Bianca Taylor

I am a Canadian singer, writer, musician, and theatre-maker born in Oakville, ON. I have been residing in St. Catharines since 2018 and recently graduated from Brock University with a psychology degree (alongside a minor in dramatic arts).

Being raised by a single-mother a capella singer alongside a visual artist sister made creativity inherently normalized and encouraged; this led me to pursue the performing arts from a young age. I find song-writing to be a great therapeutic tool, allowing me the space to process and reflect on my feelings, experiences, etc. in a way that makes sense to me. It gives me the opportunity to channel my strong emotions into something creative and productive rather than something destructive. I aim to physicalize the content I explore in my lyrics by finding a way for the track to embody it also. Typical themes I delve into revolve around self-reflection, productive guilt, positive (and necessary) change, duality vs. black-and-white thinking, queer love and friendship, time and mortality, mental health and frustration with self, growth through letting go, and loss as a neutral concept. 

I find my psychology degree greatly informs the work I create. I hope to resonate with those who may have experienced/be experiencing similar inner turmoil to encourage unity and quell isolation.

I am extremely thankful to Suitcase in Point for including me in the 2023-2024 Nest Residency among such incredibly talented artists. To say I’m honoured is an understatement, and I can’t wait to support each other in our journeys!
