Travis Taylor is a worship leader at Calvary Church Of Pacific Palisades in California and this is not his first album, having fronted a band Tenthousand Flying a few years back. Produced by Dwayne Larring, former guitarist with Sonicflood, 'You Have Loved' matches melody with intensity and Taylor has managed to create a worshipful album which is artistically, musically and spiritually satisfying. Not an easy feat in these days of an over-saturated worship scene. My favourites include the perfect pop of "The Man I'm Meant To Be" and the slow burning build up of intensity on "Come Again". The instant poppiness of "I Found Love" is an immediate hit in my head whilst "Change My Mind" works superbly too. Mixing up rock, pop and Americana influences, the result is an album that deserves to break out from its indie release to a wider audience.

I absolutely agree that this music needs widespread distribution. I have known Travis Taylor's music for several years and have always thought to myself that the right people must not have heard this yet, otherwise it would be huge!
