Welcome to BuzzMusic, Tara Lynn Rye, and congratulations on your latest single, "Twin Flame." This is obviously a very intimate and personal song, with a message that many of us are able to relate to. Was it tough to tap into such a personal and vulnerable experience while writing?
I'm so happy to be here with you, BuzzMusic! I think the only songs worth writing come from that personal and vulnerable place. My best songs always come from this uncomfortable feeling in the pit of my stomach. Whether it's frustration, longing, confusion, or rage, it feels like a ball of energy that I need to release, and I reach for the notes to match it. The words come out as I try to understand those feelings. After I write a song, I usually go, "Oh, that's how I feel. That's what I learned". I love that people can resonate with the most honest realizations I have with myself alone at a piano.
Your love and passion for music and performing are extremely apparent in your music. Do you remember where your love for music all began?
When I was five, I used to stand at the end of my driveway with a cassette player blaring the Temptations and performing for all the cars passing by. I'm pretty sure I would wear a bikini too. My poor parents didn't know what to do with me. I was always giving them hell. When I was young, I sang in musicals, but I took a long break from singing, about ten years to be exact. I became an actor and filmmaker. When the pandemic hit, I moved in with my parents, and in all that downtime, I taught myself how to play piano, and the songs just started pouring out-- I guess I had a lot to say. Music was the biggest gift I could have asked for in such a dark time. I'm so grateful to have gained another outlet to tell stories.
What sort of atmosphere and vibe did you want the instrumentals and production to give off in "Twin Flame?" Who helped bring the sonics to life?
I was so lucky to meet April Rose Gabrielli and KULICK, my co-producers and co-writers, on the track. They are both fabulous artists themselves and really took the time to bring the Tara Lynn Rye sound to life. I love the duality of the acoustic and electric guitar, the clash between the whimsical and delicate verses, and the explosive rock & roll choruses. I'm a sucker for electric guitars solos, and drum builds. I wanted the listener to feel that swell of emotion one feels reminiscing on what once was, and then the inevitable come down from the high.
Did you have a specific idea in mind of you who hoped this song would resonate with the most? What do you hope listeners will take away from this song while hearing it for the first time?
"Twin Flame" was written by a Tara who was grieving— flip-flopping between romanticizing a past relationship and choosing to step away. I was chasing the feeling and spark that died with the person I perceived him to be. Sometimes beautiful things aren't supposed to last forever, and that's okay. At least we get to experience all that vibrancy, even if it is fleeting. I wanted to give people a song that they could crank up in the car-- something that they could sing and cry to. At least... that's what I've been doing since I recorded it, haha.
What's next for you?
I am playing a show with my full band at Breaking Sound on April 6th in Hollywood at Adults Only. My shows are always a witchy, crazy good time. I'm told I'm quite dramatic. Come rock out with some friends! I'm also dropping my 3rd single, "Invite the Devil," on April 8th, and my full EP drops this summer!
