Updated: May 15

Having released two independent EP’s and a string of successful singles, Australian singer-songwriter Taylor Sheridan is back with a soul-stirring new song WhenThe Demons Come.


The new track is a powerful and emotive tour de force highlighting Taylor’s undeniable musical talent and extraordinary gift for storytelling. Inspired by real-life events, When The Demons Come is a timely ode to self-healing, utilizing a real-life event that has inspired and transformed Taylor’s creativity.


Since 2015 Taylor has been steadily refining his craft, going from strength to strength with each release, and reinforcing his reputation as the singer-songwriter to watch while touring with some of Australia’s finest acts, includingVanessa Amorosi, Jon Stevens, Pete Murray, Thirsty Merc, Daryl Braithwaite and John Farnham, all the while developing a loyal fan base.


When The Demons Come is born of a personal experience that deeply affected Taylor and compelled him to seek solace through personal reflection and songwriting. Although the new track is a result of this introspection, the journey is a universal one; the need to draw inner strength during challenging times.


"Singing soulfully is something that feels incredibly natural to me and I love the storytelling aspect of it. Lyrics and melody are where my heart lies but if you find the right chords that genuinely excite you, that’s the real pay off".

Beginning with Taylor’s vocal, with its vulnerable yet assertive cadences the song moves smoothly from a quiet meditative wistfulness to a magnetic intensity, highlighting Taylor’s electrifying vocal command and the song’s persuasive melodic fervour.


The track is life-affirming and expressive, reinforcing a relatable lyric and a dynamic authenticity. As Taylor says of singing and writing, ‘Singing soulfully is something that feels incredibly natural to me and I love the storytelling aspect of it. Lyrics and melody are where my heart lies but if you find the right chords that genuinely excite you, that’s the real pay off’. And that process has certainly paid off with When The Demons Come.


Taylor’s new release is his breakout track: contemporary, emotionally charged and featuring a strong and evocative vocal performance, a pertinent, all-embracing lyric and soulful melodic brilliance.
