“Taylor Wilson can bend a note at 90 degrees with her wonderful mezzo-soprano voice” The Scotsman

“Taylor Wilson, rich and creamy, has the voice to die for” The Herald

Taylor Wilson’s versatility as singer and actress is leading her to acclaim as a recording artist, and in the theatre, cabaret and film world. Paisley is in for a treat…

Taylor Wilson will bring her cabaret style ‘Alchemy’- a recent sell-out at the West End Festival - to Paisley. She will be performing a heady concoction of songs from the intimate world of Edith Piaf, Cole Porter and Berlin cabaret, to the sensual works of Astor Piazzolla and Portuguese Fado. Taylor is accompanied by Karen MacIver on piano and accordion (PRS British Composer Award 2010) and Rudi de Groote on cello (principal cellist, Orchestra of Scottish Opera). She will forego her microphone and take full advantage of the church’s natural acoustic….a glorious evening ahead.

Of personal importance and of shared significance by so many people in Scotland, this concert will also raise money for Revive MS. Taylor Wilson is one of the Scottish Opera stalwarts who recently walked from Glasgow to Inverness to raise money for Revive MS.

Taylor is a classical singer, yet she has always straddled many musical genres. What sets her apart from other operatically trained singers is that when Taylor ventures into contemporarystyles, she can forsake her lush vibrato, straighten out her tone and unleash notes that cut across musical categories to seize the essence of the song.

She works with cutting-edge ensembles and groups such as Scottish Voices (with whom she recorded a CD in Virginia), the Research Ensemble and last year created one of three lead roles in a newly-written chamber opera, Flight Paths, as part of the Cultural Olympiad. She is a regular performer at the Edinburgh Festival both as chanteuse (her one-woman show) and recitalist of lieder and contemporary music - often written for her. She has often performed with the McFall’s Chamber Orchestra, recorded for film and television and performed in the Edinburgh International Jazz Festival for legendary American pianist, Dick Hyman.

Taylor is also working on a one-woman piece about Piaf and Dietrich which she has been work shopping in the U.K with John Binnie and in New York with cabaret specialist, Helen Baldassare.
