FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE FROM WARM & FILLED MANAGEMENT
AND SILENT PLANET RECORDS:
June 2, 2000 (Minneapolis, MN) - Silent Planet Records
announces the signing of Terry Scott Taylor.
Terry Scott Taylor is considered one of the most prolific
and critically acclaimed songwriters performing today.
He is well known for his work as a solo artist and as the main
writer, vocalist and producer for The Lost Dogs and Daniel Amos.
Now, Terry has signed a multi-album deal with the acoustic-based
Silent Planet label, as he embarks on a new journey
with a brand new record and focus.
The new CD, entitled Avocado Faultline, was produced and mixed by
multi-instrumentalist Phil Madeira (who has worked with Pierce
Pettis, Rich Mullins, Alison Krauss, Phil Keaggy & Vigilantes of
Love) and mastered by Buddy Miller (known for his work with Emmy Lou
Harris). The album includes performances by Steve Hindalong, Jimmy
A, Rikki Michele, Phil Madeira and others.
Avocado Faultline is an acoustic based project that will appeal not
only to Terry's existing fan base but also to a whole new audience
that may not be familiar with his earlier work. The music is a unique
blend of pop, rock, Americana, and country. The album is highlighted
by heartfelt lyrics and songs that have a great mix of intelligent
artistic expression and commercial accessibility -- those very
qualities which recently landed Terry a position as a BMG
Entertainment songwriter. Avocado Faultline will be released in July
with a special performance at the Cornerstone Festival and an
official street date of Tuesday, July 25th.
Label director Tony Shore commented on the signing saying, "Both
Steve West (Label President) and myself are very excited to be
working with Terry Taylor and to have an artist of this caliber on
the label. He fits perfectly with our vision to combine art and
spiritual truths. Terry and I have known each other for a long time,
and when I found out that he wanted to do a more acoustic based
project, I knew it would be perfect for Silent Planet. We feel that
this is some of his best work and has the most potential of anything
he's done to expand his fan base. He's got new management,
a fresh outlook and is going to tour in support of this release.
We have big plans for this record."
Said Jonathan Feavel of Warm & Filled, Terry's management
company, "We're very much looking forward to a long term relationship
with Silent Planet. It's great when a record company is not only
excited about an artist but has committed to realizing a shared
vision. We're hopeful that this is just the beginning of a mutually
beneficial relationship. We're looking forward to the ride."
