about

At age 26, Cassie Taylor is already a veteran musician. She's spent a decade playing bass and singing on stage and in the studio with her father, modern-day blues innovator Otis Taylor. Now she stakes her own claim as an artist of intelligence, power and soul, drawing on a wide swath of influences – spanning centuries, continents and cultures – to create her own indelible and utterly modern sound.

With influences ranging from a New Orleans second line to West African psychedelic rock, the album's 12 original songs – all written and arranged by Taylor – are the work of a truly 21st century musical omnivore. From the record's lead track, "Ol' Mama Dean (Part 1)," which opens with drums and theremin, to the wistful piano closer "Again," Taylor proves to be a gifted, independent-minded songwriter with a flair for the unexpected and a voice that will haunt your dreams.

Track Name: Ol' Mama Dean (Part 1)
in her darkest hour
she kneeled down to pray
she said lord have mercy on me
i've done things that i do regret
i kneel before you and i repent
and like a caged bird with clipped wings
she knelt to the ground and let out a scream
she prayed for forgiveness and she prayed for faith
tears streaming down her bright red face

and she screamed
freedom freedom
lord have mercy on me
freedom freedom
lord have mercy on me

now in her darkest hour
she kneeled down to pray
she said lord have mercy on me
i've done things that i do regret
i kneel before you and i repent
and like a caged bird with clipped wings
she knelt to the ground and let out a scream
she prayed for forgiveness and she prayed for faith
tears streaming down her bright red face

and she screamed
freedom freedom
lord have mercy on me
freedom freedom
lord have mercy on me
Track Name: Ol' Mama Dean (Part 2)
25 to life for a crime that's way due time
he smacked her one too many and now he pays the price
got a cigarette hanging out the left side of her mouth
would she do it over again she says no way in hell

and that's the story of old mama dean
and that's the story of old mama dean

she was a good woman spoilt by a drinking man
couldn't take it no more and she said it had to end
but he didn't listen just like he always had
so she said a prayer to Jesus and committed her sin

and that's the story of old mama dean
and that's the story of old mama dean

didn't try to run she just sat down on the porch
and she stuck to her story didn't have no remorse
now she in her cell on a frozen january
won't see the light of freedom till she is done and buried

and that's the story of old mama dean
and that's the story of old mama dean
Track Name: Spare Some Love
been feeling mighty down
sun setting on the day
my mind grows weary
feel the burning weight
i once was happy
i felt no pain
i had a roof
to shelter me from the rain

well my coat is torn
seems come undone
my cup is empty
can you spare some love

i'm down and out
not a penny in change
i should leave this place
ain't no use in staying
my soul is weary
and my heart worn
ain't slept in days
no house and no home

well my coat is torn
seems come undone
my cup is empty
can you spare some love

so sit down beside me
spare a second of your time
i don't need a penny
i don't need a dime
and i'll tell you my story
not a word of a lie
it's a tale of sadness
and a wasted life

well my coat is torn
seems come undone
my cup is empty
can you spare some love
Track Name: Out Of My Mind
oh you're driving me wild
and out of my mind

3 o clock in the morning
and i'm lying in bed
visions of you are dancing
through my head
intoxicated i'm
under your curse
not a wink of sleep now baby
i just toss and turn

let the fools run in
let the blind lead the blind
cause i just can't get him
out of my mind
i just can't get him
out of my mind
i just can't get him
out of my mind
got to have him in my life


i called my girlfriend
and she said "what's the rush? "
"there ain't no reason to be
falling in love"
well wait a minute
some day girl you will see
pretty boy gonna come around
and knock you off your feet

let the fools run in
let the blind lead the blind
cause i just can't get him
out of my mind
i just can't get him
out of my mind
i just can't get him
out of my mind
got to have him in my life


i wanna
hold him
i wanna
kiss him
i wanna
tell him
that i got-to got-to got-to
got-to have him in my life

