Cover_Art_1000x1000When Dulcie Taylor speaks, there’s no hiding her South Carolina roots, reflected in both her drawling accent and her unrelenting southern charm. After establishing her singer-songwriter bonafides in the Washington D.C. area, she moved to SLO County a couple years ago and wasted no time immersing herself in our own local music scene, even while her previous three albums were enjoying radio play nationwide.

Last year she entered and won the New Times Music Awards “Best Songwriter” category and won with “Cigarette Smoke.” This year, she’s released her fourth album, Only Worn One Time, and it’s a stunner—11 tracks recorded locally at the Colorado Room in Atascadero and produced by George Nauful and Tyson Leonard, mixed by Keith Olsen, and released on Mesa/Bluemoon Records.

DulcieTaylor-ReimaginedDear Friends,
I wanted so share some thoughts on the six songs which we remixed for new EPReimagined, which is out today!

“Easy For You” (from Diamond & Glass, 2002). When a couple breaks up, there’s almost always one of the people who has an easier time of it. This song is written from the viewpoint of the person having the harder time. We chose it for the remix because we love the song and the track is very special. It was a delight to work on again.

My video, “Halfway to Jesus,” has been nominated in two categories of the California Music Video Awards at Music California – BEST EYE (Cinematography) and BEST BLUES/COUNTRY. A shout out to my director, Trevor Lawrence, who works magic when he picks up a camera, still or moving pictures (and he’s a GREAT writer as well). Thank you, Trevor, for the three videos we’ve done together.
