⭑ ⭑ ⭑ Claire Anne Taylor ⭑ ⭑ ⭑
‘Amazing’- Rhythms Magazine
'Taylor's voice is the stuff of musical legend'- Canberra City News
Claire Anne Taylor crafts soulful folk songs that are alternatively lush and intimately earthy. Born in Tasmania's ancient Tarkine rainforest, Taylor’s music is reflective of her wild and remote upbringing. With her colossal vocals and powerfully captivating stage presence, her live shows leave the audience in no doubt that they have just witnessed something extraordinary. In January, 2019 Taylor released her second studio album, titled 'All The Words'. A rich, soulful masterpiece from the Tasmanian songstress, 'All The Words' was recorded in a wooden cabin in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by esteemed producer Chris Townend (Portishead, Silverchair, Tim Finn, Ngaiire).
