Discovery: Taigh Wade

Taigh Wade is an Australian singer-songwriter and musician with a folky sound to his music, as latest release Lifeline shows.

Lifeline has a lovely flowing guitar melody running throughout it, which works well with Taigh’s gorgeous vocal style. It’s quite a quiet track, but this only makes it sound more beautiful – you can really feel the emotion in the vocals. Some percussion is added later on, but it’s very subtle. The backing vocals are also used to great effect, sounding haunting at times.
