For Immediate Release:

June 2, 2000 (Minneapolis, MN) - Silent Planet Records announces the signing
of Terry Scott Taylor.

Terry Scott Taylor is considered one of the most prolific and critically
acclaimed songwriters performing today.  He is well known for his work as a
solo artist and as the main writer, vocalist and producer for The Lost Dogs
and Daniel Amos.  Now, Terry has signed a multi-album deal with the
acoustic-based Silent Planet label, as he embarks on a new journey with a
brand new record and focus.

The new CD, entitled Avocado Faultline, was produced and mixed by
multi-instrumentalist Phil Madeira (who has worked with Pierce Pettis, Rich
Mullins, Alison Krauss, Phil Keaggy & Vigilantes of Love) and mastered by
Buddy Miller (known for his work with Emmy Lou Harris).  The album includes
performances by Steve Hindalong, Jimmy A, Rikki Michele, Phil Madeira and

Avocado Faultline is an acoustic based project that will appeal not only to
Terry's existing fan base but also to a whole new audience that may not be
familiar with his earlier work. The music is a unique blend of pop, rock,
Americana, and country.  The album is highlighted by heartfelt lyrics and
songs that have a great mix of intelligent artistic expression and commercial
accessibility  -- those very qualities which recently landed Terry a position
as a BMG Entertainment songwriter. Avocado Faultline will be released in July
with a special performance at the Cornerstone Festival and an official street
date of Tuesday, July 25th.

Label director Tony Shore commented on the signing saying, "Both Steve West
(Label President) and myself are very excited to be working with Terry Taylor
and to have an artist of this caliber on the label.  He fits perfectly with
our vision to combine art and spiritual truths.  Terry and I have known each
other for a long time, and when I found out that he wanted to do a more
acoustic based project, I knew it would be perfect for Silent Planet.  We
feel that this is some of his best work and has the most potential of
anything he's done to expand his fan base.  He's got new management, a fresh
outlook and is going to tour in support of this release.  We have big plans
for this record."

Said Jonathan Feavel of Warm & Filled, Terry's management company, "We're
very much looking forward to a long term relationship with Silent Planet.
It's great when a record company is not only excited about an artist but has
committed to realizing a shared vision.  We're hopeful that this is just the
beginning of a mutually beneficial relationship.  We're looking forward to
the ride."

Silent Planet Records is an acoustic/folk based label that strives for
artistic integrity through intelligent and spiritually provocative lyrics.
