“Blessed with a beautiful and powerful voice, Dione Taylor is a singer that you simply feel compelled to play attention to. Our audience loved every minute of her show and I know they will be talking about it for some time.” – Don Griffith, Saskatoon Jazz Society
Dione Taylor took an insightful road trip to Nashville Tennessee and found inspiration for her vivid new album, Spirits in the Water. This musical odyssey explores the deep sacred, healing journey back to the self. Continuing on with her unmistakable ‘Prairie Blues’ sound, Dione’s music is a mixture of Roots, Blues and Americana. She brings us on an intriguing and magical, thematic journey through song with stories of Mystical Truths (“Water”), Race Inequality, (“Working”), Hiraeth or Homesickness (“Where I Belong”), Women’s Rights (“Down the Bloodline”), Heartbreak (“One More Shot”), Omnipresent Energy (“Spirit”), Injustice (“How Many Times”), Nigredo or Transformation (“Darkness”), Freedom (“Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around”) and Perseverance (“Running”).
Having first burst onto the music scene with her Juno nominated debut album “Open Your Eyes”, Taylor’s career trajectory has been truly remarkable. With performances at festivals and concert theatres across the United States, Canada and Asia for audiences that have included the President of the United States and Queen Elizabeth II, Taylor has made a worthy name for herself as one of this country’s most talented musicians and songstresses.
“Dione reaches for an extra helping of soul and blues to her mix on “Born Free”, with stunning results” – Danny Marks, Host /Producer Bluz.FM on Jazz FM91
