“…exploded as one of pop music’s go-to songwriters.”
“Tayla Parx is an artist in every way you can imagine. Whether it’s songwriting, singing,
or producing, her creativity shines through all elements of her craft.”
Grammy-nominated songwriter, vocalist, actress and businesswoman Tayla Parx shares a new track “Something In My Eye” via her own TaylaMade Records—listen/share HERE.
“‘Something In My Eye’ is my most honest song yet,” Parx says. “I’ve always been the ‘strong friend’ or the person who is always smiling, and it put immense pressure on me to fall into this whole toxic positivity trap. But recently, I’ve found strength in being able to accept support for myself, for whatever emotions and struggles I’m having at the time. ‘Something In My Eye’ is a reflection of the space I was in of shying away from some of my feelings and moving into the space I am in now, where I’m facing them head on.”
