Taylor Kurta - SickKids

In 2013, Taylor Kurta won Canada’s Walk of Fame, RBC Emerging Artist Award. As part of this award, Taylor received a mentorship with Gil Moore and Rik Emmett of Triumph, as well as the Tragically Hip’s Gord Sinclair.

Recently, Taylor headlined  “A Night of Music Therapy” for SickKids Hospital. We are proud to be a part of this event by autographing a guitar donated by Steve’s Music – thank you to Taylor for being a great auctioneer! The evening raised over $2900 for SickKids Hospital’s Music Therapy Program.
