The Atascadero News
Atascadero singer songwriter Dulcie Taylor experienced an epiphany at athe Paso Robles DMV a few years back. In 2012, she moved from Washington, D.C. to Atascadero, and was delighted to find that the smiling faces around her are for real. “I’m used to the DMV not being a fun experience,” Taylor said. “The lady at the counter was there joking with my husband and myself, we were all laughing. the people here on the Central Coast are just so nice, even the DMV is a nice experience.” Taylor’s newest CD, “Only Worn One Time,” was released on the Mesa / Bluemoon Recordings label earlier this month, and a slew of local shows are planned for the rest of the summer.

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.

Black Iris Records – 2004
A review written for acousticmusic.com

With this new disc from Dulcie Taylor there is significant growth from the first disc on Black Iris, and that was a very solid effort.
On this second go round from Black Iris Records she either wrote or co-wrote all the songs that we are presented with for our auditory pleasure. These songs reflect the germination of ideas that have taken place in the intervening time between the recording of these two discs. Continue reading
