Rory Taillon is a songwriter who really has something to say through his music. The 26-year-old Oshawa, Ontario resident demonstrates a lyrical mastery that belies his years and shatters formulaic conventions. This is deftly matched with a powerful, bluesy musical style that sets him apart from his contemporaries. With an undeniable and palpable sense of urgency in Taillon's music, most evident on his latest release, It's Not Black & White – this is a visceral look at life through the eyes of the dislocated, disenfranchised and dissatisfied. Combining the best of the poetic wordsmiths of the classic rock era with the 1990s alternative rock sense of nihilism, Taillon's songs are impassioned pleas for people to be allowed to be who they want to be.
