Boston, MA/Austin, TX
A triple threat, Sonya Rae Taylor is a fiery guitar slinger, soulful blues belter and a songwriter of depth and craft beyond her years. Joined by her husband Ryan Taylor, the pair make a formidable guitar duo. After Sonya graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2010, the native Bostonians moved to Austin, and then Nashville, where she was signed as a songwriter by BMG Chrysalis. Having since worked or shared stages with Gary Clark Jr., John Popper of Blues Traveler and John Medeski, Sonya has also been featured on ABC’s smash hit show, Nashville. Two of the finest young guitar players around, Sonya and Ryan Taylor continually provide audiences with high energy and soulful performances, up and down the east coast and beyond. Part of the new breed of blues and soul musicians, Sonya Rae Taylor is always searching for new ways to revitalize the form. She’ll bring her Boston-based band up I95 for their first appearance in Canada.
