Pauline Taylor - Siren EP
Format: 7" Picture Sleeve
Cat: RRR 008
Ramrock Red Records are proud to present acclaimed singer/songwriter, Pauline Taylor and her hauntingly powerful four track ‘Siren’ EP. Showcasing her soaring, stripped back, grassroots, earthy vocals, the EP is reminiscent of a long lost Alan Lomax recording with rhythmic arrangements which only serve to highlight Pauline’s unshakeable, pitch perfect harmonies. This is a truly remarkable release that will shake you to your core with its honesty, purity and authenticity – Ms. Taylor is at the very top of her game.
Pauline Taylor is the UK recording artist who came to recognition as the lead vocalist on the singles ‘Love Love Love, Here I Come’ by Rollo Goes Mystic, and ‘Let this be a Prayer’ by Rollo Goes Spiritual. Both groups are pseudonyms for producer Rollo Armstrong, a member of the band, Faithless.
Pauline Taylor was one of the primary lead female vocalists for Faithless as well as performing guest vocals on both of Dido's albums and her song writing skills have been requested by artists including Melanie Chisholm, Paolo Nutini and One Eskimo.
In 1999, her song "Addicted", originally released as a solo B-side track to her single "Come Down", was reworked by Faithless. The new version retained Taylor's vocal performance, while adding a new rap by Maxi Jazz. The song was renamed "Addictive" and featured in both the film and soundtrack of ‘Cruel Intentions’.
In the same year, Taylor released a self-titled solo album on Cheeky Records, which spawned the underground club hit single, ‘Constantly Waiting’. The track was remixed by Rollo Armstrong and Sister Bliss. In 2005, she self-released an album of new material, ‘A Simple Life’, which included the track, ‘Solo Flying Mystery Man’, which also featured on the Faithless' ‘Back to Mine’ compilation album.
Taylor signed with the independent record label, Fred, and recorded and released her third album, ‘Up’, in 2007 which contained the single of the same name. Currently, Pauline’s song writing skills are showcased on the new Beverley Knight track ‘Now or Never’ which is riding high on BBC Radio 2’s playlist. Following on from the Ramrock Red Records release of the ‘Siren’ EP, Pauline is already working on her forthcoming LP so expect to be listening to new music soon.
