has been a long time since I have heard words and music coming out of someone like I have heard here. She is a poet, storyteller, and a gifted musician, as she seems to have fused together a contemporary folk mix along with an Appalachian sound with her dulcimer at her side.

DULCIE TAYLOR/Only Worn One Time
by Chris Spector
Here’s a pretty sweet find. Taylor feels like a singer/songwriter that wanted to try something new after touring with Sade. While the material looks like a bummer on paper, in your ear, it’s oddly hypnotic and mesmerizing. Taylor has a tiger by the tail on a lot of levels from writing to performing. Supported by a boat load of talent intent on not letting her down, this isn’t down mouth college girl stuff. This is killer adult listening for anyone that wants more than beats in their bytes. Sure fire killer stuff from a major talent that been hiding from the rest of us for too long.

The Mirrors and Windows Interview
By Kerry Dexter
Dulcie Taylor often jokes that the person who had the greatest influence on her music wasn’t a musician at all. “It was the ten-year-old boy who wandered up on the porch where we were staying at the beach and sat on my ukulele and smashed it,” she recalled with a chuckle. Dulcie, ten years old herself at the time, was crushed. Her spirits revived when, at Christmas time, her mother gave her a guitar. Continue reading
