Music Submission, Taylor B-W

Artist or Band Name: 
Taylor B-W

Sydney-born Kiwi singer-songwriter, Taylor B-W, is one of the new generation of emerging indie artists.  Her sound blends soulful, Michael Jackson-style melodies and moody, Banks-esque lyrics in an electro-pop and R&B shell.

She asserts a strong presence on stage, however B-W confesses her Instagram account reveals a rather goofy and funny persona: “I am, first and foremost, a daggy person at heart.”

B-W rediscovered her passion for music after initially pursuing an acting career.  However, she also switched her attention to wildlife conservation, becoming a qualified zookeeper at Sydney’s Taronga Training Institute, when her health suffered under the pressure of acting.

She writes and sings to help release herself from inner self-conflict: “My songs clear out the cobwebs in my past and present.  I use lyrics and music as my way of soul-searching and to heal the cracks in my relationship with me.  I guess, I’m always just trying to make sense of it all.”

B-W found the confidence to put her songs out there in 2017 when she won the Australian segment of the unsigned-artist competition, Emergenza. Singing songs she had written, she then went on to win Best Vocalist, and came fourth overall, at the 2018 international finals in Germany.  

Taylor B-W is the daughter of Dragon frontman and NZ music legend, Mark Williams, and former Kiwi dancer and show business administrator, Pamela Beadle.  B-W completed a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in music, at the University of Sydney.

Music Submission, No Serial Killer

Artist or Band Name: 
No Serial Killer

What does the name ‘No Serial Killer’ signify? 

It refers to the fact that as a 46 year old, I am happy to have not turned into a serial killer. By 2019 standards, I’m doing pretty well. If any of our listeners is a serial killer, you’re not welcome to be one of our fans. We only want ‘no serial killers’ to like ‘No Serial Killer’. Killing people due to one’s own inadequacies we find deeply offensive. Don’t hurt others is the message. 

What does ‘Bass Piano’ mean? 

All of our tracks use piano as the bass guitar in the song. There is no bass guitar in any song. 'Yes I do' has no piano at all though. 

Influences? 

Sigue Sigue Sputnik. Rock and roll of all eras. Any music with a good vibe. We take influences from music, TV, movies, video games, life in general etc. 

Why is the group faceless? 

This is a one-off project so our personalities are irrelevant. I wanted to make a great album and we've achieved that goal. The album is entitled ‘The Greatest Music Album In Recorded Human History’. It’s our way of saying we think the music is quite good. :) 13 tracks, all classics in their own right. How many albums do you know of where there are absolutely no filler tracks? Every song is fantastic! 

When will the album be released? 

May 2019. 

Who are you? 

I am AKM. I wrote all of the songs, played the bass piano on all tracks and offered vocal direction to the singers. I have used a variety of professional singers and session musicians on the album. I’m British. The vocalists and session musicians are American.