oh you know
i got to have him
in my life
oh i got to have him
in my life
oh i got to have him
in my life
you know
i got to make him mine
Track Name: Lay My Head On Your Pillow
it's been a long day
so much to do
got to cook and clean
but i love looking after you

and i'm going to lay my head on your pillow
fall asleep

it's been a long week
got our bills to pay
no matter how hard we work
can't seem to get away

and i'm going to lay my head on your pillow
fall asleep

it's been a long month
it seems we've come so far
taking on responsibilities
spending too much time in the car

and i'm going to lay my head on your pillow
fall asleep

it's been a long year
change has come and gone
brought us new excitement
and purchased us a home

and i'm going to lay my head on your pillow
fall asleep

it's been a long life
the children are all grown
the days are getting cooler
nights are getting long

and i'm going to lay my head on your pillow
drift asleep
Track Name: New Orleans
somewhere off bourbon
some seek sex some seek love
but when you turn the corner
something wicked this way comes
only brave dare to enter
the alley's damp and dark
fishbones in the garbage
and it smells like broken hearts

the eastern winds are blowing
and i can hear the blind-man grinning
got an evil spell for you
and i'm going down
to new orleans

snake snails and puppy dog tails
be hanging on the wall
black cat in the walk way
and the doorman's ten foot tall
these streets have seen things
that people wouldn't believe
enough to drive a sane man crazy
the haunting of a babies dreams

the eastern winds are blowing
and i can hear the blind-man grinning
got an evil spell for you
and i'm going down
to new orleans


they say be careful what you wish for
cause dreams often come true
but not all the bad in the whole wide world baby
could compare to the evil that you do

so i'm going down
i'm going down down down
to new orleans
new orleans baby
i'm going down down down
Track Name: No Ring Blues
i cook your meals
i wash your clothes
i kiss your neck
i rub your toes
i clean your house
i scrub your floor
give you want you want baby
but you still want more
and i do everything
to keep you satisfied
so put a ring on my finger baby
make me your bride

well i don't need diamonds
just a band will do
but you're still standing there
nothing i can do
so tell me please
just tell me what i can say
are you gonna make this forever
or is this just another day
and i do everything
to keep you satisfied
so put a ring on my finger baby
make me your bride

well i never should have
shacked up with you
cause now you got the cow
gonna drink the milk too
so tell me please
just tell me what i can do
cause you're the one i love
and baby i chose you
and i did everything
to keep my baby satisfied
he put a ring on my finger baby
made me his bride
Track Name: No No
woke up this morning
you weren't here
called you on the telephone
and you acted like you didn't give-a-care
came home late last night
asked you where you were
a million different excuses
but i know that you were with her


you don't want to give me
no love, no love
you're too cool you're too cool
oh and i never liked the cold
oh no
oh no
oh no

asked me out to dinner
you were 20 minutes late
what you forgot to tell me was
that you were on another date
want you to commit
but you just won't settle down
cause why would you start walking now
when you could be running around

no love, no love

but what i didn't realize
is that you would put me through this hell
thought it was me
turned out to be you
cause i called your ex-girlfriends
and they said this is just something that you do

you don't want to give me
no love, no love
you're too cool you're too cool
and i never liked the cold

trouble seems to find me
no matter how i try
when your heart is beating
ain't no good place to hide
know i should do right
know i should behave
the wrongs i am doing
it goes deeper than my grave

oh and you
you make it hard on me baby
so here
i go again

and i'm trying hard
not to cross the line
cause the good i am feeling
ain't worth the pain of a good man's wife
well i can't help but thinking
maybe this was meant to be
i maybe have your heart
but she has got the ring

oh and you
you make it hard on me baby
so here
i go again

the things you say baby
bring me to my knees
but when you're living a double life
it's just a little hard to believe

the things you say baby
i want them to be true
i want to wear white baby
but you got me wearing blue

oh and I get I was dreaming
wishing you were mine
i wanted all your love
but i don't want to do the time

oh and you
you make it hard on me baby
so here
i go again
