Taylor Shae’s musical journey began in a town with a vibrant music scene, where she was a lead vocalist for several jazz bands and a rock band. She landed her first gig at the age of 13, at a local art gallery, and was stunned by the thrill of performing and the incredible support from her fellow hometown musicians and fans. After success in local singing competitions, Taylor fused her passions of writing and music and began daily songwriting sessions in the spare bedroom of her home. Taylor had no idea what would come of her creative nonsense, until she began to produce original recordings and reach a broader audience. At the age of 16, Taylor released her debut album, “Something to Prove”.
Taylor Shae’s 2nd album, “Twenty Paces”, is a combination of storytelling, honest lyrics, raw emotion, and soaring melodies. When describing her approach to this album, Taylor says, “I believe it’s important to have moments of vulnerability, because it opens the door to relate to others and make connections. I want to spark a fire in the hearts of listeners and make a difference in lives of the unspoken through my music and songwriting. Everyone has insecurities, but it takes fearlessness to push through them.” Keep an open ear for her new album, “Twenty Paces”, to be released March 23, 2018.
