"She has been called one of the most tender voices in dance and a stimulating aural aphrodisiac."
Best known for her intoxicating melodies and profound lyrics, Zara Taylor's voice has made a lasting impact on the dance music scene appearing on hundreds of albums worldwide, including singles and compilations.
In 2006, while living in Montreal, Zara began her music career singing Progressive House with DJ Sultan. They released their first single ‘No Why’ on Deep Dish’s record label, ‘Yoshitoshi’ followed by numerous successful collaborations including ‘Be with U’ and their official remix of ‘Let’s Get Physical’.
In 2008, after debuting on the Trance scene with the all-time balearic favourite ‘Crawling’, Zara teamed up again with Roger Shah a.k.a Sunlounger for the massive hit ‘Lost’ which quickly became #1 on the Beatport charts. The single made Armin’s 'A State Of Trance' 2008 Compilation, was voted Future Favorite, and won #1 Trance Song of the Year on ASOT Radio; broadcast to an estimated 38 million listeners and spread over more than 80 countries, Zara’s name became established worldwide amongst the top vocalists in EDM. Two years later, Armin Van Buuren’s mash-up of the epic tune again reached the #1 spot on the charts.
Zara has continued collaborations with her favorite hit maker, Roger Shah, together creating the “fan favorite”, ‘Try To Be Love’, appearing on Armin’s ASOT 2012 Compilation and Universal Religion albums. Echoing the earlier success of ‘Lost’, ‘Try To Be Love’ was also voted tune of the week and future favorite on ASOT radio with a remix made once again by Armin himself.
After spending nearly a decade touring the world as an EDM vocalist, Zara found her heart in the Okanagan of BC, Canada where she met her husband in 2013. Taking a hiatus after the birth of their two children, Zara came back to the Trance top 100 charts with her highly anticipated single 'Fire', and released a chart toping Vocal Pack called 'In Pieces'; an album of unreleased original songs compiled exclusively for new and up - and - coming producers to use and remix royalty free.
In December of 2018, Will Atkinson’s remix of Zara’s single “Lost” climbed back up the Trance charts to #1 and held the spot well into 2019 - almost 10 years after it's original release date, proving to be a timeless winner.
This is a vocalist that continues to surprise us. Zara quickly appears on the scene every now and again with her provocatively emotional vocals, randomly disappearing again only to return to our headphones when she has something worth saying. Zara believes music has the profound ability to heal the broken, she hopes her words and voice can help heal the world, even if just one heart, one listener at a time.
