Hometown: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Genre: Folk

Why We're Excited: Taylor Janzen sets her warm, expressive voice against a ringing electric guitar, but otherwise leaves her sad words largely unadorned as she sings frankly and with remarkable clarity about dysfunctional relationships and mental health. It's an approach that situates her alongside like-minded breakout stars like Stella Donnelly and Phoebe Bridgers, as well as Paramore's awesome Hayley Williams, who's sung Janzen's praises online.
