Featured Artist #51: Introducing Matt Taylor on Fresh Dose.

As the fifty-first feature on the Fresh Dose. blog, we are introducing the ever so talented Matt Taylor.

Each week Fresh Dose. will be featuring a new artist from our playlist on our blog to highlight great independent talent.

We asked Matt Taylor five questions to help us understand a little more about his song titled End Like This.

1: Choose 3 words that best describe you as an artist?

Hmmmm, I’d say New Wave Pop

2. What was the story or inspiration for writing this record?

I’ve thought about this a lot, I feel like my answer always changes… I think it’s just been inspired by everything that’s happened in my love life so far lol. I guess it’s focused on one person, but there are so many parallels to past situations.

3: Shout out section - who’s your favourite independent artist we should listen out for?

Ooooooh, I love this. I have a few, my friends are so talented! If you love pop bops then go check out Kirsty Grant, if you want something darker then I’d say listen to Emma See or Zeli. And if you’re just looking to have a good cry then put on some Rosin or Seeva. Lastly I’d say if you’re out to find something a bit unexpected then check out Finnegan Tui. All of them are honestly so talented!

4: What’s your other favourite record on this week's top 20? Why?

I really like that “Shiver” Track by “The eight five two”, those chords are so lush. Also what a cool name for a project!

5. Our sister organization @hyper_tribe is all about creating the next generation of artists, what piece of advice would you give to them that helped you the most in your music career?

I always say the same thing, try to make your sound unique, even just by being yourself. I think everyone is looking for authenticity right now. Also, surround yourself with people you trust! This takes time to find, but you’ll need them when shit hits the fan ahahaha!
