Hayley Taylor’s One Foot in Front of the Other puts a smile on your face and some pep in your step. You fall in love with her spunky and energetic lyrics.

With a voice comparable to Ingrid Michaelson, Taylor gives a fresh voice to the singer-songwriter genre. While it’s understandably tough taking a chance these days on a new artist, Taylor won’t disappoint. She’s got one of those voices where you just can’t turn the CD player off.

Among Taylor’s finest on the album are “Felt Like Love” and “No More Wishing.” The album flows extremely well, so when Taylor decides to drop a heavier song, it holds its weight.
