Gold Coast-based, alt country artist, Emily Grace Taylor, today unveils her most fully-realised musical endeavour yet with the release of her latest single, ‘Say What You Need.’ Brimming with bright acoustic strums, spaghetti western lead runs, and wistful vocals drenched in longing, the track exhibits a rhythm that propels forward like a steam train devouring tracks toward the horizon.

‘Say What You Need’ is undoubtedly a level up for the veteran musician, who has cut her teeth across a range of projects and genres for more than a decade. The single, laden with tactile moments throughout its recording, stands as a testament to Taylor's growth as an artist within the Americana genre. And while it maintains a strong flavour of the country twang she’s become known for, it also introduces a cinematic quality that glistens like a prism of light reflecting off a '70s disco ball. This bold, new approach radiates with confidence, both in its musical composition and in Taylor’s voice, which finds a profound connection within the robust soundscapes.

However, her boldness extends beyond the musical realm, as lyrically, ‘Say What You Need’ captures her at her most direct and assured. The song portrays a level of confidence akin to someone fresh from a therapy session, ready to assert personal boundaries and make a profound impact on her audience.

Addressing the inspiration behind the lyrics, Taylor reflects, "Sharing our wants and needs with the people we love can be hard. I’ve seen firsthand how being unable to express them can break a relationship. We often want to appear strong, put together, and are too proud to say what we need. For me, I want to be there for the person I love, and will happily be a soft place to land whenever they need it. This song is about the willingness and devotion to being whatever your loved one needs, as long as they’re willing to say it out loud."

‘Say What You Need’ marks a pivotal moment in Emily Grace Taylor's career, solidifying her status as a distinctive voice within the Americana/alt country genre in Australia.
