About Taylor Lang

Born and raised outside a small village on the plains of rural Saskatchewan, Taylor Lang — formerly known as ‘Blaeser’ — started playing music at a young age to pass the time, and never really stopped. His latest album, An Audio Guide to Introspection, was released in 2022, delivering more of the same insight, lyricism, and head-turning guitar work as before.

“I started on piano, picked up drumming and bass, then finally the guitar at age 15. I learned a metric boatload of classic cover tunes and busked outside downtown bars to earn money to go to music festivals. You meet a lot of interesting people that way, and you learn to roll with any audience situation. Somewhere in there, I put my linguistics degree to good use and started writing my own songs and lyrics. On March 3, 2018, a friend of mine showed me the most ridiculously complicated guitar performance I had ever seen — Jon Gomm’s “Passionflower.” I was hooked. I started learning some of that ridiculously complicated guitar stuff the next day. The journey is endless and the impostor syndrome is real. It still manages to get the better of me sometimes, but I’m working on it, because the satisfaction of playing something no one else has ever played is stronger than the doubt. So now, here I am. I play a lot of acoustic guitar, influenced by artists from all over: Jon Gomm. The Tragically Hip. blink-182, City & Colour, Dan Mangan, Ed Sheeran, Passenger, Pink Floyd, Halsey, Arkells, and a thousand more. I write about where I came from and sometimes where I think I’m going. I like to dig deep and expose the beating heart of whatever I’m writing about. My wife and I have a cat and I am responsible for one plant. So far, so good.”
