Claire Anne Taylor
Claire Anne Taylor, ‘the possessor of a huge, powerful voice,’ crafts soulful folk songs that are alternatively lush and intimately earthy. – Rhythms Magazine.
Born in a barn built by her parents in Tasmania’s ancient Tarkine Rainforest, Taylor’s music is reflective of her wild and remote upbringing. With her colossal voice, compelling storytelling and mesmerising stage presence, her live shows leave the audience in no doubt they have just witnessed something extraordinary. In January, 2019 she released her second studio album, titled ‘All The Words’. A rich, soulful masterpiece, recorded in a wooden cabin in Tasmania’s Huon Valley by esteemed producer Chris Townend (Portishead, Silverchair, Tim Finn, Ngaiire). The album sees Taylor’s powerful, smoke-filled voice set amongst a rich musical palette of soul, folk, gospel and the blues.
Having garnered a reputation for herself as one of the most poignant and emotionally engaging live performers, Claire Anne Taylor is not to be missed at this year’s Queenscliff Music Festival.
