Starting Over - Indie Pop Chillout by Seb Lefebvre
Taji was born and raised in a small town in Kentucky to two highly artistic parents. His parents told him enchanting stories of renaissance artists, He traveled the world with them as a young child, and was filled with a permanent sense of wonderment with the universe. He is an explorer, and although he may not be digging up dinosaurs or flying to Mars at the moment, through songwriting he is able to excavate himself. Through painful honesty he found immense personal healing. ‘Tunnel Sun’ digs deep into the duality of light and dark, without judgement or pretension, driven by unusual techniques.
