Co-Writing!

So…this past week, I got to go to Nashville and meet up with a new friend, a fellow singer-songwriter, Julie Keltonic!

She is a great singer-songwriter and mommy, and in our time together I also got to experience how genuine, kind, and Christ-focused she is. I have heard a lot of negative things about Nashville to be honest…when everyone is hoping to climb the same ladders, I can see how it would bring about some negative experiences. But I was blessed to hang out with this sister who has a ministry-minded motive in all she does there. I hope more of the Christian music industry will take cues from her, because what she is offering both in music and in spirit is exactly what needs to be coming through our radios, er, iPhone speakers.

We met for two afternoons and wrote a song called “Just Passing Through”. One thing we felt we had in common was that just in the past couple of weeks, we have seen devastating loss in the lives around us. While we knew we couldn’t provide a tidy answer for these sufferings, we did have some encouraging thoughts we wanted to explore starting with the lines: “We’re not meant to grow roots, we’re just passing through.” Here’s a little video for you!

Evergreen

Unknown-1

I am empty as a canyon deep, You’re a canyon full

I am waking from a winter sleep, You are evergreen

I am always seeking my way back, You are true north

Always begging for the things I lack, You are royalty

 

I am faltering, You are mountain mighty

I am lost and lame, You’re a roaring lion

I am questions, You are love songs

I am embers, You are a wildfire

 

There will never be another like You

There will never be another like You

There will never be another like You

 

In this song, “Never Be Another”, I am so encouraged to know that as I am clueless and continuously getting it wrong- or lacking vision or wisdom or fire- He is never lacking, He is never weak, He is never even tired.

Exciting News!

Beloved CD outside

Just a quick little update…(Soon I hope to blog about the songs on Beloved and get the lyrics and chords up as well, but today, just a quick word!)

Beloved, the new worship duet EP by Joanna Black and myself, is now available for download on iTunes! Yippee! If you read this and have time, it would be amazing if you could write a little review on iTunes and/or CDBaby for this project. It would genuinely help us a lot!

And second bit of news…We were accepted onto Pandora! Praising the Lord for this, and I’m so thankful for the support of people who “liked” our music from the past so that this was possible. In about 3 months, Beloved songs will be available for listening on Pandora stations. If you haven’t made and cultivated a sweet Lyndsay Taylor channel, I hope you will!

Thanks so much, friends!

Beloved: Our New Worship EP!

Hi Friends!

It is so much fun to get to announce this week that my dear friend, Joanna Black, and I have our new EP in hand. It wasn’t that long ago that we were hanging out in the basement with the piano and cello, singing these new songs for the first time…and now we get to share them with you! YAY!

There’s always so much to do when a new CD comes out and I have only done half of it, but I hope you will find the songs online or come and get a CD from either of us and enjoy! I will soon be posting on my Lyrics page all of the words and chords for the new 6 songs on Beloved, and getting the CD available on Amazon and Lord-willing, Pandora. Also, the songs should be available for download soon on iTunes, and for listening on Spotify and iTunes radio. In the meantime, a great way to purchase the CD or individual songs is to go to http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/lyndsaytaylorandjoannabl You can also find my other CDs on cdbaby.com if you type my name in the search engine. As artists, besides buying a CD in person from us, the most financially beneficial site I sell from is cdbaby.com. (Sometimes people ask me that, so there you go!)

We plan to have our CD release party and concert as well as sell Sister Bridge gifts and Mountain Maid jewelry from Haiti on November 15th, 7 pm, at the Nexus Building in Elizabethtown. You can contact me personally if you need more info or want a CD before then! Thank you for your support! I feel really blessed to get to be a singer songwriter, putting out albums regularly, even if it is to small audiences. I am grateful, grateful, grateful to do what I love and have a way to share it!

New CD Coming Soon

New CDJust a quick word here to say that Joanna Black (www.mjblack.com) and I will be releasing a new EP this Fall! We worked on these songs over the summer–it is a collection of worship songs I have written over the past couple of years. Her husband, Matt, was the producer and sound engineer, and we recorded out in their farmhouse here in Elizabethtown, KY. It is simple and sweet, but I think powerful as well.

There are 6 new duets on it: It Is Well With My Soul, Hallelujah, Never Be Another, Take Me In, Wells, and Love So Sure

And 2 duets from previous recordings: We Come Out Shining, and When Faith Runs Deep

It is titled “Beloved”, and we hope to have it available both for order and on iTunes in October.

Lyrics and Chords

Hey Friends!

Just in case someone comes to this site looking for lyrics/chords to my new CD, here’s the 411. First of all, I haven’t had time yet to type them up and post them. I’m sorry! But when I do have time to type and post them, they will be at www.lyricsandchordsbylyndsay.blogspot.com
Currently, there are lyrics and chords on that site, but none from the new CD. Feel free to ask for specific songs to be put up first by going to my Facebook music page and requesting. Thanks!
