She is an accomplished Iranian-American multi-instrumentalist who is deeply inspired by blues, folk, and Iranian folk music traditions. In her live band she combines fiddle, banjo, and luscious harmonies to offer a soul-folk revival experience. In the past year she has toured with Rising Appalachia, Climbing PoeTree, and Lyla June.

Taylor Hawk is a singer-songwriter living in rural Colorado. Originally from the High Sierras of Northern California, her mountain roots show through in rich, folksy harmonies and natural imagery. Timeless vocals and evocative lyrics conspire to create transformative folk/indie music. Her songs resonate with the yearning, tenderness, and fragility of a deeply examined inner life.
