Sunny Taylor

Just four songs and 20 minutes long, the latest from this Indiana singer-songwriter offers four distinct stories and asks one overarching question: “When do you get to getting over it?” That line comes from “Paper Tiger (Getting Over It),” a song whose narrator really ought to grab a coffee with the protagonist from “Trucker.” That one is about someone who drives all night, pondering regrets while the rest of the world sleeps. Maybe she has a kid—and maybe it’s the youngster from “Highview Drive,” who recalls the devastating effects of her parents’ divorce. Obviously these aren’t happy songs, but they are delicate and moving. Like the best country-folk songbirds, Taylor makes the sour taste sweet.
