Some things were just meant to be. When Rachel Taylor and Trevor Kelly were working at a music store in Tacoma, Washington, both felt like outcasts. They quickly developed a friendship, sharing stories and realizing they both were musically inclined. He Is We quickly formed. The duo’s first collaboration was a track called “Such a Beautiful Sound” followed by “Pardon Me” which began to draw a lot of attention online. The two began writing more and more songs and took to the road and began joining bands in 2009. By 2010, He Is We recorded and released “My Forever.”
I was asked to review the album and I just love it! The music is along the lines of Colbie Caillat and Elizabeth and the Catapults. This is the sort of stuff that Lillith Fair lovers will eat up. Taylor’s voice is clear, soulful and powerful. The lyrics are heartfelt. It is easy listening with wonderful mellow songs mixed with playful upbeat songs.
My favorite song on the album is “Happily Ever After,” with my favorite lyric of “We all have a story to tell.” We do all have a story to tell, and He Is We does a great job of telling theirs. This duo is off to a fantastic start and I only see things getting better for them.
