Taken by Canadians
After forming in 2012 around the roaring transparency of Ambrosini’s songwriting, the group quickly gained major regional attention, including regular airplay at 91X FM. With three albums under their belt and the wind at their backs, Taken By Canadians are leading a new era of California Rock & Roll, one that is flagrantly honest, elegantly melodic, blissfully contrary and loud as all hell.

Playing music since 1985, living with Bipolar 1 Disorder since 2008, traveling to educate on on mental illness, and tying it all together in her unreleased memoir, Open Book, Veronica May's purpose is to spread her messages of compassion, understanding, hope, triumph and the importance of trial. Her music and illustrations depicting mental illness awaken the mind, stir the heart, and open the eyes to the wild world of thought and perception.
