DULCIE TAYLOR – “WIND OVER STONE”
Taylor’s brand of folk-country-rock is positively mesmerizing. She’s fiery on the uplifting, resilient freedom song, “Not Here, Not Today.” Her expressive voice rivets the listener on moving ballads like “Only A Dreamer,” “Prayer” and “Nobody Cared About Love.” “Love Like Yours and Mine,” a wistful waltz, charms.
