Ontario songtress Tao Lynn Hipwell has a way with words, and her evocative, ethereal lyrics bring deep Canadian roots to original folk music.

Her debut album, Owls & Rafters, features 13 of her earliest songs, and is a tribute to the beginnings of her music.

Tao is working on a second album,

which will be released in the Fall of 2019.

She lives on a small homestead in Lyndhurst, Ontario with her partner and young sons, where the days are filled by tending her little bears, chicken chores, and milking goats.


In stolen moments, she writes poetry and songs.
