I Never thought i'd be a songwriter
"I wanted to write short stories," Taylor says from her home on the outskirts of Cincinnati, Ohio. "I grew up in a small fishing town in South Florida and was enthralled fairly young by writers like Eudora Welty and Zora Neal Hurston and poet Emily Dickinson. I played flute in my school's marching band and eventually found the guitar. Then I discovered Joni Mitchell. You never know where you'll end up. I never thought I'd be a songwriter but I'm so grateful that I am."
Four full-length and two EP releases later, Taylor is still surprised to find herself a songwriter. She's toured extensively with Canadian songwriter Ron Sexsmith and friends Over The Rhine and supported songwriting heroes like Kris Kristofferson. Her songs have been featured in numerous television shows including Flashpoint, Army Wives, Smallville, Cyberbully and most recently in the UK's flagship comedy-drama, Stella. In 2013, she made her acting debut in the Sundance and Berlinale selected independent film, I Used To Be Darker, portraying a musician mother in the throes of divorce and on the brink of a new life. Taylor's most recent project, Love's A Dog, was Kickstarted by her fans in 2012 and released in 2013 to critical praise.
