The network will celebrate Angel’s rising star with the broadcast premiere of her first music video, “Like You Do,” Saturday, January 16,on “VH1 Top 20 Countdown.” She will perform on the network’s series “Tough Love” Sunday, January 17, and the video will enter VH1 rotation beginning Monday, January 18.

Billboard magazine hailed “Like You Do” for its “breezy, sentimental pop” and the “sassier tone” of lyrics that are “striking in their assertion of conflicted desire,” while the Associated Press called the album “one of the top debuts of the year.”  As a “VH1 You Oughta Know” Artist on the Rise, Taylor joins the esteemed ranks of Amy Winehouse, The Fray and label-mate Adele.

Angel spent most of 2009 on the road in support of Love Travels – opening for the likes of Adele, Brett Dennen, Kate Voegele, Brandi Carlile and Five For Fighting – and resumes touring this month with a series of promotional performances, in-store appearances and college campus visits.

She made her television debut October 17, 2009when she performed “Like You Do” on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, and her music has been featured on prime time television hits like “One Tree Hill” and “90210.”

Love Travels was released in September 2009,and first single “Make Me Believe” has already been downloaded more than a half-million times. “Fresh and honeydew-sweet…her glowing pop tunes will win over fans of both Corinne Bailey Rae and Colbie Caillat,” says People magazine, who gave the album a three-out-of-four stars review.

Billboard got it right when they dubbed the 21-year-old singing/songwriting sensation one of their 15 Artists to Watch in 2009 – and she remains one to watch in 2010, when Love Travels promises to take Angel Taylor to even greater heights.
