Taylor Shae is an award-winning singer-songwriter born and raised in Colorado. Taylor’s bluesy sound “mixes old soul lyrics with bright vocals and a high-energy delivery for a fresh take on the Americana genre.” (303 Magazine, 2019). You can catch the other half of the duo, RD, playing with a rebellious style on the bass, acoustic, or electric guitars. Together, the duo has played at Colorado venues and festivals since 2016, grabbing the attention of any passerby willing to give into the urge to tap their feet. Few songwriters can claim the release of three albums by the age of 18, but Taylor’s drive is evident in her latest release “High Stakes” in April 2019.
Taylor’s songwriting has been described as having a “carefree edge,” complemented by her “velvety-toned” and “powerhouse vocals” (Boulder Daily Camera, 2019). Taylor believes that much of her songwriting is influenced by the world around her. She is currently a student at Colorado State University, studying Media Communication as an outlet for the passion for storytelling she finds in songwriting and music.
Taylor Shae has received much success as an emerging young songwriter. She was selected to participate in the 2019 Boulder County Artist In Residence Program. Located in Nederland’s Caribou Ranch Open Space, Taylor experienced an inspiring week up in the mountains dedicated to songwriting, videography, and other creative endeavors. She’s performed at many festivals across Colorado including Bohemian Nights presents NewWestFest and Thursday Night Live, FoCoMX, Denver People’s Fair, Underground Music Showcase, Rhythm on The River, The Boulder County Fair, and Bands on the Bricks. She was selected as a finalist for the 2017 Handmade Songs competition and recorded an original single, “Alive Not Broken,” at eTown studios.
