Butter For The Biscuit By Tasha Taylor

September 19, 2016


Tasha Taylor is the daughter of soul and Stax label legend Johnnie Taylor so the genetic code is in place; it just depends on how you use it. She is doing just fine as her latest release, Honey For The Biscuit, proves.

She has a smoother approach than her father and her ability to write her own material sets her apart from many of her contemporaries.

She has a soulful voice that is a perfect vehicle for interpreting her lyrics. It makes for an album that just percolates along. Her ballads carry the album but songs such as “Wedding Bells” with some Stax-like sax breaks, and “Family Tree” with Keb Mo guesting on guitar and vocals provide a nice counterpoint.

Tasha Taylor drips soul, so if you want some wonderful modern day soul, then you will find Honey For Your Biscuit a tasty treat.
