I have met Taylor & he shines with the grace of a true gentle man & gentleman. He is a genuinly true artist in every sense of the word, who's talent is far beyond what most so called entertainers can even begin to understand. He doesn't live in a 'box' filled with noise, that some call music, just to be popular. Taylor remains true to himself, not willing to cower to the music 'mongrels' who want to make him like everybody else. He delivers to us something we lost many years ago ~ depth, lyrics that have a story; memories reborn, passion for a positive life, music that any age can relate to. Taylor remains to say, "It's all about the music!" I am honored to have met & experienced Taylor R. Hicks! He is a true representation of what real music is all about! And for you Taylor ~ "'SOUL PATROL'"!!!
