"Philly-bred singer-songwriter Russell Taylor sings the praises of his favorite soul men, unfurling an honor list that incudes Donny Hathaway, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie Wonder. It doesn't take long for Taylor to prove he has the talent to match his R&B tastes."

Russell Taylor has the educational pedigree and the street cred to bridge the chasm between the block and yacht. His musical C.V. is formidable – he's shared stages with some of his generation's most respected musicians, including Mary J. Blige, Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, India Arie, Mint Condition, Tamia, Rahsaan Patterson, Jaguar, Eric Roberson, Lalah Hathaway, and Omar. With this kind of resume, it should be no surprise that Taylor regularly woos audiences from Paris to L.A., where they swoon over his soulful voice, pristine good looks, seductive smile, and genuinely affable personality.
Taylor's sophomore album, Confessional, came out in 2009. In the midst of times that are trying both economically and emotionally, the album revives the true meaning of sacrifice, giving sensually starved listeners an intimate view of romantic relationships draped in musical decadence. Open your ears and receive this blessing.
