Interview is Now Up

Interview With Taylor Hicks

Taylor Hicks: A peak into the Interview

Taylor Hicks was kind enough to talk to me via phone about his music and his future plans. The interview will be up shortly for everyone to read. I will post the link when it is up. I thought I would give you a small sneak peak into my conversation with Taylor Hicks yesturday. Enjoy and you should be able to read it all shortly.

You've been compared to the likes of the great Ray Charles and Elvis Presley. Is it a lot of pressure to live up to the hype people are creating for you or are you more concerned with leaving your own mark on the industry?

Taylor - I'm very flattered to be in the same sentence as those two artists and I'm just trying to really make my own path and mark my own way.

It's rare to find a relatively new artist cultivate such a strong following of fans in a few months' time. How does it feel to have such a strong outpouring so early?

Taylor - Well it really helps the cause, it really helps my music and I'm just very appreciative of all those people that are on The Soul Patrol.

Taylor Hicks: My Interview With Taylor Hicks

I know many are waiting for me to let them know how my interview with Taylor Hicks went. It is easiest just to post it here than try to post everywhere. Taylor is a very nice person. He answered all my questions so I will have a good article for everyone to read soon. I was very nervous. My hands even started shaking. Taylor told me to not be nervous. Taylor is having a blast and he loves his job. I told him I liked his album had heard it at VH1. He was thrilled to hear this. I cannot give a lot of details right now you will have to wait until the article is ready. Taylor Hicks is just the way we perceive him to. Even though it was over the phone I could tell he is as sweet and sincere as we feel he is. He is as excited over this album as we are and he is very appreciative of The Soul Patrol.

Taylor Hicks: Listen to Whole Cd

What a treat today was. I got up to watch Good Morning America. Taylor Hicks was playing at Hard Rock Café. The Soul Patrol was there in full force smiling and having a great time singing right along with Taylor. Once again you could see Taylor was having the time of his life. Just seeing the smile on his face is contagious.

After that I go to Gray and low and behold I see a link to hear Taylor Hicks CD. At first I stall a little do I really want to hear it all before I get my CD? Then I decide yes I do I will still be thrilled when I pop the CD into my car stereo and turn it full blast on my way home from Wal-Mart.

This CD is everything I expected it to be and more. Taylor Hicks knows exactly what it takes to make not just a good song but a truly great, soulful unforgettable song. It is hard to choose a favorite so I won’t even try. If you aren’t a fan of Taylor Hicks yet just go buy his CD on Dec 12th and you will be Taylorized! Taylor Hicks, The Soul Patrol is so thankful for you and bringing back real music. You will be a legend and The Soul Patrol will continue to grow.
