“…Taylor has such versatility and talent…her undeniable ability to command the stage in any setting makes for a smooth transition from genre to genre and mesmerizes audiences with her talent and trance like voice.” ~ OsoyoosToday, Natasha Purcell
From folk to country, and rock to blues, Roots Rock artist and songwriter Taylor James has been delighting music lovers since the mid-90’s when she emerged on the Vancouver, BC music scene from her hometown of Callander, ON.
Her rock-solid musicianship and warm charisma has led her to sharing the stage and opening for Blue Rodeo, Chilliwack, Ronnie Hawkins, Colin James, Meatloaf, Jeff Healy, Jim Byrnes, Ten Years After and Hubert Sumlin to name a few. She has toured in Poland, Germany, Ireland and the US including show tours for the Canadian Forces in Greece, Sarajevo, Egypt and the Persian Gulf, along side Patricia Conroy, Shaun Verreault (Wide Mouth Mason), Aaron Pritchett, David Gogo, Deanna Johnston (Rock Star Inxs), and comedian Michael McDonald.
You can trace her journey through the musical spectrum of her 6 albums which feature an interesting and inspiring collection of original songs, as well as covers, which have been igniting her live show and the Vancouver music scene for the past few decades.
To date, Taylor is busier than ever managing her music career, having just launched season one of The Taylor James Show, as well as touring her new album ‘Backbone’ which was released Oct 29, 2018 and already has 70k+ streams on Spotify.
Be sure to catch her at a show where she’ll likely be performing a selection of her originals mixed in with some crowd favourites such as Led Zeppelin’s “Ramble On” while sipping red wine and sharing in the moment with her audience.
