“TEXTURED LOVE”

WHEN I FIRST GOT THE CHANCE TO WRITE A REVIEW ON THIS TRULY AMAZING MUSICIAN, I WAS WOW’D & AMAZED HOW MUCH TALENT SHE HAS. SHE HAS A TRULY AMAZING STORY BEHIND HER MUSIC. THE AMAZING TALENT IM TALKING ABOUT IS THAT OF CANADIAN SINGER & SONGWRITER CRYSTAL TAYLOR, HER ALBUM IS CALLED “MEMPHIS BOUND’ AND WHAT’S SO TRULY AMAZING IS HER STORY BEHIND THE MUSIC. THE FIRST SONG IS CALLED “I’M GONNA GO TO GRACELAND” CRYSTAL AND HER LYRICS AND HER PASSION SHOWS THROUGH ON THIS SONG WHERE SHE ACTUALLY IS VERY CONVINCING & POINT BLANK TELLS YOU THAT SHE IS MEMPHIS BOUND, NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES, HEADED WHERE ELVIS PLAYED. WITH THIS BEING SAID THE NEXT SONG CALLED “TOGETHER OR PARTED” A TRUE LOVE STORY SET TO MUSIC & CRYSTAL HAS THAT PART OF MUSIC THAT WE CALL MUSICALITY THAT BRINGS HER MUSIC TO LIFE AND SHOWS HER TRUE MUSIC ARTISTRY. AS I WAS LISTENING TO THIS AMAZING MUSIC,THE TOTAL PACKAGE BEGAN TO UNFOLD IN FRONT OF MY EARS. CRYSTAL & HER SOUND REALLY HAS A WAY TO SINK IN AND HAS FEELING & EMOTION THAT DRIVES YOUR EARS TO REALLY LISTEN & HAS A SOUND THAT STAYS WITH YOU ALL THE WAY THROUGH. CRYSTAL HAS A VOICE THAT IS TRULY LOVE FELT & HAS AN AMAZING SINCERITY TO IT. THE “MEMPHIS BOUND” SONG REALLY HAS THAT ABILITY TO TAKE YOU WITH IT AND ALLOWS YOU TO FEEL THE PULSE & FEEL CRYSTALS EMOTIONAL VALUE THAT BRINGS YOU WITH HER. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “STARS” CRYSTALS VOICE IS SO VERY VULNERABLE & REAL, AND, AS MOST OF YOU KNOW IM A SUCKER FOR BALLADS, & WITH THAT BEING SAID THIS SONG I HEARD TRUE INNOCENCE & PURITY IN CHRYSTALS WONDERFUL VOCALS AND ABSOULUTELY FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS SONG. “MAYBE I’LL LET YOU” CRYSTAL RINGS IN WITH A TRUE MEMPHIS SOUND THAT BRINGS YOUR EARS TO A SOUND OF WELCOME. THE SONG HAS LETS YOU KNOW THAT MAYBE SHE’LL LET YOU. WITH THE START OF THE NEXT SONG CALLED “WHEN DAD PLAYED HIS OLD GUITAR” AN AMAZING SIDE OF CRYSTAL HAS, THAT IS THE ABILITY TO TELL YOU A STORY THROUGH HER LYRICAL CONTENT & HER CONVINCING EMOTION THAT IS BROUGHT OUT WITH HER VOCALS THAT ARE WHAT I CALL A PURE NATURAL. THE SONG THAT IS CALLED “PEOPLE NEED LOVE” CRYSTAL REALLY PUTS ASIDE A SOUND THAT IS ALMOST BORDERLINING THE BLUES, BUT ONCE AGAIN I FELT THE EMOTION THROUGH CRYSTALS WAY OF SINGING A SONG THAT IS REAL & FULL OF LIFE’S REAL & FELT TEXTURES. “WHEN KARMA COMES AROUND” A SONG THAT HAS A QUICK REFERENCE TO WHAT ARE YA GOING TO DO” WHEN KARMA BITES YOU IN THE ASS” AND IS POINTED RIGHT DIRECTLY BETWEEN YOUR EYES. “I LOVE YOU MORE TODAY THAN YESTERDAY” A SONG TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM THE TRUE MEMPHIS SOUND ANOTHER SONG THAT TOTALLY EMBRACES WHO CRYSTAL IS AS A SINGER/ SONGWRITER, CRYSTAL, HAS THAT NATURALNESS & SOFTNESS THAT IS REMINICIENT OF COUNTRY MUSIC WHEN ALL WROTE ABOUT LIFE’S EXPERIENCES & LIFE IN GENERAL. WITH THE START OF THE NEXT AMAZING SONG CALLED “THE WORLD GONNA STOP” IT REMINDED ME OF GEORGE JONES IN A SENSE OF THE TOTAL MUSICALITY TO IT, HOWEVER, CRYSTAL MADE HER SIGNATURE ON IT AND PUT HER PERFECT