Women Singer/Songwriters at Arcana Durham
February 2 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm
Born in Clarksville, Tennessee, just 40 miles outside of Nashville, Earleine grew up immersed in musical culture. At 18 she picked up the guitar, and soon began writing her own songs. Earleine made her way to the Blue Ridge mountains in the Spring of 2016 to expand her musical horizons. Genuine and shockingly honest, her songwriting is mixed with poetic lyricism, and dreamy harmonies that seem to lift hard time memories into ephemeral realms. Earleine’s style is Americana music with a swirl of folk, rock, and roots under a blanket of soul.
Based in Durham NC, Isabel Taylor started singing at local open mics in 2010, accompanying herself on guitar. It wasn’t long before she was playing her own shows and writing songs.She performs regularly at local venues, festivals, and private events in the Triangle (NC) and on the coast. A native of Buffalo, NY, singing has been a passion of hers since childhood, and songwriting has become a way of personally expressing her views on life and love.“Though I began by covering songs by artists that I felt were ‘hidden gems,’ I find that writing songs is even more fulfilling. There is nothing like singing an original song and experiencing the audience’s connection to it.”Taylor’s sophomore album, Isabel Taylor, produced by award-winning songwriter and guitarist Jon Shain, was released in May 2019 and reached number 15 on the Folk Radio chart in June 2019. Her debut album, Awake Again, also produced by Shain, was released in June 2016. It also reached number 15 on the Folk Radio chart, in January 2017.
