An easy must for fans of cleverly crafted, interesting, endlessly enjoyable songwriting. Ann Taylor’s voice has a soothing quality to it that works beautifully as the driving force behind the writing.
I’m finding myself increasingly inspired by 2018’s array of new musical offerings. Wildest Dreams is a beautiful addition, a wonderful song with a full, vibrant musical set-up & a central sentiment that seeks to uplift & motivate you to aim a little higher.
What first appear as specific details unrelated to anyone else, later become the building blocks of your own version of life experiences or memories. It’s a strong way to write.
There’s a lot more to this project than the infectious vibrancy of the opening track tends to imply. The music is beautiful, the leading vocalist has something special that draws you in & keeps you listening & believing.
A total joy to listen to, not just because of the wonderful songwriting, but because of the flawless & clearly lost-in-the-moment performances as well.
Mark Rogers is a multi-instrumentalist & songwriter whose debut EP Rearranged offers audiences a warm & partly nostalgic touch of gentle Americana, featuring a string of thoughtful lyrics & enjoyable melodies.
Showcasing the best in poetic story-telling & musical prowess, this album – originally called “Trump Songs for Leonard Cohen” – gives audiences a relevantly Cohen or Dylan-esque playlist of uplifting darkness & provocative reflections on life.
The classic energy of the music is brilliant, the band perform superbly at every moment. The songwriting is wonderful, complex yet accessible, and forever interesting.
