ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In an email dated Nov. 3, 2003, Derek Sivers of CDBaby wrote:” Taylor - I love your "Long Ride Home" CD so much I'm going to feature it on the FRONT PAGE of CD Baby for a few days.

We're REALLY picky about what goes on the front page. We get about
75 new albums a DAY coming in here now, (about 30,000 total), and
yours is one of the best I've ever heard!”

Now, almost four years later, Taylor Pie has joined the growing list of highly successful independent artists represented here at CDBaby. Her listening audience began to expand with the “Long Ride Home” and “Jubal” cds, and the release of “So Little Has Changed” will certainly push her popularity to new heights. The powerful UTube video of Pie singing the title track live keeps building its number of daily hits by devoted fans.

This Nashville recorded offering is a classic gem and one of the last albums from Jack’s Tracks, a music row studio which sold after more than 30 years of producing hits for the likes of Crystal Gayle and Garth Brooks. The list of musicians is small, but impressive, each one an artist in their own right. Dave Pomeroy, bass; Kenny Malone, percussion; Eben Wood, acoustic lead guitar, and Russ Pahl, pedal steel and electric guitar. The improvisational feel with little or no overdubbing, allows us to hear the exquisitely pure arrangements of these unforgettable songs, surrounding Pie’s superb vocals with perfect sensitivity and taste. Co-producer Mark Miller at the mixing board sprinkling magic dust for the final touch, makes this Pie’s best album so far.

The songs range in texture and rhythm from the jazzy first cut, “Jar of Kisses” to the final title cut, “So Little Has Changed,” which is reminiscent of a Malvina Reynolds socially conscious folk commentary. “Back to Balsam Blues” slow drives you down a back country road and “Be Here With You,” takes your breath away with Appalachian power ballad grace. “Full Grown Fool” is acoustic funk at its best and “Ocean of Lonely” an excursion into acoustic rock. “Cypress Lake” became a video from footage filmed during the recording session, and is also on YouTube.

This is an album with something for everyone!

Taylor Pie is the kind of folk artist who simply refuses to be kept inside the box. Her diversity is displayed more than ever on this collection, and for those of you already familiar with her work, it’s a must have. For those of you just discovering Pie, you're starting at the top!

So Little Has Changed
Review by Lucky Boyd

Now and again, one can feel like a latecomer to the party. It can be so obvious that something wonderful has been missed. It might invoke the question, “Where have I been.” And, while enlightening, it can be almost embarrassing that you didn’t arrive on time. Take that feeling into listening to an album called SO LITTLE HAS CHANGED. Realize now that the pickers on the album have been around long enough for you to know who they are. You’ve probably even heard their work before, but yet, you might not know any of them by name. Name or not, you will now know them by their music. Their fearless leader, Taylor Pie, is not a newcomer to this scene. None of the pickers are up-and-coming, guitar shredding, next-new-thing slingers, either. No, this bunch has seen some great times in some great places and recorded with some great folks. But now, here they are, together again, and guess what.. so little has changed. Veterans for sure, but once you bite into this music, you will realize that Taylor Pie can hold her own vocally with anyone singing today. She can stand lyrically next to any writer you can name, and these musicians, often with just ad lib noodles, have been able to record one of the most masterfully orchestrated studio pieces around. I experienced the disc through headphones, which I might suggest, is an awesome way to listen to this record. The engineering is genius through out, taking simple, tasteful performances and sitting you right in the middle of them. Each instrumentation, each fill, each solo, is another object, seemingly floating at you as if in an underwater sea of beauty; methodical, enlivening, and perfect in form. A number of co-writes are peppered in with Taylor Pie’s personal offerings, and the list of pickers is certainly known by those who know, but it’s time that music fans get a taste of what’s been behind the curtain for so long. Introduce yourself to Taylor Pie. Once you know that so little has changed, you will wish you had arrived at the party much earlier.

Absolutely stunning!
I played this CD for a room full of friends after dinner. There were 10 of us. It was like Taylor Pie and all the musicians were in the room with us...like a private concert. I have Jubal and Long Ride Home, but this new release is absolutely stunning! Sounds like Taylor Pie, Dave Pomeroy, Russ Pahl, Eben Wood and Kenny Malone have been playing together for years. A very confortable feel to the whole CD. Thanks!! This is now one of my favorite CDs to listen to. My favorite cut is Cypress Lake...written by Taylor Pie and Bob Alan. There's even a video of this song on YouTube. You can see all the musicians and the famed Jack's Track's studio. The title cut So Little Has Changed is one of the best anti-war songs I've ever heard. Whatever your political affiliation, it will touch you. Sunny Side Of The Moon had us all laughing and singing along. I could go on about each and every cut, but listen for yourself. WOW! This is awesome! Buy it...you'll like it!

Such memories...
Never can we get too much Pie... and that's the truth. Good honest home grown music that will touch so many cords in all listeners heart...

Couple of these take me back a few years... To the Red Lion and Woodies, The Stockbridge Train Station, to the NOW convention in 79 or 80 where you did Full Grown Fool and others @ Uconn Torrington . Of course Ocean of Lonely and Jar of Kisses. I'm still waiting for you to record Rusty Green Eyes...

Love ya sweetie... keep them coming!

Nancy Law

Awesome
Pie has done it again! Just like a good wine, she gets better and better!!! Can't wait to see what she does next!
