About the Event
Sydney-born Kiwi singer-songwriter, Taylor B-W, is one of the new generation of emerging indie artists. Hersound blends
soulful, Michael Jackson-style melodies and moody, Banks-esque lyrics in an electro-pop and RnB shell.
She asserts a strong presence on stage, however B-W confesses her Instagram account reveals a rather goofy and funny persona: “I am, first and foremost, a daggy person at heart.”
B-W rediscovered her passion for music after initially pursuing an acting career. However,she switched to wildlife conservation,
becoming a qualified zookeeper at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo,when her health suffered under the pressure of acting.
She writes and sings to help release herself from inner self-conflict: “My songs clear out the cobwebs my past and present. I use lyrics and music as myway of soul-searching and to heal the cracks in my relationship with me. I guess, I’m always just trying to make sense of it all.”
B-W found the confidence to put hersongs out there in 2017 when she won the Australian segment of the unsigned-artist
competition, Emergenza. Singing songs she had written,she then went on tow in Best Vocalist, and came fourth overall, at the 2018 international finals in Germany.
Taylor B-W is the daughter of Dragon frontman and NZ music legend, Mark Williams, and former Kiwi dancer and show business administrator, Pamela Beadle. B-W completed a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in music, at the University of Sydney.
