INTERVIEW: TRYON

Can you talk to us more about your single “Somebody To Love Me”?

Somebody To Love Me is a song we wrote in Toronto with one of our favorite producers. It was one of the first songs we wrote for this record and it just came so naturally to us.. the song has a throwback feel that really influenced the direction of this record.

Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?

Several, actually.. there have been quite a few times where we’ve had to work up the courage to tell a crush how we were feeling.. so that’s really what this song is about.

Any plans to release a video for the single?

We’re planning to release a video at some point, but right now were focused on finishing the record!

How was the recording and writing process?

We try to write in different cities as much as possible.. seeing different parts of the world really helps our creative process. “Somebody to Love Me” happened to take place in Toronto, one of our favorite cities. We walked into the studio and the producer had a few basic ideas started.. as soon as we heard the track we knew we had to write it. We loved the MJ Vibe it had.

What was it like to work with Gary Baker and how did that relationship develop?

Gary is Amazing.. we joke that he’s like the third member of Tryon. We met through a mutual friend in Nashville and we hit it off instantly. Gary really liked our music and we signed to his publishing company.. Over the next few years he gave us all we needed to be creative and find ourselves as artists while writing new music.. he’s been an absolute blessing.

How do you feel about the reception it has received?

It’s been the biggest dream come true to have created a song that reached Top 40… Having a song that is impacting people in a positive way means the whole world to us. Every time we play the song and someone sings it back it’s the most incredible feeling. We owe everything to those who have and continue to support us.

Does Michael Jackson plays a role in your music?

MJ is one of our BIGGEST influences! He’s obviously the King of Pop and even being asked this question is such a crazy thing.. it’s an honor to even be mentioned as someone who is influenced by him.

Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?

We are hard at work right now trying to finish our record.. it’s a great process, we have all these songs and new ones we’re currently working on.. we cannot wait to get this record out and share it with everyone!

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

No release date set yet, but it is coming soon!

Any plans to hit the road?

We’ve been on the road for about 6 months promoting the single and we’re gearing up for a tour this summer and fall.. we are really looking forward to it!

What else is happening next in TRYON’s world?

Travel, writing, shows, and seeing ALL of your beautiful faces soon 🙂
