Sydney singer-songwriter Taj Ralph has unveiled his long-awaited debut EP, Walls 2 Break. Featuring the singles Walls 2 Break, Driftin’ and Something From Nothing, the collection of songs offer an honest and vulnerable side to the musician,
Working with the likes of Golden Vessel. Alice Ivy and Tentendo, the EP continues Ralph's genre-defying exploration of sound, fusing together R&B sonics with threads of jazz and indie-pop. Ralph’s smooth and lush vocal textures shine throughout the collection of songs, as he tackles themes of love, friendship, chasing your dreams and growing up, with a particular focus on breaking down the barriers you find holding you back.
Speaking with MILKY earlier this year, Ralph shared of the EP: "Throughout COVID, I was really writing a lot during COVID and really experimenting with my production and growing as a songwriter. I think I was able to hone into my emotions when writing, which was kinda hard to do when talking about myself objectively. But I think I'm getting better.
Having released music since he was 16, Ralph has been working on a collection of songs, building up the the release of his Walls 2 Break. 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.
