With her debut album ‘Backseat Driver’ set to release early 2019 and its first 2 singles, ‘Take Me Out Dancing’ and ‘Nashville’ finding success at Canadian country radio, Taylor-Rae is paving a name for herself in the music industry with her heartfelt songwriting and powerful vocals.
Taylor-Rae, grew up to the sounds of country music and draws a great deal of inspiration from the story telling and sincerity of the classic country artists for her own music. With a kick of modern country/rock fusion, she has created a sound unlike any other.
Originally from Edmonton, Taylor-Rae made her way to Vancouver in 2012 to attend University and continue pursuing her musical career. Since moving west, she continues to build her resume on the coast and was named the winner of the 2018 BCCMA “Breakthrough Project” competition with her accompanying band “The Backseat Drivers”.
Taylor-Rae also performs with the Top Line Vocal Collective, a contemporary soul choir, and alongside JUNO nominated gospel artist Warren Dean Flandez. She has performed across North America playing venues including the 2017 JUNO’s, the Bluebird Cafe, the Big Valley Jamboree and Rogers Arena, as well as Rogers Place in her hometown of Edmonton.
