Taylor Abrahamse with Steve Hartmann at Stage 33 Live

BELLOWS FALLS — A pair of stunning voices: Taylor Abrahamse comes down from Ontario to play Stage 33 Live with Steve Hartmann opening, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, VT, on Sunday, September 8, 2024, at 7:00 PM. $20 in advance through stage33live.com or $20 at the door. Advance tickets guarantee entry if it sells out. Seating is limited to 40; the performances will be recorded and filmed.

Taylor Abrahamse makes hook-laden clawhammer-guitar pop that blissfully floats between the borders of song, gender, and genre like a maple leaf caught in a gust above the Ontario prairies… a Paul Simon / Jim Carrey crossbreed with a stunning range, a glint in his eye, and a tip of his grandpa’s old cap. He leaves audiences laughing, inspired, and singing along — whether or not they can hit the high notes.

Taylor is a Kerrville New Folk winner, Canadian Idol and Mariposa finalist, and co-founder of Silverthorn Studios, a much-loved Toronto recording studio. He co-produced his debut album with Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, KISS, etc). He’s written with platinum-selling songwriters Liz Rodrigues (Eminem, Celine Dion), Jeff Franzel (N’Sync, Rhys Lewis, Josh Groban), and Pam Sheyne (Christina Aguilera). He writes and performs music for movies, television, and branded web projects as well, most notably the feature film About Fate starring Emma Roberts. His original songs for online animated content providers such as Super Planet Dolan, Gardenkeeper Gus, and Corus Entertainment have been heard over 21 million times.

Way back in 2001, Taylor Abrahamse played young Jimmy Osmond in the ABC biopic Inside The Osmonds. We may need to have some fun with this.
In addition to his music career, Taylor Abrahamse is a professional voice actor with decades of experience and hundreds of appearances. He can be heard in leading roles on Disney XD, Cartoon Network, Discovery Kids/Teletoon, Universal Kids, Nickelodeon, and PBS.

“Truly one of Canada’s most original and outstanding artists.” — Eddie Kramer, Grammy-Winning Producer/Engineer (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Bowie, Brian May, Carly Simon, The Beatles)

“All the talent of some of the world’s mega-artists like Michael Jackson, Prince… Seeing him perform is an overwhelming experience.” — Chris Birkett, Grammy Winning Producer (Sinead O’Connor)

“Abundantly clear that he’s spent a lifetime cultivating a voice that can do literally anything.” — Heather Kitching, Roots Music Canada

“Taylor has struck gold somewhere in the funky Neil Young/Randy Newman mountains.” — Lenny Stoute, Cashbox Canada

 
Singer-songwriter Steve Hartmann, who was born in Dalat Vietnam towards the end of the Vietnam War and adopted a few months later, has been described him as “the grey” between an acoustic Dave Matthews and Damion Rice. Using effects and looper pedals to highlight his dynamic vocal range and lyrically driven songs, his sound is readily identifiable. He’s opened for major acts like Bryan Adams, Train, and Dispatch, winning over audiences with his captivating stage presence.

“Steve’s vocals are pristine” — Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional, Twin Forks)

“I was blown away – speechless.” — Livingston Taylor
