Choose Yourself: Songwriter Taylor Rae Reflects on Her "Mad Twenties"
Her new full-length album Mad Twenties is out now, and we caught up with the singer-songwriter this week from her West Coast tour.
Today on High Plains Morning, we had a chance to “just be” with the gifted singer-songwriter Taylor Rae. Zooming from her home state of California, we checked in with the fairly-recent Texan that calls Austin home now. Her “gently chaotic” new album, Mad Twenties, blends the bitter and the bold of the last eight years of her life. Taylors songs evoke such specific memories and the lessons learned, yet every story she tells seems to thump with a recognition: “wait, is she singing about me?” (Hey, I guess we all have a wild ride during our second decade.)
We talked about Paul Simon, live music cities, touring with Pokey LaFarge, lost love, overheated road trips, and more.

We look forward to snagging her for an in-studio or Living Room Concert the next time she’s rollin’ through the High Plains!
