TaniA Kyllikki has released her official music video for her new single WHY, taken from the up and coming album W.H.Y pt1 due for release July 31st 2021. Independent singer-songwriter TaniA Kyllikki has released a heartfelt new single also named WHY. This very emotional song is based on true events from her own life. And has already received a lot of attention gaining over 130K on Spotify alone in a short time frame. Being a victim of sexual abuse followed by years of emotional and physical abuse, TaniA has displayed bravery by allowing herself to be transparent with her fans by sharing her very traumatic experiences through her lyrics.
The “Lie With Me” singer has always been able to bring great storytelling to her fans with her lyrics that are very raw, vulnerable and beautiful. The music video of WHY gained over 30K in just a day of its release. It starts by showing a woman looking broken and defeatist. As the video progresses further along, TaniA is seen cradling her pillow with tears falling down her face as she looks vulnerably into the camera. Following after this scene, is a curly haired little girl playing the role of TaniA as a child who loved to collect seashells at the beach. It shows a time when TaniA was happy in her life before all the abuse began.
The emotional journey described by fans as being like a movie of TaniAs life, then finishes off with a close up of TaniA looking into the camera with tears filling up in her eyes. The music for WHY has been beautifully produced. The heartfelt music brings all the necessary emotion for each chapter of the song from start, build up, to end. TaniA starts off singing in her lower register which is filled with soulful heavy rich belts. As the song progresses towards the end, TaniA starts singing in her higher range that has a more angelic classical sound the higher she goes. This then finishes with a beautifully controlled high note.
TaniA’s fans desribed how she sang WHY as being a clever way to tell a story of a broken woman who refused to stay down. By singing in her lower register then transitioning into her higher register, this represents great strength from a young woman who has hit rock bottom, to then being able to get back up and heal from the traumatic trauma she has faced. This makes ‘WHY’ feel relatable for TaniA’s audience who may have suffered the same experiences. What TaniA has been able to do with ‘WHY’ is use her creative talent to take back the power that had robbed her of her self-esteem for years. By turning her pain into something positive just by breaking her own silence, will help others heal in their own suffering. Every type of abuse is a serious issue, whether it is sexual abuse, domestic abuse, physical abuse, or mental abuse. Being able to be open about abuse experiences will help and do something to heal wounds. Abuse is not love and TaniAs song WHY provides this very powerful message.

Sugar Loaf Walker is the solo project of artist, Vivek Ayer, which was born in 2009. His work, a set of winding, intriguing and imaginative instrumentals, has come a long way from its creative beginnings. Recording a set of demos in 2009 in Bethnal Green, London, Vivek took influence from the world around him. London’s sprawling urban landscape formed a potent backdrop, the changeable British weather set the tone, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy as well as various conspiracy theories all swirled in rich alchemy to form a set of raw instrumental tracks. “The Sugar Loaf Walk alleyway next to my flat gave the sound its name, and the first song I wrote was to become the first track on this album, The Late Summer.” says Ayer
Fast forward to 2020 and the chaos of the pandemic gave way to the inertia of lockdown. Vivek dug out those old demos and Sugar Loaf Walker was re-born. “The melodies of the songs inspired me to bring back Sugar Loaf Walker and finish the album, properly this time.” continues Ayer
He worked with a remote team bringing his original demos to life. Inspired by his mother-in-law Penny’s charming car license plate B9 PNY, he named the demo Benign Penny. The album title now has a new and deeper meaning as the artist sadly lost his wonderful mother-in-law in 2010. His daughter was born in 2015, and took on the name Penny, keeping her grandmother’s spirit with her. The album cover, is a photograph of his daughter Penny, caught reaching out to the Fender Stratocaster that you can hear throughout this record.
The album is dedicated to Penelope Ruth Corbett and Penelope Lakshmi Ayer.