ANGLES AND MADE THE TURNTABLE ROLL AT 33 & A THIRD. AGAIN CRYSTAL SHOWS HER ABILITY TO REEL YOUR EARS IN FOR MORE. “BAD ASS” A SONG THAT IS GEAR DRIVEN & CRYSTAL BRINGS IN THE ELEMENTS OF HARD DRIVEN MUSIC THAT SHOWS HER ABILITIES TO CROSS OVER THE LINE OF TRADITIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC AND DRIVES YOUR EARS AND GETS FULL ATTENTION. “THE ONLY THING I DO IS YOU” WHERE SHE MAINTAINS HER WAY OF TELLING A STORY THROUGH HER CAREFUL & YET THOUGHTFUL LYRICS, WHILE SHOWING HER SENSITIVITY AS CARING FOR HER SIGNIFICANT OTHER. “YOU HAVE MY LOVE” A SONG THAT CRYSTAL SHOWS HER VOCALS ARRIVING FROM THE SENSITIVE SONGBOOK OF LOVE AND IS AMAZING TO FEEL HER VIBES OF LOVE THROUGHTOUT THIS TRUE DEFINITION OF A TRUE LOVE SONG, AGAIN HER SENSITIVITY SHINES THROUGH. “WHEN I GET A CHANCE” CRYSTAL BRINGS IN HER NATURAL ABILITY TO TELL A STORY THROUGH HER GIFT OF SONG AND WRITER. AS A WRITER AND MUSIC REVIEWER IT’S A REALLY NICE FEELING WHEN YOU HEAR A MUSICIAN THAT HAS THAT ABILITY TO TELL A STORY AND ALSO NARRARATES YOU THROUGH THE SONG AND THE MUSIC FLOWS ALONG WITH IT. “WHEN I THINK OF YOU” ANOTHER LOVE SONG THAT CRYSTAL BRINGS IN HER NATURAL ABILITY TO MAKE YOU REALLY FEEL ALL THE EMOTIONS OF WHAT ONE GOES THROUGH AND TRULY FEELS. CRYSTALS VOICE HAS THAT EVER LASTING FEELING & PRESENCE THAT I COULD FEEL HER TRUE EMOTIONS AND TOTAL SINCERITY. HONESTY, THAT KEPT ME ATTRACTED TO HER TOTAL MUISICALITY THROUGHOUT THIS WONDERFUL & HEARTFELT EMOTIONALLY LOVE FILLED MUSIC ALBUM. “ROLL WITH ME BABY” A SONG THAT IS A FUN FILLED AND HAS EXCITEMENT & IS JUST A SONG THAT CARRIES YOU ALONG FOR THE PART OF THE JOURNEY THAT WE ARE ALL ON. ALL IN ALL THIS AMAZING & HEARTFELT MUSIC ALBUM HAS ARRIVED IN MY EARS AS AN ALBUM THAT TELLS A STORY AND BRINGS TO LIFE THE EMOTIONAL PARTS AND CLEARLY DEFINES WHAT LIFE REALLY IS THROUGH CRTAL TAYLOR & ALLOWS ONE TO JOIN IN & GO FOR THE RIDE OF LIFE AND TRULY HEAD “MEMPHIS BOUND”

I have a very extensive broadcasting & music back round. With over 30 years experience. I have been nominated for several writing awards (ie) publicist and promoter of the year also, one of the industries most revered music reviewers. I started a writing career, with the idea bringing notice to the industry all music artists, focusing on Indie artists, and many mainstream artists as well. Writing about individuals, from all around the globe, all music genres and remaining consistent with my slogan of "Hearing is Believing", and "All Music Matters and bringing out the "positive" in all artists no matter how small, big or different. I feel all need to be given that chance to be noticed for their talents and allow others to hear, and noticed for their talent. As of date I have written well over 400 music album reviews and continue to acquire more everyday. Some legends, some independent artists. My continuing wish is they get the to share the stage lights within the industry. With making a difference with my "Positive " music reviews through my writing style, about them & for them and reviewing their music always in a "Positive" forum.
