Alberta-born, Toronto-based Steven Taetz and his band blend rollicking roots rock, gentle pop ballads, blue-eyed soul as part of the "Road to the Badlands" tour throughout Alberta and BC in Summer 2024, culminating in a supporting set mainstage with Blue Rodeo at the Badlands Amphitheatre in Drumheller. His material fits in the playlist of fans of Roy Orbison, Brandi Carlile, and k.d. lang. Previous touring includes National Arts Centre, L’Astral Theatre Montreal, Rochester International Jazz Festival, Rockwood Music Hall NYC, Capital Pride Washington D.C., Calgary Folk Festival’s Block Heater, and Ottawa Bluesfest mainstage prior to Robert Plant & Allison Krauss. Taetz was recently nominated for the 2024 Canadian Folk Music Awards and was a finalist in several international songwriting competitions. With his new album of contemporary roots love songs called Late Bloom, Taetz continues to prove that he’s game for anything, provided it gives him a chance to sing his beautiful heart out.
