Singer-songwriter, Tawnya Reynolds, released her third album on February 1, 2016. The aptly named 8 Track contains eight songs, over half of which were written and co-produced by this talented artist.
It’s easy from the first song, “Wander,” how Reynolds landed a spot on the fourth season of NBC’s The Voice. She draws you in immediately with her silky vocals, and keeps you there with prominent mandolin and fiddle alongside clever lyrics about leaving love behind to follow your dreams; wondering about the consequences as she wanders.
The albums current, steel guitar driven, single, “The B-Side,” tells of the longing for “what ain’t, but what ought to be.” Relatable to anyone wanting something more than the ordinary in their music and in their day to day experiences, it’s a real highlight. 8 Track closes with “Southwest,” a beautiful song about the peace found in coming home to familiar places and faces “when this guitar gets heavy on my back.”
With country radio beginning to embrace more female artists than they have in years, program directors would be wise to include Tawnya Reynolds in the mix. You can add her to your mix by visiting her website
