Listen to the new single from Upsahl

Upsahl's new single is a catchy little beast! It's a perfect little slice of indie pop that I can see becoming a pretty pervasive earworm after just a few listens. Open your ears to this and you'll see what I mean...

It’s nearly impossible to believe that Taylor Upsahl, who goes by simply Upsahl, just tossed her mortarboard in the air as a high school graduate. For someone so young, the Phoenix, AZ native is a remarkably skilled singer, songwriter and performer. It’s no wonder the Phoenix New Times proclaimed that her “songwriting will blow you away” and that her songs “transcend her teenage years, with catchy lyrics and melodies relatable to all ages.”

Upsahl’s latest release “Can You Hear Me Now” is the product of a collaboration with artist Max Frost. A rhythmic and poignant track about the tribulations of love, "Can You Hear Me Now" is available today on all DSPs.

“It’s a message to someone on the other end of a failing relationship,” shares Upsahl. "It’s the kind of relationship that has been dysfunctional for a long period of time to the point where one person decides it isn’t worth the stress, time, or energy anymore. I’ve watched so many women in my life stay in a relationship that they obviously aren’t happy in. They settle for a partner that doesn’t appreciate them or make them feel like the badasses they are.”

Born into a musical family, Upsahl has started playing both guitar and piano at the age of five. “My dad was touring in bands long before I was born,” shares Upsahl, “so I was lucky enough to have a band room in my house all throughout my childhood. Having access to instruments and a thorough understanding of music allowed me to start writing my own stuff when I was 13.”

By the time she was 14 years old, Upsahl had written and released a self-titled EP, which gained much-deserved recognition throughout the Phoenix music scene. Then, in 2015, she pieced together a band and self-produced her first full-length album, Viscerotonic.

At just 18-years-old, Upsahl released her third studio album, Unfamiliar Light, in February, which brilliantly showcased her stunning vocals and mesmerizing piano work.

Influenced by artists like The Shins, Spoon, Lorde and Beyonce, Upsahl has an undeniable ability to write songs that can permeate your psyche. Now that she’s a high school graduate, Upsahl will be spending most of her time in Los Angeles, working with producers and collaborators on another new album, and bringing her irresistible music to the masses.

“I’m incredibly excited to see what’s next,” affirms Upsahl.  “Not only has my sound evolved, but so have I.”
