Payton Taylor writes from the heart and sings from an old soul with a voice that is resolute, both on and off stage. The American Idol alum is country roots steeped in blues, in the spirit of artists from Eva Cassidy to Emmylou Harris. Written with a wisdom that belies her age, her songs are sung with a candor that is unmistakably hers. Payton has played prestigious performances at the Ryman Auditorium, the Grand Ole Opry, and The Bluebird Cafe. With a captivating voice that crosses oceans, Payton was honored in 2021 to be part of the inaugural lineup at the Nashville Nights International Songwriters Festival in Denmark. You can find Payton in your local music store on the cover of Hohner Harmonica’s ‘Pentaharp’.
