Tatum Quinn goes towards enveloping pop-rock with a humble indie rock with this incredibly atmospheric, poetically captivating new single, “You Lost Me,” which is always a particular favorite worth turning up the volume for and a name you never forget.
Trained at Berklee College of Music and featured twice on Ubisoft’s enormously successful Just Dance, 25-year-old Pop/Rock, Singer/Songwriter Tatum Quinn has opened for Kool & the Gang, The Pointer Sisters, April Wine, and Boy George. Quinn’s purpose with her music is to inspire the globe while also giving her followers a place to belong in a world that wants you to match a conventional mold.
Tatum is no stranger to bullying due to a learning condition known as dyslexia. Struggling to graduate from high school in the face of teachers who told her “she’ll never amount to anything” and to “give up on music and find a real career,” which just drove her closer to music! Music saved TQ, and it is still there for her every day! That is why Quinn believes she must establish a secure and enjoyable environment where everyone can be faithfully who they are without fear of being judged! She wants her listeners to know that they are not alone in their struggles since she is right there with them.
Effectively bridging the gap between pop-rock and indie rock tunes, the single “You Lost Me” rains down with organic purity, engaging rhythms, and crisp, clean nostalgia.
This is one of those releases that has a sort of ageless amount of color to it. When it reappears, it looks to be a little more appealing and addictive. Those guitar chords are instantly identifiable, the melody’s rise and fall is mesmerizing, and the gritty drum-line keeps things grounded.
Bold, catchy, and expressive vocals, as well as a strong structure, enable contrast to work its magic just enough to match the soundscape’s high-octane demands.
Along with the optimism of the imagery and musicianship, the words – as hinted by the title – speak the truth, and this suddenly takes things from intimate to poetic, while keeping it all relevant and both vague and engaging.
Easily one of the best, most revealing, and provocative songwriters out right now, with plenty of connections to current events and a few to the musician’s life, if you’re inclined to listen.
