Alexis Taylor on the Main Stage
Country singer and songwriter Alexis Taylor was raised in the small town of Huntsville, Ontario. From a young age she showed a great love and passion for music through her songwriting and acoustic guitar playing. “Both my parents are songwriters, and have always been very musical. Music is a part of me - it has always been in my blood.” After making her very first trip to Nashville, Tennessee, Alexis decided to make the move to Music City.
Shortly after, Alexis saw the launch of her international career in Summer 2016 with a tour throughout Scandinavia, opening for renowned singer/songwriter Doug Seegers. “Being able to open for someone as talented and genuine as Doug Seegers along with his incredibly gifted band was an experience of a lifetime,” she says. “The opportunity truly allowed me to grow as a performer, and I am so grateful that Doug took me under his wing.”
After releasing her first single in 2018, Alexis has had the opportunity to play at events such as Canadian Music Week in Toronto, CMA Fest in Nashville, and open for artists such as Marshall Tucker Band, Love and Theft, and Meghan Patrick. Alexis has also received numerous nominations and awards such as “Female Vocalist of The Year” at the 2018 Tennessee Music Awards and “Modern Country Vocalist of The Year” at the 2020 Josie Music Awards.
Her newest single “Getaway” which was produced by multi-award winning musician, John Willis, is bound to be Alexis' most successful single yet. Alexis wrote the song wanting to give her fans some hope. "After the year we've had, I think it's safe to say everyone needs a 'Getaway!' Alexis says. With her numbers climbing on all streaming platforms, and on radio charts internationally, Alexis is hopeful that her new music will help her achieve even more in the upcoming year.
In the months ahead, Alexis plans on releasing her very first EP album. Each track on the EP will be written by Alexis herself, and will showcase even more of her talent like never before!
