Biography:

“A true artist & a songwriting genius” - Eddie Kramer, Grammy-Winning Producer & Engineer

"My fave Toronto nextgen quirkoid singer/songwriter... Find of the show was quirky balladeer Taylor Abrahamse, whose songs, persona somewhere between Ed Sheeran and Ron Sexsmith and confident delivery signaled an artist just about ready for prime time."
- Lenny Stoute, Cashbox Canada

A professional singer/songwriter, recording studio owner & voice actor, Taylor is a one of a kind singer songwriter. Fans have described him as ‘The Canadian Paul Simon’ and Grammy-winning producer Chris Birkett says: “Taylor Abrahamse has all the talent of some of the worlds mega artists like Michael Jackson, Prince and Jon Anderson (of Yes). His vocal range is almost off the audio scale. Seeing him perform is an overwhelming experience."

After seeing Taylor put on a spontaneous performance at Canadian Music Week, he was contacted by Grammy-winning producer & engineer Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Carly Simon, David Bowie & many more), who insisted on producing & developing him. Now with his debut album set to release November 9th 2020, Eddie describes Taylor as ‘A true artist, and songwriting genius’. His debut album has a musical backdrop that is true to classic songwriters of the 20th century such as James Taylor or Randy Newman, yet feels entirely fresh – dealing with his experiences with love, depression, loss, and even gender identity. Taylor co-founded a busy professional recording studio, Silverthorn Studios, where much of the album was recorded & mixed.

He has also written musicals, and music for other artists & television series seen worldwide, including the main theme for ‘Fangbone!’ (Disney), one of many cartoon series in which Taylor plays a lead or supporting character. He also wrote and performed original song videos for Youtubers such as Corus’ online division & ‘Super Planet Dolan’ - resulting in over 20 million plays and thousands of music downloads.

Beginning as a five-year-old Elvis impersonator at county fairs, and writing songs & playing guitar since he was 12 - at sixteen, he was a Top 30 finalist on Canadian Idol. He has performed concerts on stages across Ontario including Dundas Square, The Mod Club, the Festival Of Lights and as the closing performer for the Ontario Special Olympics. His shows make the audience feel completely connected with Taylor’s blend of gorgeous original songs, covers, improvised comedic songs, and audience participation. Taylor’s show is scale-able to work solo or with Ableton Live, and/or with a 2-4 piece band.

For his debut album, Taylor received grant funding support from FACTOR & the Toronto Arts Council.
