With the advent of music platforms and streaming services, music discovery for the fan and reach for the artist is easier than ever. Even still, it doesn’t prevent many artists from flying under the radar, remaining relatively unknown. As a listener, when you find one of those unknown artists, the thought of “why isn’t this guy more popular?” comes to the forefront. Pop creative The Saylor is one such artist. I hadn’t heard of The Saylor or this track until I saw it on Spotify. His lyrics and instrumentation are one of a kind and the vocals combine to make a unique listening experience. He blends elements of Hip-hop, EDM, Pop, and R&B to make his own sound.
The Saylor has a way with words – and with catchy hooks, too. The directness of his lyrics resonate strongly behind polished production. Catchy and structured – which makes it all the more special – his creativity is on full display here on his latest single, “Young”.
Based in Columbus, Ohio, The Saylor (a.k.a. The Bopper Dropper) is taking music by storm with the release of a new single every two weeks. Credited as a producer and songwriter for his tracks, The Saylor’s has also been noted for his exciting performance for Victoria’s Secret models in NYC.
While all of this helps toward building a headlining name, at the same time he demonstrates that he definitely knows his way around catchy pop music and its mainstay appeal. And as release after release it translates to his growing popularity, he’s showing that hard work and dedication to the craft does in fact pay off.
While he has released previous projects, this is undoubtedly one of his most impactful and impressionable release yet. “Young” highlights the switching of smooth singing, backed by passionate harmonies and a rhythmic, almost tropical like backing beat. The Saylor, former member of the funk band V!bes, has given us a spectacular mix of Pop and EDM, along with a story backed by a chorus that could fill out an arena.
In this awe-inspiring track The Saylor takes all that makes you human and lifts it up to let you know that there’s something bigger out there to be savored and enjoyed. “Young” also highlights what makes this artist, not only a spectacular musician, but also an extraordinary human with a focused vision on life.
The Saylor’s vocal talent is shown off well because of not only how he sings, but the way he hits the notes with such ease at different points. There’s something extremely captivating about this song. The verse, which instantly pulls the listener in, gradually picks up from the airy piano and synths to build a energetic electronic effect and clapping in the background, all which lead up to the irresistible chorus.
No matter what genres you are a fan of, don’t set aside this record because of genre labeling. Take the time to listen to the song and you’ll be hooked. The Saylor’s lyricism, vocals, and production are all astounding and make listening to “Young” an unforgettable experience.
