Taylah Carroll is a folk artist with guts. Not afraid to lay it all on the table, Carroll’s lyrics are introspective, evocative and rich with observational wit. But don’t mistake this as an invitation to indulge in sadness, for Carroll’s take-home message is one of hope, as she highlights the beauty in fragility through a nuanced and detailed lens.
Hallmarked by her commanding vocals and the playful transitions between vulnerability and strength, Taylah Carroll’s music is equal parts confessional indie-folk, and dreamy alt-rock. With stylistic echoes of Mazzy Star, and Angel Olsen, the singer-songwriter cites Tom Waits, Tori Amos, and Radiohead as key inspirations, the amalgamation of which have her leaning into nostalgia, with one foot always placed firmly ahead.
"Blossoming Melbourne Artist". Daniel Hanssen for The AU Review
Set in the eastern suburb of Melbourne, and recorded alongside Producer Tim Harvey (Lisa Mitchell, Gena Rose Bruce, Jade Imagine), Taylah Carroll’s debut release ‘Vermont’ is a characteristically wry and charming exploration of personal baggage, and the way it informs our behaviour in future relationships.
Join Taylah and special guests Pablo Pace and Georgia Knight on Thursday the 4th of July, for an evening of sad songs, swaying, dancing and fun, as she officially launches her debut single into the world.
