Toronto’s Taylor Knox has shared the first single and video for “Running Into Love” off his upcoming debut full-length LOVE out June 9 on Cadence Music.
In support of the album, Taylor will be touring this summer making stops in Waterloo, Hamilton, Montreal, a hometown show in Toronto on June 23, followed by an appearance at Ottawa Blues Fest on July 8. See below for a full list of tour dates. More to be announced soon.
Taylor Knox’s 2015 debut EP, Lines, marked the arrival of a rare breed of singer/songwriter, one whose instincts are naturally attuned to the power pop principles of crunchy guitars, smooth harmonies and tales of teenage heartache. On the upcoming LOVE, Knox worked alongside his old friend Afie Jurvanen (aka Bahamas) to produce a few tracks alongside co-producer Josh Korody and mixing team of Gus Can Go and Werner F. Jurvanen contributes some of his trademark guitar stylings as well, but as on the EP, Knox handles most of the instrumentation himself. The album also has good friend, Molly Rankin (of Alvvays), contributing background vocals on several tracks including on “Running Into Love”.
Knox has grown up since his debut EP, and channeled the wonder of this new phase of life into his first-and aptly titled-full-length album, LOVE. While so much of LOVE sounds effortless, it’s the direct result of the wealth of experience Knox gained over the past decade through playing with a host of Canada’s most acclaimed artists, including Owen Pallett, Rich Aucoin, Luke Doucet, Hayden, Jason Collett and Alvvays.
The singer/songwriter’s new alternative track is light, easy-going, and well-suited for the summer. this track definitely makes us excited and eager to listen to the rest of the album!
