I got the chance to interview the man with the Tasty sound the amazing Deolataylor and this was how it went!!!!
Who is Deolataylor?
“Deola Taylor is a ‘small boy from a small town’ with a nourished mindset to conquer grounds and shoot for the stars. Deola Taylor as a music brand, singer, songwriter, and performer, is committed to committing all his gifts, talents, skills and every bit of influence that he gets, to changing his Community, State, neighboring States, Nigeria, West Africa, Africa and the World at large. He has a voice and he wants the whole world to hear it. His music is a journey and he’s ready to walk and work through it. He wants to possess the land with his ‘TASTY SOUND’, with consistent hard work and commitment. His sound is meant “to pierce every soul and heal every heart”. His music is a gospel to every streets and corner, giving satisfaction at every level and different social platforms. He’s ready to beat the best and be the best. WHEN THE MIND IS RIGHT…….THE TIME IS RIGHT”
How long have you been in the music game and how did you get started?
“With all sincerity, I am not up to a year in the music scene. I’m actually going to clock one year July 20th, 2018. I started out behind the scene, understudying people and events. By people, I mean; giving a close look and check to some senior colleagues do it? Involving myself in creative processes and paying attention to every detail”
Who were the first musical influences that you can remember?
“I had a good number of them. I came in contact with quite a number of music products and I was able to consume as much as I can. But I listened more to Stevie Wonder and El-DeBarge”
Studio work or performing live, which of these do you prefer most and why?
“PERFORMING LIVE. Music is an art, and the only way I feel I can justify that artistic value is to present and deliver it live to my audience members. You know, Hitting the center stage, I get to connect with my listeners and take them through the process and the journey of creation. They get the chance to an extent to feel what I feel and get a clearer picture of what the song entails. Performing live with every other musical instrument that is needed for me, is just TRUE AND REAL”
“I don’t think I have yet. Permit me to say the best is yet to come. But of course, JEKAJOMALO my first masterpiece came out from a place of truth”
“Hmmm….I’d say my ability to wing on varieties of genres and style. With my ‘tasty sound’, I practically settle virtually everyone watching and listening. My energy level is not something to joke with too. Like I say every time, ‘it can only get better.”
“What else if not PASSION? I will say it over and over again, ‘music is my way of life’. I’m not just ‘a musician; I am a music lover! I can go the extra mile for music. Not just for my music but also for other creative artists (s) and music visionaries. My purpose for music brought out the passion and my passion is bringing out my perception. So there goes the joy before us”
“The content comes first. That is the message I want to pass across, and the direction I want it to fall. Then, I could now create a tune or chant in my head and later fix lyrics into it, then the beat. It can also be the other way round though. But the content comes first before any other thing for me”.
“I wouldn’t want to disclose in particular. But just know that we gat enough and a whole lot coming pretty soon. I and my team are working so hard to put something worthy on the dining table for you all to consume. (we are a sucker for perfection and good standard). Just STAY CONNECTED and keep your fingers crossed. Thank you”
I am Abimbola lover of good music and I love to write about it also a student, social media manager, creative thinker and content creator.
