Paris Taylor Shares the Deep and Dark "Story of a Killer"

Serenading us from her home in Texas, the pop artist and singer-songwriter Paris Taylor releases her conceptual sophomore single, "Story of a Killer."

With a voice that's often compared to Amy Lee of Evanescence, Paris Taylor has no problem gaining traction and recognition with merely two singles under her belt. Taylor is currently gearing up to release her debut EP, 'Insight,' produced by Eric Johnson of NI Music Group and Danny Jay of Jettsetter Music Group.

Now releasing her sophomore single, "Story of a Killer," Paris Taylor shines a bright light on the difficulties and tribulations she's faced, striving to help others with her sincere story. "'Story of a Killer' is about the struggles I faced being bullied and getting diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto's...I learned everyone has battles of their own, and it's okay not to feel okay," explained Taylor.

Listening to the single, "Story of a Killer," the song gently opens with soothing acoustic guitar strokes, downtempo rim hits, a somber violin, and tender piano melodies. As Paris Taylor begins vocalizing her deepened emotions when in the midst of inner turmoil, she portrays an incredibly heartfelt and emotional lyrical landscape that leaves any listener pondering their own trials and tribulations.

As Paris Taylor continues to sweep us off our feet with each breathy vocal and detailed lyric, the surrounding sonics begin to pick up with added strings that sonically serenade us with the utmost emotion and heart. Paris Taylor later leads us towards the introspective outro, portraying the sadness she felt when no one bothered to reach out and lend a helping hand.
