House of Light

Taylor Barton

Released: Nov 9, 2018

“Taylor Barton's emotional lyrics push the listener to go deep! Her imagery can evoke feelings of eerie calm and beauty in songs like “House of Light" or "Steeplechase" while at other times crush us with a song like “Where Did You Go”, where she morphs herself into the heartbroken soul of a mother who is forced to survive, after a child's suicide. Taylor provides shelter and deftly carries us thru life's spectrum of experiences as her accomplished band, led by husband GE Smith, mesmerizes with their skillful performances. House of Light is her best work yet!“

—Lauren Stone, Owner, Long Island Radio Broadcasting WEHM Program Director/Midday Host

Dry Land

Taylor Barton

Taylor Barton - Dry Land

Released: Dec 31, 2001

“This is a good recording. Taylor Barton is an exceptional singer and composer, whose musical gifts are heard to good advantage on this CD, “Dry Land” is a fine collection of tunes, nine of which are originals, that have the proverbial story-like quality in the lyrics. The words go beyond the rote simplicity of covering subjects like love and relationships. Instead they delve into more personal areas, covering various aspects of life from Barton’s point of view. Barton’s voice has a soft feathery sound that matches the mood of each tune perfectly. Tunes like “Code Talk”, “Half Moon Bay”, “Louise” and the exquisite rendering of the title-cut “Dry Land” by musician Joan Armatrading all serve as good examples of Barton’s approach.”

—Alan Chase, Portland Herald

Taylor Barton - 13 Break-Ups

“On her fourth album (13 Break-Ups) Taylor Barton sets off on a stunning note with the title cut....A meaty melody and infectious rock beat. Taylor’s a solid writer with a rootsy Americana outlook....the brooding “In Your Kiss”..The vulnerable “Souless Bottle” “Big Black Boots”, delectable slice....Her songs deserve a wider audience.”

—Mick Skidmore, Relix

“Barton’s music on ‘Mean American Dream’ is breezy rhythm and blues-flavored pop with her sweetly trilling vocals its most unique aspect... The acoustic guitar sound on the ballad ‘Darkness Makes Me Strong’ makes it especially poignant... ‘Cast A Spell’ is one of the album’s best cuts, Barton’s vocal...’Wake Up Call’ ends this auspicious debut with another arresting vocal.
