Bee Taylor, an enchanting artist and wordsmith, weaves melodies that transport you to the enigmatic allure of a New Orleans’ nocturne. Her music is an enticing invitation to both dance joyously down the city streets and quietly peer into the hidden secrets behind drawn curtains. An adept at traversing the soundscape of jazz, funk, roots, and soul, Bee is an appointment with the true spirit of music that you simply can’t afford to miss.
Born and bred on an East Texas cattle ranch, Bee learned the value of perseverance and hard work early in life. As a teenager, she reared piglets and escorted them to the market to fund her first guitar, a testament to her determination and passion for music.
It was in Nashville that she discovered a kaleidoscope of influences that would shape her sound. The music of Django Reinhardt, Howlin’ Wolf, Tom Waits, and Dr. John resonated deeply with her, igniting a lasting love affair with the New Orleans style of piano playing.
A pivotal moment occurred on June 6th, 2019. Investing her last $100 into a piano, Bee began her journey home, only to receive the news of the passing of her newly found musical hero, Dr. John. That day, she pledged to herself and to the world of music that she would master the New Orleans piano style. True to her word, she’s been traversing the United States with her band, capturing hearts with her authentic NOLA sound.
For a truly distinctive musical experience, a potpourri of lyrical and melodic excellence, Bee Taylor’s performance is an absolute must-see.
