Best of What's Next 2009: Kim Taylor [Musician]

Hometown: Cincinnati, Ohio
Album: The Greatest Story EP
For Fans Of: Cat Power, Cowboy Junkies, Over the Rhine

Taylor’s connections to fellow Ohioans Over the Rhinesongs—and perhaps an Over The Rhine collaboration, too. “Karin and I,” Taylor says, “have increasingly been finding more ways to sing together.”
What’s Next? (Fountains of Wayne, Howie Day, Aimee Mann) and released The Greatest Story EP. That project is part of a bigger picture that I’ll finish and release as a full length,” Taylor says. “Right now, I’m staying close to my hometown and self-producing a new project. The working title is The Archer. I’m playing a lot of instruments on this one—a lot of piano and organ and Rhodes. It’s a lot of fun and it’s really renewing my spirit. It’s where I need to be right now. I’m hoping to release it by the end of 2009.”
