Track review of "Squeeze Me"

Pam Taylor: Steal Your Heart With a voice full of that South Carolina Piedmont Pine, singer/songwriter Pam Taylor begins her ascent to escape velocity from being a local and regional talent to a major one. She has been knocking at the door, starting with the release of the 2011 Hot Mess by the short-lived Pam Taylor Band. That recording revealed a heady talent, but Taylor had some growing to do as an artist. In 2015, Taylor and one Robert Johnson, Jr. (no, not that one) released the excellent Dirty Southern Soul (Self Produced) after which Taylor dealt with inevitable life circumstances that distracted her from writing and performing.

That was then and this is now. Taylor is presently putting together her third release, providing "Squeeze Me" as a teaser. Where her Hot Mess stayed close to the blues and Dirty Southern Soul branched out into R&B, "Squeeze Me" reveals Taylor's country roots. Her songwriting is crisp and guitar playing exceptional. She is full of tempered sass and a curiously innocent self-confidence that is refreshing. "Squeeze Me" is superior to similar music made by a varitety of contemporary "mainstream" country artists. All Taylor needs is support, for her to achieve that escape velocity into something greater.

Personnel: Pam Taylor: vocals, guitar; Robert Johnson: bass; Jason Atkins: keyboards; Jim Brock: drums, percussion.
