“NOT HERE, NOT TODAY”
December 18, 2015
Dulcie Taylor’s career began with a bang and she’s never looked back! At the age of ten she left her ukulele unattended on the porch and it was quickly demolished by the posterior of a clueless teenager. Fortunately for Dulcie her mother had already identified the musical gift her daughter possessed and for Christmas that year gave her a guitar to replace the ukulele that had been so unceremoniously destroyed.
Little did her mother know that this gift would spawn a musical career that would see Dulcie release six full length albums of increasing critical acclaim, including her newest release Wind Over Stone. Along the way she has had the opportunity to share the stage with a long and impressive list of artists, including Jerry Lee Lewis, Asleep at the Wheel, Guy Clark, John Gorka, and Kathy Mattea.
She’s also collected an impressive share of awards and charting ranging from multiple Wammie Awards (Washington Area Music Award), substantial national AAA airplay, and TOP PICK MP3 from The Washington Post. In addition to crafting song lyrics, Dulcie Taylor is a writer of poetry and prose. She served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Poetry Series at Washington, D.C.’s Folger Shakespeare Library when living in the DC area. This expansive wealth of cultural background has also embedded itself in her music, creating songs that transcend the simple entertainment factor and deliver a bigger message.
Take, for example, her newest single for “Not Here, Not Today.” The song dissects a people’s history of the United States and the sometimes complicated values we hold dear, most specifically “freedom.” The video features Dulcie performing in a simple warehouse setting, while projected across the room are scenes of a mixed history of the United States. Old black and white footage of many of America’s pivotal moments such as the civil rights movement, World War II, Vietnam War protests and more. Coupled with the lyrics the final presentation is one that is thought-provoking and complex, allowing the viewer to see the American dream and values through a different prism thanks to Dulcie Taylor.
