VIDEO PREMIERE: Lee Taylor Shows Off Robust Vocals On “Wild Woman,” Alongside The Dap-Kings

Lee Taylor doesn’t have a big discography or countless videos on YouTube, but what she lacks in online media is reinforced by boisterous vocal chops and spot-on charisma. And yes, she’s got more musical game than most “influencers” out on their showy platforms. Her live album Wild Woman, due out Friday, March 12th exemplifies this vocal force who rings comparisons from Dionne Warwick, Lily Allen, and Joss Stone.

Wild Woman was recorded live on October 9, 2019, at The HiFi Loft in NYC, with an incredible backing band of talented musicians that includes The Dap-Kings, Mark Ronson’s studio session players, and some of Lee’s friends like rock and blues artist Nicole Atkins. Produced by Lee and Binky Griptite, the group bottled and corked lightning with their second rehearsal – the actual show. 

“Wild Woman” – is a mission statement to all women, no matter what they are – for it only matters for who they are. “In a misogynistic, queerphobic, transphobic world, “Wild Woman” celebrates wildness as a form of survival. It articulates a triumph on our terms. When we collectively step into our power and find steadfast fierceness, revolution follows.” says Taylor

Lee’s solo appearances include The Blue Note and Lincoln Center in New York City. As a Resistance Revival Chorus member, she has performed with Phillip Glass at Carnegie Hall and with Jim James on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. With her popular all-woman band, Frilucha, Lee performs at several popular New York venues, including Dyke Bar Takeover and The Django. In December 2018, she released her first single, “My First Divorced Christmas,” now available on the Daptone Soul Super Store. “Wild Woman” was also featured on the compilation record, This Joy, released on Ani DiFranco’s Righteous Babe Records back in Fall 2020. 

Check out the video for “Wild Woman” directed by critically acclaimed film director Michelle Cameron. There is a nostalgic big ’70s soul vibe throughout as Taylor plays the part of various heroes all ready to profess power and independence. Surely a powerful and emblematic theme song in the marking we got here…
