Monte Vista artist releases debut single

A young musician from Monte Vista has just released her debut single, “Untouchable”.

The track saw her being interviewed on several local radio stations recently and will hopefully open more doors for the aspiring artist.

Tayla Hunter, a Grade 10 learner at Edgemead High School, says music, dancing and figure skating are just a few of the hobbies she loves.

Asked what inspired her to pursue a music career she indicated that her family played a huge role. Her mother, Candace Rogers and godfather, the late Ian Ward (founder of One FM 94.0) always pushed her a little.

But it was her father who really made an impact on her decision to take singing more seriously and who encouraged her to pursue her dreams.

The 15-year-old singer/songwriter started singing lessons about one and a half years ago.

Although her father has some musical abilities, it is still a mystery where her beautiful voice came from, as no one in the family can really sing, her mother says.

However, her great-grandfather used to sing and play the banjo during the war to lift people’s spirits.

Tayla is currently on a bursary with Discovery Health (where her mother is employed) and hopes to maintain her A-aggregate to retain the bursary throughout high school and university.

“She wants to study something in the medical field and at the moment she is contemplating midwifery,” Candace says.

She adds: “Tayla loves the feeling of making people happy with her music, she strives to be a role-model to her peers and tell stories through her lyrics. She wants her music to be relatable and even if it lifts the spirits of one person, she will be successful.”

Tayla has a diverse choice of music.

“When she was younger she turned towards the Ariana Grandes of the world, but nowadays her love for music is so diverse that it would be impossible to mention just one. Her go-to song for this week would have to be “Don’t want you” by Ella Mai,” her mother says.

“Untouchable” is available on all major platforms including Spotify, Youtube, Google Play Music, SoundCloud to name a few.
