A couple weeks back something interesting came across my email. It was about a singer/songwriter from Seattle and the description that accompanied said “Combining the energy of Stevie Nicks, the lyrical honesty of Joni Mitchell, and the musical experimentation of Led Zeppelin…” so needless to say, I had to take a listen. And to my surprise I rather enjoyed what I heard. And now I present Taryn Hadfield to you. Her debut album, Manic Pixie Dream Girl tells the story of an unapologetic, strong and determined young woman who’s over being afraid of taking risks. Taryn was one of the first musicians to take her talents to the online streaming platform Twitch, Taryn’s weekly performances have cultivated a vast and loyal fan base of listeners from around the globe who’ve fallen in love with her highly dynamic, intensely emotional and disarmingly honest songs. Interestingly a lot of the inspiration for this album came from a very deep introspective watching of Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. When asked where that came from Taryn said “I spent a lot of my life being the manic pixie dream girl. In every relationship, friendship, role, job, I tried to be whoever someone else wanted me to be. I wanted to be that perfectly vivacious and appealingly quirky girl for everyone. Then one day, during my millionth tearful viewing of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, I realized I couldn’t be the side character anymore. I, a former manic pixie dream girl, was going to be fully me and I wasn’t going to be sorry for any of it anymore. This album is that story.” With a story like that and songs to back it up, Taryn is sure to be on her way of leaving her mark along the way!
