Taylor Newville

My musical life in a nutshell

My music roots began in Portland, Oregon at the age of six. Ukulele was my start and then moved on to the acoustic and electric guitars. I was fortunate to be a student of Ethos, School of Rock, and Rock & Roll Camp for Girls. I fell in love with playing the guitar and it still is my passion. I have played many different styles of music through the years:  such as heavy metal, rock, jazz and the blues.  At this time in my life I am focusing on the blues with my band Taylor Newville and the Riders.  The band started with a huge bump when we were finalists for The Journey to Memphis Blues competition at the 2023 Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, Oregon.  Recently I was nominated for the 2023 Cascade Blues Association Muddy Awards- Celebrating the Best in the NW Blues for Best New Artist. I was also able to produce two CDs with my originals and have been playing gigs in the Northwest.  Life is so good when I can play the blues! Check out my music on Spotify, Apple music, Pandora,  and Amazon music.
