Press- Heart on a Wire
Under Fire Video Premier-Mother Church Pew
“You’ve got to keep your head up under fire, keep your head up high” sings Taylor Whitaker in her haunting new single, “Under Fire”; the smoky-voiced chanteuse delivers motivational lyrics with alt-folk sensibilities in this song she penned shortly after moving to the Music City.
While experiencing the complexities of the music business and finding her voice in a new city, she wrote the song about overcoming the obstacles encountered in pursuit of her dream, and wants to inspire others to keep moving forward.

OBSIDIAN SUN FROM HEART ON A WIRE | TAYLOR WHITAKER MUSIC | NASHVILLE, TN LIFESTYLE AND MUSIC BLOGGER
A Milwaukee native and now a Nashville transplant, Taylor Whitaker writes music about the complexities of life: love both unconditional and unrequited, life both glorious and heartbreaking. Her melodic and often folk-sounding songs are derived from her passion and experiences. She provides the listener, soulful folk with a country fried twang.
Today, her new single “Obsidian Sun” releases and it’s a folk alternative song written after a trip to the ancient Mesoamerican city Teotihuacan. Inspired by the vast beauty and mystery behind the culture and people that built the city, this single has an ambient folk rock style with lyrics dripping with creativity!
“I was so inspired by the landscape in Mexico that I couldn’t help but write a song after leaving. I wanted to have a song that captured the history of the Teotihuacan complex and painted a dark history. One day the whole civilization disappeared and all that was left was this city.”
