Hello there, welcome to Honk Magazine. can you tell our readers about what really inspired you to write music?

Taydee Marie – Honestly, my music is like my therapy. I think if I hadn’t started writing music, I would have exploded a long time ago! It all started with a broken heart and a diary and it grew from there.


When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?

Taydee Marie – I knew I wanted to do music for as long as I can remember.  As soon as I was old enough I moved to Cali and have been pursuing it ever since.


Tell us what is so unique about you and your music?

Taydee Marie – I love to write from not only my own perspective but from others as well. I am very empathetic and I am able to turn someone’s feelings and emotions into a song and I think that is what is unique about my music.


Can you tell us about your latest releases and what inspired you to create them?

Taydee Marie – I’m a storyteller and with my latest releases, I wanted to capitalize on that. I wrote about young love and broken hearts. I think the songs are very relatable to girls especially.


Can you give us a brief insight into your upcoming projects?

Taydee Marie – I’m originally from Arkansas and I recently decided to go back to my roots a bit. I’m going to have some country cross-over songs coming out very soon! I’ve been wanting to do this for a while so I’m glad it’s finally happening!


What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out?

Taydee Marie – I’d say let yourself make mistakes. Keep writing and correct as you go along. I used to get so caught up in trying to make everything perfect, now I just keep writing until all the pieces fit. A lot of times I’ll get two songs out of it.


What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) that you are passionate about?

Taydee Marie – My favorite thing to do outside of music is to hike and I also love audiobooks books. I’m a huge reader but I can’t stand to sit still, so audiobook is a great option for me. And when you pair that with a hike in nature it is the best thing EVER for me.


Any last piece of advice for those artists who just started making music?

Taydee Marie – I’d say don’t give up on yourself and work hard. It’s a journey and it won’t always be fun, but if you want to make it you have to keep going. I honestly have to remind myself of this a lot.
