Cate Taylor - Dawn Skies

Cate Taylor - Dawn Skies
Cate Taylor is an alt folk/country singer songwriter from Melbourne. Influences include Gillian Welch, Joni Mitchell, Holly Throsby and Steve Pigram.

Taylor began writing and performing in her late teens, fronting the 90’s folk pop band, The Symbolists. She has worked with a swathe of talented musicians including Greg Hamilton, Nina Rose, Jason Bunn and Nicola Bell.

Taylor’s music is described as rich, natural and grounded in heartfelt, spacious lyrics and a performance style that is authentic and engaging. Her songs reflect social, personal and environmental themes moving between raw, stripped-back arrangements to fuller compositions with a bit of twang and stomp.

Her debut album, Red Dirt, released in October, 2019, features some of Melbourne’s finest musicians including Nina Rose on vocal harmonies, John Bedggood on mandolin and fiddle, and David Bridie on piano.

Taylor is currently performing in various inner Melbourne and interstate venues, as well as co-writing new material with guitarist, Greg Hamilton.

-A truly beautiful album. Taylor writes contemplative songs accompanied by soothing instrumentals that complement the very observant, reflective lyrics. -Maja, Singer/songwriter and spoken word artist.

-Thoughtful songs with spacious production make for a very good album from Cate Taylor – Kavisha Mazzella, Composer and folklorist.
