Pop-Soul Crooner and VH1’s latest “You Oughta Know Artist”, RUSSELL TAYLOR announces the release of his upcoming third album, “War of Hearts”. #WOH will be released on Tuesday, June 24, 2014, via all digital music retail outlets.
“On this journey, I have had some really tough lessons about the variable definition of friendship and family, recovering from broken promises, the importance of accepting imperfections and the truth about love & its bipolar tendencies,” mentions Russell.
“Little did I know that I was also setting out to find myself; a self that I never knew needed to be found. All of my life I have followed a perceived blueprint to success: go to school, get good grades, go to church, get a job(s) make some money and be a good man. Follow this path and it will yield you happiness abound. That is my ideal heart. But, unfortunately, the same paradigm doesn’t apply to a successful life in the creative arts. There is no blueprint–no real plan. In my creative path, I am selfish, I am hotheaded, my life is unpredictable & my love is jagged & irrational. This is my artist heart; authentically imperfect”, he adds.
“I have been at war with myself for so long but didn’t know it. And realistically, this war will probably never end. But at least now I can acknowledge that it exists. Knowing is half the battle. You, I, we saved me…in this War of Hearts,” concludes Russell.
