Taylor Colson’s introduction to the world is “Hurt Me.” It’s a dark but soulful song that’s delivered perfectly by Colson, written exceptionally well by Colson and Dylan Jackson Scott, and produced exceptionally well by Scott and Charlie Park. The song features ambient production with some accenting piano and a heavy but slow beat that allows the song’s melody and Colson’s powerful voice to do all the heavy lifting.
Jackson Scott, a collaborator with Halsey in her early years has really found another exceptional talent in Colson to work with. Not only is her vocal strong – it’s got a lot of personality to it too. She deliver’s the melody in the verses on “Hurt Me” extremely well and then moves seamlessly toward something in a higher range that’s more powerful in the chorus. Colson’s voice is the clear star of the show here and it makes her music worth listening to.
Colson’s introduction with “Hurt Me” is a strong one. The song is filled with personality and it’s dark but soulful tone gives it the ability to resonate on a different level. Colson is an artist to keep an eye on, this is just the start of something special.
