和Angel Taylor坐一块儿，她的魅力跟她的音乐一样。聊到她的首砖《Love Travels》发行的激动心情时，显然AT——这位20岁歌手兼创作——很乐意谈论这张专辑的灵感。但是很快，她分享的故事都难以跟她的才华相称：专辑里《Love Travels》的12首歌，不仅仅是她个人写给音乐的信，而是12个有血有肉的故事，经历，我们会经历过，分享过。这些人名也许不一样，故事依旧。
Sitting next to Angel Taylor, her charisma is as palpable as her music itself. Talking with her about the passionate swirl of her debut release, Love Travels, the 20 year-old singer-songwriter is quick to share stories about her inspirations, but those stories fast become secondary to the true magic of her talent as a songwriter: The 12 tracks
on Love Travels are more than just personal missives that Angel Taylor has set to music, they are living and breathing experiences that we have all shared. The names may change, but the stories remain the same.
"Anyone who has ever wanted to be loved very deeply by someone, but hasn't, will totally be able to grab hold of these songs," says Taylor. "That's what this album is about - wanting it so bad, not having it, and wondering why... It's a lot of questions."
And while Taylor doesn't pretend to have any answers, there's no escaping how good it feels to get engulfed by her insecurities, romanced by her vulnerability, and swooned by her tender lyrics and swaying melodies. Feeling self-conscious about listening to love songs written by a girl barely removed from her teens? Try and remember when love hurt
the most, that high school spark that never flickered into a flame, or the flame that fanned out as quickly as it flared, making everything around you ache and throb. In a lot of ways, the love Angel Taylor is writing about is the most pure, untainted by a lifetime of experiences that too often devour the idealism of the helpless romantic buried in us
"I don't think it's got anything to do with age or experience, because I think your heart speaks much faster than you might imagine. I mean, I don't even know that I can say I've fallen in love, but it's still not surprising for me to speak or sing about love like I do, because I've felt it... I've felt how I think it's supposed to feel, and whether that
was really love or not, I've still meant it with all my heart."
