Bree Taylor sings the praises of the weekend beach party with her new summertime celebration Sha La La — showcasing today at Tinnitist.
The latest single from the up-and-coming Canadian country talent is tailor-made for Saturday night at the lake after a day spent in the sun. In true Taylor style, it’s authentic and down-home, thanks to richly detailed lyrics that paint a vibrant picture of life’s simpler pleasures — “Headlights shining on a beach-sand dance floor / Saturday night and we know what we came for / Brown eyed girl on a broken guitar / Singing sha la la.”
For Taylor, it just comes naturally — singing, writing, and performing were built into her DNA. By the age of six, the soon-to-be breakout artist was already exhibiting signs of being a musician. Despite a hearing impairment, she found her voice with the choir and eventually made her way to a recording studio in her teens. She trained with vocal coaches Bob Garrett and Lorraine Lawson, releasing her debut EP Unbreakable in 2019.
Three of her songs have charted on the Canadian Indie Country Charts. Her first single Cry reached No. 2, only to be topped by the followup Burning Bridges (2020). Her third single Kryptonite would soon follow suit and earn her accolades at the Mississauga Music Awards. Recently, Taylor was nominated for Established Vocalist of the Year with the MARTY Awards 2022 and reached the Top 100 in the 2022 Searchlight Contest.
