Cassie Taylor coming to our little Juke Joint! CASSIE TAYLOR CRAFTS 21st CENTURY SOUND FROM DELTA BEDROCK ON 'OUT OF MY MIND,' OUT 5/7 ON YELLOW DOG RECORDS From the Delta bedrock to the fringes of electronica to the driving spirit of rock and roll, Cassie Taylor draws on a wide swath of influences — spanning centuries, continents and cultures — to create her own indelible and utterly modern sound on 'Out Of My Mind,' set for May 7 release on Yellow Dog Records. With influences ranging from a New Orleans second line to West African psychedelic rock, the album's 12 original songs—all written and arranged by Taylor—are the work of a truly 21st century musical omnivore. From the record's lead track, "Ol' Mama Dean (Part 1)," which opens with drums and Theremin, to the wistful piano closer "Again," Taylor proves to be a gifted, independent-minded songwriter with a flair for the unexpected and a voice that will haunt your dreams. "In concert I’ll play Nine Inch Nails' 'Closer' and segue into Muddy Waters' 'I Just Want To Make Love To You' to make a point," says Taylor. "They're equally grounded in blues; they both have the same message and the same changes, and prove that this musical tradition is relevant today." Though she's only 26 years old, Taylor is already a veteran of 10 years in the studio and on the road playing with her father, the venerated bluesman Otis Taylor. The prodigious chops she developed on the bass and keyboards over the past decade shine throughout the self-produced record, complemented by the searing guitar of Steve Mignano and incisive drumming of Larry Thompson, who round out the album's core trio. Taylor, whose stunning looks have earned her magazine spreads and runway walks as a fashion model, will hit the road this spring for a US tour with her band. Stay tuned for dates.
