About Dione Taylor

Jazz, blues and gospel collide in this artist’s deep love for music, influenced by her past as a pastor's daughter from Saskatchewan — Taylor was raised in a family completely connected to song. The soulful singer’s Juno-nominated debut album catapulted her career across the continents, seeing her perform for audiences that have included the President of the United States and Queen Elizabeth II.
