Having explored avant-garde music and drama in Berlin and music theatre in Hamburg, Taylor has since performed in festivals across Europe, including Edinburgh Festival, both as chanteuse and as recitalist. Her versatility as singer and actress is leading her to acclaim as a recording artist, and in the theatre, cabaret and film world.
Taylor, multi-lingual, enjoys turning the stage into worldwide territory, where every song is a one-act play and not a syllable or nuance is left untouched or unconsidered. She is a unique force that blends a luscious, classically-trained voice with an incomparable gift for dramatic truth-telling. Her willingness to take it to the edge is what sets Wilson apart from other operatically trained singers who venture into contemporary styles. She is unafraid to forsake her lush vibrato, straighten out her tone and unleash notes that cut across musical categories, to seize the essence of the song.
She enjoys collaborating with like-minded hybrid musicians, such as New Music Ensemble and Karen MacIver(piano/accordion) and Robin Mason(cello), with whom she has collaborated on her successful one-woman shows, Alchemy and ‘No Regrets’, featuring the music of Kurt Weill, Fado, and songs by Piaf and Dietrich. She has been guest artist with McFall’s Chamber Orchestra, performing at Queen’s Hall and the Bongo Club, Edinburgh, filmed for DVD.
Other recordings include soundtracks for both film and television (she featured on the sound track of a Scottish-based film, Blinded, by composer Malcolm Lindsay, which was screened at the Edinburgh and Cannes Film Festivals) and in the past few years, Taylor has forayed into the acting world, having played lead roles in short films.
A few years ago she was honoured to be invited to perform at the Edinburgh International Jazz Festival with legendary American pianist, Dick Hyman. She has performed many times in Hong Kong and given masterclasses at the Academy of Performing Arts.
Recently she performed the title role in ‘The story of Marlene Dietrich’ in London, to critical acclaim.
Taylor is currently seeking funding/sponsorship for her one-woman show, a music theatre piece about Piaf and Dietrich, which she has work shopped in the U.K with director John Binnie and with cabaret specialist Helen Baldassare in New York.
