Press Play on “Technically Single”: Interview With Musician Tayler Buono


Tayler Buono; Tayler with an E, and Buono like (Bo-no), is a singer/songwriter with big dreams and a soft smile. She’s been writing music ever since she learned her first 4 chords at age 15. And recently, her new song, “Technically Single” landed onto Spotify. Tayler’s passion has carried her all the way to Nashville, Tennessee; where she’s been focusing on writing and collaborating with others to create her unique sound. She’s constantly working to improve herself and is quickly making her way through the music world. Her music is a hybrid between Purity Ring and Kai, and her sound features an alternative voice mixed with clean hip-hop backtracks and an extremely danceable vibe. I personally love her sound, and this soon-to-be star should grace your playlist as soon as you’ve finished reading this interview!


Aria: What’s on the top of your playlist right now?
Tayler: “All Time Low” and “Guillotine” by Jon Bellion, “Closer” by The Chainsmokers (Halsey), “Capsize” by FRENSHIP, “Hymn for the Weekend” by Coldplay (Seeb Remix), and “Say It” by Flume.


Aria: What texting acronym do you use the most?
Tayler:  “Lol”

Aria: What is your go-to song for when you want to wallow in sadness?
Tayler: “Fix You” by Coldplay, or anything by John Mayer gives me all the feels!

Aria: What is your go-to song when you want to start the dance party?
Tayler: “This is What You Came For” by Calvin Harris (Rihanna).

Aria: If you could name your fans, what would you name them? (like, “monsters,” “animals” etc.)
Tayler: Haha I have no idea… “the best people in the world”  🙂

Aria: What are some of your biggest influences or idols? (musically and just in general.)
Tayler: Bono, Ryan Tedder, Chris Martin, Jessie J.

Aria: What’s the inspiration behind your song, “Technically Single,” and what’s the backstory/significance to your life?
Tayler: I wrote “Technically Single,” because it was basically my life. Haha. I was in a confusing relationship; that awkward gap between being more than friends but not officially in a defined relationship. It was one of the easiest songs I’ve ever written because I basically just read my text messages as the lyrics.


Aria: Since your music career started, how has your life changed ( challenges etc.)?
Tayler: I work on music everyday. I moved to Nashville about a year ago to find my team and focus on writing. I feel like I’ve found an amazing team here. I’ve started taking frequent trips to L.A. to write and collaborate with more people. Having a career in music is a process of continually growing and challenging yourself to keep creating new things.

Aria: When did music change from your hobby into your life passion?
Tayler: I started singing when I was 8 years old. Then when I was 15, I learned my first 4 chords on the guitar, and I wrote my 1st song. Ever since I started writing, I knew that music was what I wanted to do with my life. I became obsessed.


Aria: If you could magically go back in time and give yourself advice when you were first starting out,  what would you say?
Tayler: I would tell myself not to worry, that, “It’s all going to work out. Focus on the music, enjoy it, and be confident in what you’re passionate about. Everybody’s journey is different, so don’t ever compare yourself to others.”
