Taylor Janzen

The Winnipeg artist first garnered praise from the likes of the New York Times with her debut EP, “Interpersonal,” which was mastered by Greg Calbi (Julien Baker, Arcade Fire, Big Thief) and co-produced by Taylor. Janzen then released her second EP, “Shouting Matches,” and received further praise from Exclaim!, NYLON, Paste, Noisey, i-D, and more. Taylor was also named an Official Artist at SXSW in 2019, where she performed at the Rolling Stone Emerging Artist Showcase, and NPR featured her in their coveted Austin 100. Her latest single, “Designated Driver” reminds listeners of her emotional tracks that resonated so often at the beginning of her career. 


Growing up, Taylor wasn’t encouraged to speak through her feelings, so turned to songwriting as an outlet. As a result, with each song, we’re granted an intimate and almost painstakingly brazen glimpse into the most heart-wrenching pages of her diary.  She writes candidly, touching on the topics of mental health and emotional abuse, noting that, “the music that I write is very honest, so it speaks for itself.”


“The thing is, my personality isn’t as depressing as my music is,” adds Taylor. Often tweeting about Dennis Quaid (whom she interviewed for Paste Magazine), her cat Rory Gilmore and the occasional Paramore cover (one of which went viral with 25k+ retweets and got the endorsement from Hayley Williams herself), every little thing Taylor shares with the world is magic, shining light and finding beauty in even the darkest, and seemingly mundane moments.
