Watch our full interview with Taj Ralph!
Earlier this month, Sydney singer-songwriter Taj Ralph made his return with his superb new single, Driftin’. Set to feature on the musicians forthcoming EP, Walls 2 Break, the track explores the ebb and flow of friendship, inspired by personal events in Ralph’s own life. We hit up the arcade with Taj to play some games, talk about his music and get to know him.
Collaborating on the track with acclaimed producers Alice Ivy and Tentendo, alongside a killer drum beat delivered by Golden Vessel, the song continues Ralph’s genre-defying exploration of sound, fusing together warm rhythms around smooth R&B vocals and ab immersive arrangement. Cementing himself at the forefront of Australia’s Indie-R&B scene.
Having released music since he was 16, Ralph has been working on a collection of songs, building up the the release of his debut EP. Launching onto the scene with his debut single Beat The Keeper, the musician captured the attention of the triple j Unearthed team, who chose Ralph as a finalist for Unearthed High in 2017. Having released a string of singles since, Ralph has been added to rotation on the station, and also embarked on a number of headline performances, as well as partnering with Niche Productions as his touring agent.
