Rene Taylor has magic in her voice. A storyteller at heart, she sets the scene for each one of her sultry jazz numbers, transporting the listener to a bygone era of an underground jazz cocktail lounge, no matter the setting you see her in. Her beauty matches her smokey deep voice and the magic of both will resonate long after her show ends.

What a pleasure it was to hear Rene Taylor perform at the “Music in the Mountains“ concert series at Catalina State Park last weekend.  Her vocals are sultry. Her phrasing is exquisite. She has complete mastery of the Great American Songbook. I look forward to hearing her perform again and again.

Magic filled the air as Rene started singing her set of soft jazz. Her renditions of old favorites capped a perfect evening. Her voice has a wonderful quality that envelops the audience. Her versions while true to the originals, contain her own personality, her particular interpretation. The result - an awesome sound. It is truly a gift to have a talent like Rene here in our community. We intend to see her as often as we can.

As a business owner I have had the opportunity to employ many talented singers at my restaurant with much success. However, after hearing Rene Taylor, none are as  comparable in talent, poise, voice, or style.  We look forward to having her sing in our venue this summer as our patrons are in for a very special treat.  Rene's voice and wide range of song selections will leave you wanting more.

I have had the pleasure of working with Rene for the past six years.  At Prestige, our residents love listening to Rene during special events and weekly Happy Hours.  Not only does her voice capture your heart, but the passion and education she provides before each number is a treat!  Thank you Rene for all you do!

We had the privilege to hear Rene sing previously so we didn’t have to search at all when it came time to choose who we wanted to sing at our wedding.  Rene’s performance was absolutely spectacular!  We had so many compliments from our guests about her beautiful voice.  Thank you Rene for making our special day so memorable with your beautiful voice.

Vocalist René Taylor has assembled a collection of songs here that deftly demonstrate her uncanny ability to span multiple genres of American Popular Song. From the classics of Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, and Karl Suessdorf, to the Broadway works of both Burton Lane and Meredith Willson. Add to that, film standards by Harold Arlen and Les Brown. And the wonder of Stevie Wonder… “Beautifully, yet sparingly set, the[se} arrangements allow Ms. Taylor’s voice to truly shine.”

- Peter W. Athens

Rene Taylor is an accomplished cabaret singer with a repertoire of jazz and blues songs from the 30's-50's.  Her soft, but strong voice, pulls you into the songs along with the back stories she provides. Catch one of her shows for an enjoyable, nostalgic evening.
- Irene Read

When I heard René Taylor perform at Pastiche, a Tucson eatery, it was a most pleasant experience. Her music selection of well researched Jazz Standards gave me a perspective of music I have heard but knew little about historically. I appreciate her unique voice and singing style. I look forward to hearing her again.
- Jill Maratea

The first time I went to Rene Taylor’s performance, I was immediately mesmerized by the sensuousness and vivaciousness of her voice.   Rene’s ability to connect deeply with her audience is tantalizing, joyous and overall good fun. I enjoy Rene’s storytelling before each song, as she shares pieces of her soul with you. I never miss an opportunity to see Rene, particularly with other friends, creating a local band of groupies. Do not miss the opportunity to experience Rene’s sultry voice; more importantly, the chance to feel at home with a good friend.

The sound of Rene Taylor's voice brings me so much joy and comfort.  We have always enjoyed the variety of music she provides and she is so passionate in her delivery of each song.  Rene also shares with her audiences some history about either the artist or the song so you get a little fun fact to go along with her song.  Check out her performance schedule on her website and go listen to this soothing voice.  I'm sure you will have a wonderful time listening to Rene's performance.

Rene is the ultimate entertainer.  Her sultry voice is complimented by the wonderful background stories about the songs and artists who created those songs.  She is so much more than a singer.  Her love for what she does comes through with every song.
