Angel Taylor's Love Travels Debut Hits Stores Nationwide Sept. 22

Sony Columbia Records - 09/11/2009

On September 22, music fans everywhere will be able to hear Love Travels, the record that critics have been raving about. For some fans, Angel's splice of life has been their mainstay, since it became available on-line in March 2009. But with Taylor's release now at retail stores everywhere, expect love to travel.

Billboard magazine has 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.

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 Angel 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 first single from Love Travels will be "Like You Do," which will be accompanied by a video that was filmed in Nashville, TN.

Prior to the album's widespread release, "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 her first headlining tour.

Angel Taylor will be on the road with Brandi Carlile and Five For Fighting, to mark the release of her debut.

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.
