Mesmerizing local singer/songwriter Kim Taylor – who performed recently at the CMJ Music Festival in New York City — has a new five-song EP called The Greatest Story …, which is available now for about four bucks if you download it on her Web site. (In fact, all of Kim’s music is only available digitally as of now; CDs are only being sold at shows, while a vinyl version of her I Feel Like a Fading Light is due out in December.) The set will hit the iTunes store in the near future.
The Kim Taylor MySpace page has three full-song samples from the Greatest EP, including the piano-driven Soul Pop of “Let Me Down.” Check it out here.
Kim has a busy November lined up. She will be touring extensively with her friend, Louisville singer/songwriter/cellist Ben Sollee, who has done occasional show dates accompanying Kim since last year. The two will play together during each others' sets on the trek. The tour starts in Nashville Nov. 5 and run through the Midwest and East Coast, before wrapping up on the West Coast with shows in Portland, San Francisco and L.A.
Here’s a YouTube video for the song “Let Me Down” from the new EP:
