For this episode I was lucky enough to have as guest an incredible Canadian folk artist singer/songwriter, Julian Taylor.
Julian Taylor is a Toronto based singer/songwriter and winner of the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2021 as Solo Artist of the Year for his album ‘The Ridge’.
Born of West Indian and Mohawk descent, Taylor was raised in Toronto by his grandmother in a predominantly white environment that left him feeling out of touch with his Indigenous and Black roots. Growing up Julian Taylor struggled to belong but music has always persisted as a way to connect with those around him.
With ‘The Ridge’, Taylor has tapped into his roots and most intimate relationships more than ever before, resulting in arguably the artist’s biggest release in his 25 year career.
