America’s new sweetheart Taylor Castro has announced her first ever European, Asian and Australasia World Virtual Tour, hosted by Live Nation. In an effort to reach fans during a time of social distancing while still giving audiences a personalised experience, Taylor Castro is launching an orchestrated live streamed world tour that will virtually reach various cities on different dates across Europe, Asia and Australasia from May 21st-23rd.
Castro will perform songs from her repertoire including current single ‘Abyss’ and, the title track to her forthcoming album ‘Girl Afraid’ which will be available for live viewing on Live Nation’s recently launched Live From Home platform as well as hosted across Live Nation’s regional social media channels (see dates and links below). Viewing will also be on Castro’s YouTube channel post live stream.
Speaking about her new venture, Taylor said: “My first Live Nation World Virtual Tour is beyond exciting. Getting to perform these songs to a global audience is a dream come true and I’m so grateful for the once in a lifetime opportunity I’ve been given thanks to the incredible and kind John Giddings and the wonderful people at Live Nation. I hope everyone from every corner of the globe can “come” watch what I hope is a first of many innovative performances!”
Her representative John Giddings added: “I’m really excited to take on representation for Taylor, and help to help develop her career worldwide. This Live Nation opportunity is a fantastic starting point to reach a Global audience. She is a very special new discovery and I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of her in the near future.”
If you know Taylor Castro, you already know that she composes and writes all her own music, lifting lyrics from what must surely be the pages of her diary. She has already made a name for herself in lyric-focused music circles with her previous release – ‘Girl, Afraid’. The track is a deeply personal offering about the singer-songwriter’s struggles with OCD. Castro has now returned with a track about struggling to understand someone who remains a mystery.
A more upbeat release than ‘Girl, Afraid’, ‘Abyss’ makes use of summer-y synths and finger clicking beats, building towards a chorus which breaks like an ocean wave, blending euphoric instrumentation with Castro’s startlingly perceptive lyrical content. In the song, Castro makes use of mythologically-inspired lyrics, comparing the boy in question to Zeus’ son, before remarking that “when you frown / You set fire to kingdoms,”
Poetic lyricism such as this is one sure fire way Taylor Castro sets herself apart from the oversaturated market of pop music. The instrumentation indicates Castro as someone with a keen eye on the trends of the music industry, with her outstanding lyrics tucked away in a package disguised as the hit of the summer.
Taylor Castro is a talent caught right at the beginning of her journey, and anyone lucky enough to catch her live on her world virtual tour are fortunate to share it with her.
