Brit Taylorís highly anticipated sophomore album, Kentucky Blue, is a drive down the famed Country Music Highway Ė Route 23 -- back to her Appalachian roots.† Grammy-winner Sturgill Simpson and renowned engineer and producer David Ferguson caught wind of the Kentucky gem after her self-reflective debut album, Real Me, garnered praise from Rolling Stone, American Songwriter and NPRís World Cafť.† The two legends didnít hesitate to jump in and get their hands dirty, producing the next musical chapter of Britís life story. The album is to be released on Britís own Cut A Shine Records in collaboration with Thirty Tigers.
Having the courage to find her ďreal meĒ set Brit free.† Kentucky Blue is a musical celebration of her healing and rebirth.† It exudes confidence with a touch of attitude that replaces the melancholy, contemplative sound of Real Me.† It is a progression of her life and her music and an introduction to the stand-your-ground and know-your-worth Brit of today.† It is a shift back to her East Kentucky influences where the cry of the fiddle, the moan of the steel guitar, the twangy banjo and the atmospheric string section are like a journey floating through space and time.
Brit continues to unabashedly write and sing about what she lives and what she knows and sees. Itís genuine. Itís who she is.
Kentucky Blue is Britís personal invitation to you to join her at her cabin in the woods for a bourbon, a swing on the porch and a story-telling song.
