Great vocals are best paired with equally great lyrics and vibrant, relatable songs. For singer/songwriter Taylor-Rae, that is what she does best.
Rising fast on the Canadian country music scene after garnering a 2018 BC Country Music Association win for The Breakthrough Project and 2019 nomination for Emerging Artist of the Year, Taylor-Rae is gaining fans strong and steady across the country while she works on brand new music.
Now working with veteran producer Dan Swinimer (JoJo Mason, Madeline Merlo), the Edmonton-native has had a successful start to 2021 with her single ‘Hellbent’ surpassing 200,000 streams, followed up by her latest release ‘Are You Still Up’ debuting at #3 on the iTunes Country Chart.
We had Taylor-Rae perform at our Bootleggin’ Breakfast on September 18, 2020. Taylor-Rae was phenomenal with her high energy set which featured her amazing voice. She is so talented, professional and has a star quality that words can’t describe. I’ve seen many artists perform over the years and I can honestly say that Taylor-Rae shines through as soon as she hits the stage. Truly a pleasure to work with and we will be booking her again!

Our festival has a capacity of 2500 people and was sold out. Taylor-Rae was the opening act for Colin James and for the first time that I can remember in my 15 years running this festival we had people dancing to the opening act. She brought energy, style and wonderful music to the stage, which engaged the crowd instantly. Her great stage presence exuded confidence and along with her well-crafted songs and set, she wowed the crowd. One of the best opening acts we have ever had. Her show has given me the confidence to hire more country acts at our festival, knowing that our audience appreciates good music. I don’t often hire bands a second time for the festival but would not hesitate to hire her again

Osoyoos Music in the Park welcomed Taylor-Rae and the Backseat Drivers to their stage on July 19, 2019. Taylor-Rae’s performance was professional, genuine and she had the record crowd of 926 in the palm of her hand. Folks were up dancing, many were singing along and everyone was enjoying themselves. Taylor-Rae’s powerful vocals were heard throughout the park and it was an excellent night of music.
