Savannah Taylor & Nina's Daughters Collective - MusicOntario Member Spotlight
This week's member spotlight is on Savannah Taylor, an emerging singer/songwriter from Brampton, whose powerhouse voice would be just as at home in a cozy blues club as it would be belting to thousands in an arena. Exploring her roots and identity through her art, Savannah is also a community builder, working to develop a space where Black womxn can safely gather, grow, and create.
ABOUT SAVANNAH TAYLOR:
Savannah Taylor is a multi-faceted, Brampton-based artist. Inheriting her love for music from her father, the self-taught singer/songwriter and actress is refining her craft through integrity and self-awareness. With one EP under her belt, Supernova—an introspective exploration of self and life—the diasporic Trinidadian continues to use her music as a catalyst to heal, connect, and self-soothe. She shares, “Honestly, I make music as a dialogue to myself but release it as an offering to everyone but more specifically Black women.” She recently released her new single under her new alias "Madame La," titled “You Want To Know.” It is exclusively on bandcamp with all funds being donated to the Nina’s Daughters Collective.
