For Taylor Vick of Boy Scouts, writing and recording songs is a little like journaling, a way to make sense of the present and shuttle it off into the past. But her intimate compositions soon attracted a strong following of listeners. She may have been writing for herself, but she struck a far-reaching chord. Now Vick has released a stripped down version of the Roger Miller song “A World So Full Of Love”; composed remotely with her brother Travis who contributes backing vocals.
"Travis is a big Roger Miller fan,” Vick explained. “He covered his song ‘Not in Nottingham’ from the Robin Hood soundtrack which is how I got into his music. I heard ‘A World So Full of Love’ for the first time a few weeks ago and was immediately struck by how devastating the lyrics start out, paired with how bare the recording is.”
