True North" wins Best Contemporary Folk Recording at the 23rd Annual Wammies! Washington Area Music Awards

Lisa Taylor is a mommy, therapist, singer-songwriter, guitarist and drummer from the Washington D.C. area. She is a two time WAMMIE  (Washington Area Music Association) winner, A Kerrville New Folk Finalist, A Mountain Stage Finalist and a Formal and Tricentric showcase performer for the prestigious North East Regional Folk Alliance Conference. Her talents as a drummer, percussionist, arranger and vocalist are featured on over 40 albums, some of which have appeared on film and television. Whether in the intimacy of solo performance, fronting her own band, or as the rhythmic engine as a member of Andrew McKnight & Beyond Borders along with founding Nitty Gritty Dirt Band member Les Thompson, Lisa's musical blessings are meant to be shared and enjoyed.

"True North” is a revelation.   The Washington, D.C. area possesses some remarkable musical talent, and Lisa Taylor is certainly a worthy example.   If one were to seek a simple description of Taylor’s sound on “True North,” the closest might be KT Tunstall meets Roseanne Cash, but that really only touches the surface. Inventive and original throughout, “True North” is a collection of well-crafted songs performed with real feeling, and with creative arrangements.  It’s a terrific record that deserves attention on a much wider scale.
