When I first started getting into freelance writing I would apply to write everywhere, it didn’t matter if they only paid in high fives and hellos. Well, anyways…I applied to write for some site – the name escapes me now, it’s been years – and they sent me a few albums to write about as a test. Angel Taylor’s Love Travels was one of them and even though the site didn’t hire me, I’d found a new favorite album. That was back in late 2009/early 2010. She was making a little noise here and there, and most recently was on The Voice. She didn’t make it, but in my head you’re better off.
Back to Love Travels. If you like artists like Colbie Caillat, then you have to want to grab onto Angel’s vocals and not let go. “Like You Do” is a light and airy track that makes anyone smile, but when “Chai Tea Latte” started – the words hit me and I was like – the day I find a guy I can truly dedicate this to, that’s it. A handful of years later I have and did. He got it on a mixtape for Christmas and since his birthday is next week, it’s this week’s cover star.
