"Quotes About the Album"

In these times we could use a little heart and soul and JT's latest is all heart and soul. Warm wrap around you sounds with that velvety voice. A very beautiful record ” - Recording Artist Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo
Julian Taylor‘s new album The Ridge is beautifully recorded, performed and sung, but the real triumph is the raw honesty at the heart of these stories.” - Recording Artist - Rhett Miller of The Old 97's
“With the release of ‘The Ridge’, Julian Taylor has cemented his station as one of Canada’s great songwriters. The arrangements are lush and thoughtful, and are a warm backdrop for Julian’s natural storytelling. ‘The Ridge’ captures a songwriter in his stride, and is worthy of countless listens.” - Justin Rutledge ” - Justin Rutledge (Canadian Singer-Songwriter)
The Ridge” is hazy and comforting. Rich acoustics, spacious piano, and delicate percussion are all selfless in their support of Julian’s precise, thoughtful wordplay. These songs were dug for. You can feel it in the title track and amidst the more vulnerable recordings “Human Race” and “Over the Moon”. One of the standouts is the timbre of Julian’s voice. At times reminiscent of Neil Diamond, the title track presents a haunting incarnation of the late Willie Dunn. The songs are delivered honestly and it presents itself as an easy keep amongst today’s Americana.” - William Prince - (Recording Artist)
Listening to this record by Julian Taylor is refershing. It's the most Julian I've ever heard him and it takes me back to the days when I first discovered him live with just his acoustic guitar. It's as inspiring now as it was then. To see an artist unapologetically be themselves is exciting and I can't wait for him to share this with body of work” - AHI (Recording Artist)
