Reliably informed

A powerful meditation on the death of a childhood friend, Taller is an extraordinary debut single from Ami McGuinness which bravely and profoundly captures the grief that comes with losing a friend at such a tragically young age. Originally written for piano alone, the arrangement is fleshed out further with strings and choral vocals that add further dimension to the emotion and gravity in Ami’s phenomenal vocals and the powerful imagery in her lyrics.

Trying to condense something as complex as loss into a song is a challenge that takes a great deal of courage and grace, but Taller succeeds exponentially in capturing the depth of emotions and anxieties that come with confronting such a tragedy. Incredible stuff.
