Experience the technicolor songwriting of TAYLR at the legendary King Eddy on Friday, August 18. They’ll be joined by Kate Stevens and Emily Slaney to perform songs from their new project, Layla June. R&B artist ZENON will open the show.
TAYLR is a singer-songwriter based in Moh’kins’tsis (Calgary, Alberta) that has the control and skill of a trained vocalist while maintaining the warmth and fun-loving nature of their inner child. TAYLR is no stranger to self reflection and deep internal exploration that bold, technicolor songwriting is born from.
Taking bits and pieces of R&B, jazz, folk, and indie pop, “the thinking person’s songwriter” succeeds in creating hearty melodic recipes in which you can taste the earnestness in every spoonful.
