Welcome to BuzzMusic, Jeff Taylor. We adore the uplifting and exciting sound of your groovy single, "Like Gold." What inspired you to create such a passionate and bright piece?
The inspiration came from just a place of experience. We all have that stage of infatuation, where someone catches our eye, our attention, it’s sort of like love at first sight feel. This song was a descriptive explanation of such, seeing someone and comparing the dynamics of their beauty to the physics of gold. One of a kind, love at first sight, and I want you to be mine.
Was it easy to write your passionate and heartfelt lyrics/bars for "Like Gold"? Do you often write your songs with ease?
The actual process for writing did come in a very natural and unforced way. As most of my best songs come with ease, I had just parked in front of the studio and I was going in there with nothing, no ideas, no beats, or anything just playing my beatstars app scrolling through a list of producers hoping for something to stick, and as soon as it came on I kind of harmonized “Love’ll make you blind I know” and after that everything clicked. I went from stressing the entire ride to the studio trying to find something to write to, to then getting to the studio and just having everything flow with ease, I then purchased the beat recorded the song, and here we are now.
Who produced the groovy and exciting Afrobeat-like production for "Like Gold"? What vibe did you want the sonics to give off?
The producer for the record is a producer that goes by the name of ‘Young Taylor’. I don’t know him personally but I’ve worked with him in the past on songs like ‘No Girlfriend’ and ‘Keep it G’ [unreleased]. The vibe I wanted the song to give off was basically just a feel-good vibe, the same way as in the record I talk about ‘love, at first sight, is the same way I wanted listeners to hear the song, love at first listen. Something unique, refreshing, and memorable.
What do you hope to make your audience feel when listening to "Like Gold"?
I just want people to feel good, I want people to feel connected to the song and be one with the song as I am. I want women to feel as if I’m talking to them, to boost their confidence, morale and realize their worth is like gold. I want males to feel as if they would dedicate this record to a female who makes them feel that love at first sight feels. Overall I want everyone to feel the positivity of the record and have it put them in a positive space whether they're driving to work, listening in the gym or it randomly comes on shuffle.
