CD Review:
Taylor Thompson, a junior at Rodriguez High School in Fairfield, California, who has always been a young man with a mission; winning talent competitions at an early age; performing at state fairs and community events; receiving the Performer Of The Year Award (2007) for the Strive For More Music Showcase; and most recently becoming a member of the selective and prestigious Young Musician's Program at UC Berkeley, now has a message.
His message (which he calls a "rescue song") is a much needed reminder to those facing troubles of any kind: You Are Not Alone.
With a pounding, infectious, radio-ready track by A. Hype!! Production Co. and lush vocal arrangements courtesy of Laniko Music, Taylor aptly demonstrates that he is blessed with the singing and songwriting talent to distinguish and distance him from the competition. Sounding like a seasoned veteran in only his second professional recording, his euphonious tenor conveys confidence and conviction while showcasing skills and growth in an inspirational format that highlights his true identity.
Great job Taylor! A man on a mission with a useful message can rarely be stopped.
