Demetria Taylor was born to sing the blues, as she is the daughter of the legendary Chicago blues guitarist, Eddie Taylor! The songs on this album are a balance of traditional blues and modern R&B, with some written by her blues royalty family, some by fellow musicians and bandmates Mike Wheeler and Larry Williams, one by the venerable Magic Sam, and two by Demetria herself.

This second Delmark record for Demetria is a strong and exciting follow up to her wildly successful Delmark debut, “Bad Girl,” which was nominated as best new artist debut in the 2012 BLUES MUSIC AWARDS. Demetria’s much-anticipated new recording features the superior support from fellow Delmark artists Mike Wheeler Band and guitar star Carlos Showers, who often back her at her frequent gigs.

Very special guests include the legendary vocalist Deitra Farr on one track, written by Demetria’s mom, Vera Taylor, “Blues Early This Morning” and the guitarist Billy Flynn, who supplies his amazing guitar work on the aforementioned track, in addition to her dad, Eddie Taylor’s “83 Highway.” As Demetria says, and we believe her, “IT’S MY TIME!”

Demetria Taylor is proud to be the new recipient of the KoKo Taylor “Queen of the Blues” Award in 2022 given by the Jus’ Blues Foundation.
