Tailor is a force to be reckoned with. Her diverse voice and stage persona will take you through an
emotional and captivating journey which will leave you inspired and awestruck. Pundits cite Kate
Bush, PJ Harvey, Patti Smith and Feist with the storytelling of Leonard Cohen as reference points.

In 2016 Tailor recorded Trust Pt. 1 in Texas with Zak Loy, the lead guitarist from Ed Kowalczyk’s LIVE

Tailor collaborated with Ed Kowalczyk’s (LIVE lead singer) on a song called: Angels on a Razor and
British music producer and audio engineer Tim Palmer, known for his work on mixing and producing
Pearl Jam, U2, Ozzy Osborne, The Cure to name a few also worked on Tailor’s latest album.
"With her two previous studio releases, Tailor has proven that she has mastered both the brooding
folksy dark pop genre (Dark Horse released in 2012), as well as the upbeat, commercial indie pop
genre (Light released in 2014)." - Dee Theart - louisepiterse.com
"Tailor's breath-taking and awe-inspiring stage performance is something to behold. The UK has not
seen the likes of it since Bat For Lashes broke the scene some time back..." - Musigooroo
