I’m doing pretty good. It’s my senior year in high school so between my music and school, things are very busy.
Can you talk to us more about your new single “Always Come Back”?
Always Come Back is super special to me; it’s the first original song of mine that I got to record. I’ve recorded material written for me in the past and I had a great time, but this time around, singing my own song was an amazing experience.
Did any event inspire you to write this song?
Always Come Back was inspired by my grandparents. In January of this year, my grandfather was diagnosed with terminal cancer and it was a shock to our whole family. My mom and I flew out to visit with my grandparents in April. In the car ride to their house, my mom and I talked about how we will always continue to go back there. I wanted to let my grandparents know how much I love them.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes!! We are currently discussing ideas for a video. I really want to visualize my inspiration behind the song.
How was the recording and writing process?
I wrote the chorus and the melody for the song and sent it to my co-writer. He created the music and we finished the song in July. I literally tracked my vocals in a few hours. I love recording but my favorite is performing live.
What role does Edmonton play in your music?
There is a very diverse music scene in Edmonton. There are great establishments that offer opportunities for young artists to hone their craft and perform original material.
How does acting influence your music and the other way around?
For me, acting doesn’t play a role in my music. It’s all about the songs.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s your new album coming along?
I’m working on several ideas right now. No immediate plans for a new album, but hopefully soon.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Not at the moment.
Any plans to hit the road?
I am weighing some options right now for some summer dates.
What else is happening next in Taylor Hambly’ world?
