Toronto synth-pop/jazz artist Tara Kannangara‘s is back with her new single ‘I Made This For You’, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“‘I Made This For You’ is essentially about letting go,” says Kannangara. “Artists spend countless hours refining the work, trying to make it perfect, hoping that it will be everything we want it to be, but there’s always a point where you have to let go and let it live in the real world. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that when we make music, it’s not just for ourselves but it’s for people to share, enjoy, criticize, interpret, whatever. And maybe the way people interpret the music will have nothing to do with the way it was conceived, but it doesn’t matter, it’s not for me to decide.”
Growing up in Chilliwack, BC, Kannangara studied classical piano and voice from an early age. Kannangara then serendipitously picked up the trumpet in high school at first focusing on classical before moving into Jazz and other genres. Kannangara studied at the University of Victoria for classical trumpet and vocals, but later moved to Toronto to pursue music at the University of Toronto where she came into her own as a performer and songwriter. Tara’s critically acclaimed debut album “Some Version of the Truth” was nominated for a 2016 Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year, and her sophomore album It’s Not Mine Anymore is set for release on May 31st, 2019.
“I Made This For You” is the 2nd single from Kannangara’s new album, It’s Not Mine Anymore, which is out on May 31st.
