Meet Taylor O’Connor from Grafton, MA

Taylor’s time in Nashville has served her well. Her artistry has been fed, water and nurtured. The results are evident in this New Englander’s new original offering, “See You Around.” Her vocals are rich, soulful and strong, and her emotions effectively delivered.

The subject is one most of us who have loved and lost can relate to. You can’t escape the image of the person who you held so close, even though they are not in the picture anymore. It’s a well-crafted piece of art from this singer/songwriter, who got her start in musical theater.

The former Berklee College of Music student seems to be making all the right moves, and not just the one to Nashville. More ears need to be listening to this talented artist.
