Taylor Hicks is on the road again reprising his role as "Teen Angel" in the national touring production of Grease! He has just finished recording a new CD which is due to be released February 10th, along with a new DVD called "Whomp At The Warfield".
Taylor will also start his own national tour later in 2009!
According to Taylor, the fans will get a preview of the single from that CD, during the Grease shows once the single is released.
" Once the album is finished, I will be doing a single off of the record. And then I will be doing a very intimate national club tour alongside the Grease tour, hopefully in each market we perform in. I'm pretty excited that the new music will start to grow legs from a live perspective. I'm actually going into really cool, intimate clubs across the country, performing new material before I go out on tour myself." ~ Taylor Hicks (interview with Sherry Lipton)
Taylor In The Studio
"My idea for this record was to try and find the greatest songs I possibly could. For me, having the time to be able to write and to be able to have those songs around me for an extended amount of time... I wanted to kind of live with the songs for awhile. I feel like my instincts on Idol were very similar to my instincts on this record. I've tried to really put great songs around me. In today's music - if you buy a CD, a whole album of songs - a lot of the songs are often similar in the way that they sound. But for me, there's a lot of different styles that I think are reflective of my artistic expression. I think with this record I've been able to hopefully take the listener on a musical journey into the songs I've written, and a lot of them touch on different styles. But the common thread is my voice. There's a lot of storytelling in the songs. I've been able to hop into different genres and pull out the greatest music that I can." ~ Taylor Hicks ( interview with Sherry Lipton)
