Dulcie Taylor delivers an emotionally affecting new album

New Times SLO
When 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.

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. The mid-tempo “Straight at the Sun” is a pleaser. Her 13 original compositions here are all tremendously impressive. And the one cover, a country reworking of the vintage Supremes hit, “My World Is Empty Without You,” takes on a whole new feeling. Taylor’s heartening music is a breath of fresh air.

Dulcie Taylor, “Wind Over Stone”

There was something special as the music mixed picture-perfect with her lyrics. The artist is Dulcie Taylor. Continue reading
