For her sixth album Tangerine, Louise Taylor and producers Peter Gallway
and Annie Gallup opted for a dramatically
direct approach: keep her songs in a stark, stripped down but plugged-in form utilizing simply Taylor's expressive
voice, her trusty hollow body Duesenburg electric guitar and, in a stroke of divine luck, the masterful percussive
work of renowned drummer Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel). The exquisite end result is a collection of songs steeped
in late night atmospherics, both personal and powerful, an album that easily and firmly reestablishes Taylor as
one of our finest, if unheralded, writers and performers. With subtle, rootsy finesse, Taylor turns "China Doll"
and "Baby Hands" into sweetly turned blues gems while the raw, steamy "Morning Memphis" and "Riderless Pony"
veer confidently into Ry Cooder, John Hiatt and Sonny Landreth territory. For those who felt a certain kinship
with the latest from Bonnie Raitt, we suggest Tangerine as a tart and potent chaser. ---

Tangerine, my friends, is damn good. Damn good. With all of the things people can do with music these days,
we sometimes forget how powerful the simple can be. Louise Taylor didn't, and Gallway and Gallup certainly
didn't. The result, I believe, is what the result was meant to be. We can all be thankful for that. Tangerine
is a knockout album. There may be a lot of knockout albums out there, but I guarantee there are few like this.
It's a grand slam. --- Frank O. Gutch Jr.

When Louise Taylor reaches within herself to express a song, the world seemingly comes to
a halt. Her music is inherently sincere, drawing on her life experience for sustenance and
inspiration. "Taylor seems to have mastered a unique, sensuous and deeply personal path with
her music, songwriting and beautiful voice." --- Dirty Linen
"Louise Taylor is a breath of fresh air; her voice and songs shimmer. Just as she
draws you in with her murmuring poetry, she lets loose with an incredible,
powerful energy." --- Nerissa Nields (of The Nields).
"Totally captivating --first it's the voice, then the guitar work, then the
delivery and it's wonderful." --- Grassroots
