Watch our interview with Taj Ralph!
Sydney singer-songwriter Taj Ralph is capping off his massive year with a brand new track! Following the release of his long-awaited debut EP, Walls 2 Break, the musician has today shared his new single, Just Fine.
Produced by Sydney artist Dave Jenkins Jr (Not A Boys Name), Ralph's smooth and lush vocals float above 90s hip-hop inspired beats, made complete with a massive hook to sing along to when you need a pick me up. The feel-good release is all about celebrating your wins and not dwelling on the losses, bringing relatable lyricism and anecdotes.
“Just Fine is a feel-good song I wrote for myself to tell me to appreciate what I’ve got, trust the process, and keep moving forward,” Ralph shares. “It’s easy to forget to live in the moment when you’re focused on the future. I thought that’s something people could relate to.” He adds of working with Jenkins, “Dave Jenkins [Jr] really helped take the song from a demo to a full-bodied track. He killed it, and so did Lola (his daughter) on the hook!”
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, Ralph captured the attention of the triple j Unearthed team, who chose the singer-songwriter as a finalist for Unearthed High in 2017.
