Taylor Steele and the Love Preachers have a way of sneaking up on you. The music is souful, but sublime. The songs are smart and original, with roots that take you through rock and roll back to the blues of the old south. The vocal quality of Taylor Steele is reminiscent of great singers of the past like Bonnie Raitt and Joni Mitchell but also modern stars like Susan Tedeschi and Gillian Welch. And just when you think you have it figured out, the Love Preachers start preaching, Taylor’s voice starts soaring and they take you for the ride of your life.
