Taylor Hicks Day! New Album "The Distance" On Sale NOW!!

This is it folks! The day we've all been so anxiously waiting for has finally arrived. Taylor's official musical independence day. "The Distance" is being released on his newly minted own label, Modern Whomp Records with the total creative freedom he has fought for so diligently over the years! We win, Clive! We win Simon! We win American Idol!

Taylor, you have put together a magnificent album, starting with the inspiring title track to the smooth soul sound of What's Right Is Right to the gospel leanings of New Found Freedom to the salsa flavor of Once Upon a Lover to the poignant, beautiful lyrics of Maybe You Should to the 70's soul sound of Woman's Gotta Have It with Elliott Yamin.

I'm proud of Taylor for sticking to his guns, being true to his musical roots and not caving in to the mainstream pressures of a very competitive business. Keep on keeping on, Taylor! We're so proud of you! This album is a keeper and will be spinning on my IPod and in my car for months and years to come!

Order "The Distance" Here

I'm happy with the new album. I pretty much like all the songs. I downloaded "Yes We Can" from I-tunes. I like his version of this song also.

I will be buying the other bonus tracks also. I hear that Indescriminate Act of Kindness" is a killer, pure Taylor song.

"Indiscriminate Act of Kindness" is sooooo good. Wait til you hear his voice. It's a killer.

I can't believe that after waiting sooo long Taylor has produced my all-time favorite album(granted I'm only 17). I still haven't heard two of the bonus tracks. "Yes we can" is very good, but from what I've been hearing, "Hide Nor Hair" and "Indiscriminate act of Kindness" will be even better.

I can't wait to hear "Indiscriminate Act of Kindness", Foy Vance's version is great. Very moving song hits a bit personal for me. That's the Target bonus track right?
