Record Label: Independent
Format: CD

The Taylor Project album "The Happiest Girl in the Whole Wide Street" was recorded over one weekend in October 2008, in the former RSL Hall in Elmore, country Victoria. This building is also the much-loved second home for some members of the Taylor Project. The Taylor Project’s style of folk/alternative country centres on the theme of traditional ballads, with wily and heartbreaking lyrics like "you've had everyone in town, you'll come back to me next time around" buoyed by vocal harmonies, fiddle, artful shimmers of mandolin, tenor banjo and a great country backline. As seen from the album’s opening track, “Don’t Cry For Me Wangaratta”, Taylor Project songs also follow a bit of a geographic theme, coming back to the fact that humans and their hearts so seldom end up exactly where they had planned: from Ballarat, to Caroline Springs, to Elmore, and all the stories in between. The Taylor Project is most often seen at a variety of great Melbournepubs. They’re also often heard on local radio such as RRR, and have played at the Yackandandah Folk Festival and shows in country Victoria(including the Elmore and Bendigoareas). The Taylor Project features Sarah Taylor (lead vocals, guitar), Liz Taylor (backing vocals, mandolin, violin), Andrew Bonnici (also of Khancoban – on lap steel, banjo), Paul Rawlinson (bass) and Scott Boydle (drums
