The singer and songwriter known as Taylor D has released his latest official single, “Daddy's Girl.” Like previous releases in Taylor D's repertoire, “Daddy's Girl” has been proudly published on the Studio in the Sticks independent record label without the direction of the corporate music industry. An upbeat, heartfelt and wholesome work of genuine American pop rock music, “Daddy's Girl” showcases Taylor D as a true voice of the American west in the 21st century.
Arizona's Taylor D cites as main artistic influences the Beatles, the Eagles, Jackson Browne, Steve Miller Band, America, Simon and Garfunkel, and Steely Dan. His own sound blends subtle country notes with overt elements of classic rock and contemporary pop music for a sound which can appeal to a wide variety of listeners all over the world.
Core of and key to the popularity of Taylor D's music is his insistence on earnestness and authenticity.
“So much music out there is artificial sounds/loops/grooves and beats,” says Taylor D of this. “It sounds great but it's synthetic. It's perfect, yet kinda fake at the same time … I record from the raw. I use real instruments void of all these artificial studio tricks. I don't believe in tricking the listeners. This way when you play live, it's the real deal.”
This makes even more sense when one takes into account Taylor D's reasons for making music to begin with.
“Honestly,” he says, “as a super-achiever and a guy that would take on just about any dare, between martial arts, military service, and contracting over four-thousand commercial and residential projects, I needed some stress relief.”
Working out digital compositions on a DAW doesn't seem as relaxing as pounding out pop music on a guitar. But that's not Taylor D's only motivation for releasing “Daddy's Girl.” He's also inspired by his daughter, naturally.
“Daddy and daughter relationships are amazing, crazy and zany times, to be cherished!” he writes. “Just like that, overnight that little baby in the palm of your hand turns ten years old! Wow!
What a ride! Okay, so let's make this song reflective and fun! I love to smile and laugh.
The world needs much more smiling and laughing for sure! I hope this song helps that!”
