Taylor Rae is a guitarist/singer/songwriter born and raised in the mountains of Santa Cruz, California. With an extensive background in musical theatre, a natural gift of melody and growing up singing in the church, it was almost inevitable for her music journey to start at an early age. At 18, she made a move to Los Angeles to attended Musicians Institute and to pursue a career performing her original music. She put together a band there and released her third studio album, "Gettin' High to Stay Low" in 2014. Now at 23, Taylor has found a way to modernize her unique 60s & 70’s inspired sound while blending r&b, jazz, funk and blues/rock into a beautiful melting pot of organic music she calls "Soul and Roll". She was recently awarded The 2017 Santa Cruz NEXTies "Musician of the Year." Today Taylor happily resides in her hometown of Ben Lomond where she continues to make her living playing live music around town and the surrounding areas.
