Chip Taylor's Americana Poetry
September 26, 2003
The new found "Americana" category despite its edgy truthfulness, has been chided somewhat for being lyrically lightweight. Softspoken Chip Taylor's poetry dispels that image: "I'm a sky with no end just tryin' to rain; when the ground's gettin' thirsty - that's who I am." Joined in duets by Fiddler Carrie Rodriguez, Chip's songs are full of wisdom and understatement. Hear Memphis, Texas, Don't Speak in English, and Oh Ireland on Folk Alley.
