Hailing from the weather-stacked, leaf-beaten hills of Vermont, Taylor Smith (who records under the moniker T. W., probably to avoid the Swift thing) is an engagingly poetic indie-folkster who sometimes wishes he were a mad, electro-experimental, nu-wave, grunge-core, post-music soundscapist instead. Thankfully for the rest of us, none of that is apparent in his actual songs. Much.
He has been described as: “piercingly honest” – “wise beyond his years” – “pretty interesting, yeah” – “oh, that guy” – and “…who?” He believes strongly in autumn, T.S. Eliot, and the sounds of ice cracking in a glass of water.
He hopes you like his music, and even if you don’t, he respectfully hopes you realize the value of having one more beautiful thing to dislike than before.
He would, lastly, like to express solidarity with all others who feel uncomfortable writing about themselves in the third person.
(And like a red leaf wind she lifted lazily –
All butterflies –
And like a blue shout she showered to infinity –
Withering into the wind, roaring against that bend, the rock of all ages–
Black down, black down, black down – )
