TAYLOR and BRYN
How far will 2 guitars and 20 harmonicas take you? Taylor Abrahamse and Bryn Scott-Grimes are on a journey to find out.
Taylor’s earliest memories are of stage and screen – he’s been a professional actor since the age of 6, in addition to his successful solo music career. Bryn’s first recordings were spun out in the attic of the big old house where he was born, resulting in 4 solo albums, and a self-operated & thriving harmonica school.
They became friends while pursuing their BAs in music at York University, Toronto, and soon discovered their mutual fascination for any song brimming with pure imagination. In 2014, after working successfully as solo artists in the city, they decided to combine their distinctive song-writing styles and musical energies to create something altogether new.
The Taylor & Bryn sound is a distinctive blend of innovation and musicianship that evokes jazz standards, 70’s pop, folk, rock, soul, hip hop, show tunes and beyond—a bright, bold sound that’s equal parts distinct, refreshing, and accessible. Taylor & Bryn’s live shows are high-energy infusions of melody, wit, soaring harmonies, sophisticated guitar parts, and beat-boxing harmonica.
Glen Alan is an professional musician, composer, recording producer and a passionate music educator. Glen graduated with his Grade 8 Piano Certificate from the Royal Conservatory of Music and his Vocal Performance Diploma from Humber College with First Class Honours. Glen has recorded 2 CDs to date and has been playing and recording music professionally in numerous bands and vocal groups for well over 25 years.
A committed humanitarian and environmentalist, Glen’s original material spans a wide range of styles and influences exploring the gamut of human emotion from separation, loss, love, humour, hope and inspiration. Glen Alan’s ‘singing and songwriting style has been compared to Steely Dan, Ben Folds, Queen, the Beatles and Brian Wilson.
Glen Alan has performed and recorded with locally and internationally recognized artists such as Brian Dickinson, Dylan Bell, Tony Nesbitt-Larking, Suba Sankaran, Christopher Plock, Max Senitt, Natalie McMaster, Mark Dubois, Tim Bovaconti, Chris Birkett, Lenny Soloman, Steve Hunter, Jackie Richardson and many others…
