Mickey Taelor returns with more smooth sophistication, accompanied by frequent collaborator and Grammy nominated producer, Willie B. for a spacey and progressive follow up to her Hiigrade Vol. 2 project that had the charts burning up overseas, “XYZ” (Julie’s Song). According to Willie B., “This whole process was creatively a very uncomfortable situation for everyone that’s been involved in making this project a success. We’ve helped each other grow as musicians through this whole experience. So what we want to do is share that growth with the world, And that’s what we are most excited about. Just for the people to hear this music.”” If you’re feeling “XYZ” above, stay tuned for Mickey’s next project, Essentials dropping mid-Spring. The project was produced 95% by Willie B. and promises more progressive sounds, which I’m all for.
