Billy Keane + Taylor Ashton
August 18 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Billy’s sound – a blending of neo folk/americana with indie rock and country – is inspired by his life, his listening, his belief that to be human means to experience the universe and our world its people and to reflect all that back upon itself through artistic expression. He can be found performing his resounding anthemic songs either as a a solo act with an acoustic guitar, or as a full band setup reflective of his most recent album, too much to let it go (release early 2022).
Taylor Ashton is a Canadian singer and songwriter living in Brooklyn. He spent the first half of his twenties on the road across Canada as frontman of the band Fish & Bird before moving to New York to work on a new set of songs and a new chapter of life. His music takes influence from the cosmic emotionality of Joni Mitchell, the sage vulnerability of Bill Withers, the humour and heartbreak of Randy Newman, and old-time and Celtic folk music. Alternately accompanying himself on clawhammer banjo and electric guitar, Taylor croons poignantly clever lyrical insights while effortlessly gliding between a Bill Callahan-esque baritone to a Thom Yorke-like falsetto.
