by Christopher Smith

Rising singer/songwriter Tawny K is proud to announce the release of her latest single “Listen Up”. Produced by Matthew Williams, the track is a fun and infectious pop hit that is sure to have fans singing along and down on the dance floor. Fans will be excited to know that Tawny has also released an accompanying full-length music video for the track. Born and raised in Adelaide, South Australia, Tawny developed a passion for music from a very young age. As an artist, she has always been heavily influenced by some of the biggest international names in pop, including the likes of Justin Bieber, Rita Ora, Anne Marie, and Dua Lipa. Although Tawny grew up around music and has played instruments since the time she was in primary school, she only started writing her own music from the age of 21.

During this time, record producer, Matthew Williams helped Tawny experiment with the elements of her own sound. Combined with Tawny’s natural ability to write expressive and emotional lyrics, she soon found herself creating music that was fresh, honest, and enjoyable. Most importantly, Tawny has always valued music that remains true to herself and who she wants to become as an artist. As a result, there is a powerful sense of reliability in each of her songs. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in Tawny’s latest release “Listen Up”. Here, the young artist shows off her willingness to talk about topics that are real and relatable, by singing about the need to be understood and listened to by friends and loved ones. For listeners, the track begs the question as to whether or not it is worth it to get up and walk away from a problem, or to stick around and see it through.

Musically, the track features an upbeat dance rhythm, which ultimately builds towards a powerful EDM/electronic breakdown near the end of the chorus. This unique blend of EDM and pop takes “Listen Up” to the next level. Whether it be on the dance floor with friends, or hanging out around the house, this track is sure to get listeners singing along and feeling inspired.

To help celebrate the release of this track, Tawny K has also produced a full-length music video. The video follows a fun-filled “getaway” in the Grand Hotel, meant to drive home the point that sometimes you just need a little space to escape. Produced over a crazy 30-hour period, the video is the result of an incredible and passionate team who each found a way to contribute and help Tawny realise her dream. Ultimately, the release of “Listen Up” has proven to be an important milestone in Tawny K’s young career. It is not only an exciting and fresh new song, but a true example of everything she hopes to become as a rising artist.

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
