Hiss Golden Messenger - Quietly Blowing In
Written, arranged, and produced by bandleader/songwriter M.C. Taylor, the album is the follow-up to 2019’s critically acclaimed release Terms of Surrender, which has been nominated for a 2021 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album.
"Quietly Blowing It" is an intimate and introspective offering that finds Taylor ruminating on themes of growing up, alienation, obligation, hope, purpose, family, class, self-discovery, healing, and rebuilding, fashioned with impressionistic tones. He says the record “feels like the most personal album that I’ve made because I’m not trying to explain anything to anyone except myself.” Taylor reckons with these turbulent times in deeply personal terms and seeks to inspire listeners to do the same.
