Canadian born singer and songwriter Alexis Taylor was raised in the small town of Huntsville, Ontario. From a young age she showed a great interest in music, displaying proficiency in guitar, vocals, and strong capabilities in the area of songwriting.
At the age of 12, she wrote her first song and learned how to play guitar shortly after. Throughout her highschool years she performed in many local venues including the Huntsville Algonquin Theatre, The Gravenhurst Opera House, Hidden Valley Resort, and Deerhurst Resort. She competed as a finalist in Muskoka Star Quest and was a part of the first annual Muskoka Song Night. By then, music had become an inseparable part of Alexis' life.
After highschool, she continued to build upon her musical skills through studies at Berklee College of Music and performed at various venues and radio stations throughout North America. It was during a visit to Nashville, Tennessee in 2012 that Alexis fell in love with the city and decided to pursue music full time.
Summer 2016 saw the launch of Alexis' international career 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 has been 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."
At the beginning of 2018, Alexis released her debut single "Blame The Whiskey" which allowed her to appear live on numerous radio stations throughout North America, and take part in events such as Canadian Music Week in Toronto, and CMA Fest in Nashville. The release of "Blame The Whiskey" also lead to Alexis being nominated in for Female Vocalist of the Year for the 2018 Tennessee Music Awards, and take the #1 position for two weeks on Reverb Nation's provincially ranked country artists.
Currently Alexis is continuing to follow her dream as a musician; performing at a variety of venues all over North America, and working on new music in the studio which she is planning on releasing shortly.
