Dione Taylor is a vocalist who’s always searching.

In 2005, she was nominated for a Juno Award in the category of vocal jazz album of the year. Since then, she’s used her voice and creativity to explore many different musical styles, including blues, folks and roots music.

Taylor has just released a new single from her forthcoming album Spirits in the Water, and she’s also recently become a member of the Toronto Blues Society musicians advisory council.

Taylor joined us to talk about the inspiration for her new album, and the personal connections that lead to the best musical collaborations.
