Sydney-born Kiwi singer-songwriter, Taylor B-W, is one of the new generation of emerging indie artists.  Her sound blends soulful, Michael Jackson-style melodies and moody, Banks-esque lyrics in an electro-pop and R&B 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 also switched her attention to wildlife conservation, becoming a qualified zookeeper at Sydney’s Taronga Training Institute, 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 in my past and present.  I use lyrics and music as my way 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 her songs 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 to win 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.
