FRESH: ‘Driving With Tears In My Eyes’ – TriPed

TriPed is “Driving With Tears In My Eyes”

TriPed is a 23 year old solo pop artist from London. he started creating and performing music shortly after moving to the city at the age of 18, formerly under the pseudonym “JustTizze” up to the beginning of this year; he has so far released three singles and one EP. His new song, “Driving With Tears In My Eyes”, describes the experience of going on a long drive in order to get away from it all.

It was written and produced by TriPed (real name Tiziano Parducci) himself, like all of his songs, and it features personal and introspective lyrics. His influences are old school R&B, House, Pop, and Dance music, and much of his music borrows elements from all these genres; he has been compared to George Michael and describes himself as “Too vanilla for the arty kids, too eccentric for everyone else!”.

After moving to London shortly after his 18th birthday, TriPed started pursuing his dreams, creating and performing music around the city. He released his first single “Your Dance” in February 2019, marking the beginning of his career as a recording artist. He has since consistently put out music of various genres and styles, such as the frenetic Bounce-Pop track “Work Now”, or one of his most recent releases, a catchy R&B/Dance Pop hybrid called “Where Are You?”.

“Driving With Tears In My Eyes” is a beautiful synth-driven yet haunting number sung with pure emotion and grit…and who wouldn’t be “Driving With Tears In My Eyes” down the M25?! Is this the first time the motorway has made it into song?? The song has an mid-80’s chill to it with TriPed’s varied vocal range layered over the top. This is without doubt, his most emotive creation yet and a gateway to the rest of his tunes for all those who have yet to discover TriPed.

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!
