Rory Taillon

Rory Taillon

Ottawa-based singer/songwriter Rory Taillon is a road warrior, touring across the country and back again. He has the soul of the East coast but the sound of the West in his songs. His music is the work of a one-man Wintersleep, a one-man Tea Party, a one-man Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, with a voice to match the majesty of the Rockies. Because Rory Taillon is not just an entertainer he is a performer. It’s just that simple, when Rory Taillon sings everything stops and when it starts again it’s all changed. It’s just that simple, like folk.
