I can’t say enough about Julian Taylor. One of my favourite musical artists, seemingly at home in any style, he’s also one of my favourite people to hang out with backstage.
I’m simply crazy about his latest album, The Ridge. It turned a whole lot of heads in the past year and wound up earning Julian his first two JUNO nominations.
Both categories–Contemporary Roots and Indigenous album of the year–are a kind of homecoming for Julian.
Julian and I talked about acknowledgment, identity, and the ‘heart space’ of a great album.
