Earlier this year, London-based singer-songwriter, Aaron Taylor, quietly and somewhat mysteriously, without too much fanfare, released his debut EP, Still Life. The three songs contained on the EP caught the attention of a host of music bloggers, and one song, “Lesson Learnt”, appeared on a major TV advert for Apple Watch.
Aaron has since been working on new material, and “Be Alright” is the first song to be taken from a brand new EP titled, Better Days, due for release this autumn. On “Be Alright” Aaron develops further the intoxicating fusion of soul, funk, gospel and R&B he revealed on his debut.
He wrote the song as a statement of support, “Sometimes you need to encourage and remind yourself things will be OK” he says. “’Be Alright’ is exactly that: an encouragement to ourselves and a reminder of a simple truth that we will all be fine in time. We may need to rebel, we may need to struggle, but we’ll be good”.
The song forms part of a wider story behind the full EP – more details to be revealed in due course. Aaron will play live in the UK, supporting The Invisible on the following dates:
Monday, September 26 – Soup Kitchen, Manchester
Tuesday, September 27 – Louisiana, Bristol
Wednesday, September 28 – OSLO, London
