This acoustic track plays into Taylor’s strength as a performer without the bells and whistles, simply showcasing his emotional range at its best.
Taylor debuted his first full-length album back in September. He caught up with Rated R&B to discuss the new album, as well as why he proudly wears the positive R&B crown.
“It’s interesting because there’s so much negativity in the world at the moment, and so much reason to be down and be depressed,” Taylor explained to Rated R&B, when asked about making productive and hopeful R&B. “I don’t even have to tell you the reasons because we all know what they are at the moment. If my music can be someone’s reason to keep going, then I’ll happily take that positive R&B title.”
Taylor also elaborated on the title of his album, which is named after the son of Daedalus from Greek mythology. “I related to the idea of wanting to be free and wanting to ascend and reach a certain height, but being aware that those desires and those aspirations come with limits, warnings and so on.”
