WCL House Concerts Series
While we're still unable to welcome you into our house, we're excited to present a series of virtual WCL House Concerts with a nod to the centuries-old tradition! We've invited some of your favorite Philly-area artists, many of whom have played our stages countless times over the years, to share their music. These intimate livestream concerts will premiere on our YouTube channel, directly from the artists' homes to yours.
WCL House Concerts will be FREE to watch, but we hope you'll consider making a donation to support independent live music. Click "Add to Cart" to RSVP for a reminder email with the stream link, where you can also make an optional donation of any amount. All donations will be split between the artist and World Cafe Live. World Cafe Live is a nonprofit and all donations are tax-deductible.
Taylor Kelly has a voice that blends both the smoothness and rhythmic nature of jazz, soul and funk. Her tasteful songwriting tells tales of truth in hopes to inspire many to love, live and let go. Also a trumpet player, she strives for an instrumental-vocal approach, a rhythmic phrasing and an improvisation that is reminiscent of many of her trumpet playing influences (Chet Baker, Roy Hargrove and Art Farmer to name a few). Her musical stylings are reflective of Erykah Badu and Stevie Wonder as they possess what she believes to be the true essence of music- harmonic complexity, strong melodic contour and lyrical honesty with an absolutely relentless underlying groove. Taylor has shared the stage with Moonchild, Becca Stevens, Bahamadia and Georgia Anne Muldrow. She released her fourth studio album, Up Up and Away, on August 1st 2019. Her song "California" off of that album has garnered over 300,000 streams on platforms worldwide. In the dumpster fire that was 2020, Taylor released three singles, "The Fire", "Ready" and most recently, "I Am". She plans to release more music this year.
