CD Review: Doreen Taylor Puts A Little "Magic" Into Her New Album

Singer/songwriter, Doreen Taylor has entered the realm of country music with her latest album, “Magic.” The new release carries ten original songs and a remake of Gershwin’s “Summertime.” After her dance-beat filled debut album, Doreen wanted more meaning in her songs, which led her to release her first country-based album.

Her voice is perfectly suited for this type of music as in the opening song “Last Call (For Alcohol)” and the ballad “Another Rainy Night In Memphis.” The album’s second single; “Heartbeat” has very passionate performance from Doreen as heard in the music and in her vocal delivery. She also knows how to have fun with the upbeat “Good Girls Wanna Be Bad” and “Baby C’mon.” The album closes with Doreen pouring her heart and soul into her performance of the “Porgy and Bess” song, “Summertime,” which has become the most downloaded song from her new album.

Doreen Taylor’s new album, “Magic” was released back in April, but is finally getting a lot of airplay with her latest single, “Judgment Day” as it's lyrics depict the end of the world. The video was delayed because of Hurricane Sandy, but has since received rave reviews. Doreen was also awarded the “2012 Suggested Artist Songwriting Award” by the Song of the Year Songwriting Completion committee.
