About Angel Taylor:

It's been a great year for singer-songwriter Angel Taylor, whose critically acclaimed debut album, Love Travels, has just been named iTunes Best Pop Album of 2009. Love Travels has been called "one of the top debuts of the year" by the Associated Press, and received three-out-of-four stars in People magazine, which announced Taylor as, "fresh and honeydew-sweet... her glowing pop tunes will win over fans of both Corinne Bailey Rae and Colbie Caillat." Essence magazine raves that Taylor is "heaven sent" and that her "graceful piano driven songs about finding, losing and yearning for love are sure to resonate with audiences of all ages." The music industry's bible, Billboard magazine, has also hailed the 21-year-old singing/songwriting sensation as one of their "15 Artists to Watch in 2009," and The New York Post agrees, ranking her amongst their "6 Who'll Sizzle" this year.

VH1 has put their stamp on Angel Taylor, including her in their prestigious "You Oughta Know" new artist campaign starting in January 2010. VH1 will also debut Taylor's first music video, "Like You Do." Previous "You Oughta Know" artists include, Amy Winehouse, The Fray, and Columbia Records label-mate, Adele.

Prior to the album's widespread release in September 2009, "Make Me Believe" was chosen as an iTunes Single of the Week and has already been downloaded more than a half-million times, with Taylor also being heard on prime time television hits "One Tree Hill" and "90210." She spent the spring opening for Adele and Brett Dennen, and started her summer on the road with Kate Voegele before embarking on a fall tour with Brandi Carlile and Five For Fighting. Taylor made her national television debut on October 17, 2009 when she performed her single, "Like You Do," on the Ellen DeGeneres show.

Produced by Mikal Blue [Colbie Caillat], Love Travels marks Taylor's coming of age as a songwriter. The 12 tracks are more than just personal missives that she has set to music; they are living and breathing experiences that everyone has shared. The names may change, but the stories remain the same.
