On reflection, it seems almost inevitable that 20 year-old Taylor Henderson would make his mark on the Australian music industry. After years of song writing and playing in a duo with his dad, Henderson found his way into the spotlight as a finalist on Australia's Got Talent in 2010, before becoming a firm fan-favourite and finalist on The X-Factor in 2013. They say you can't keep a good man down, and after showcasing his talent and youthful exuberance on national TV, Sony Music signed the young musician late last year, and were quickly rewarded with a double-platinum #1 single ("Borrow My Heart"), and a #1 platinum album ("Taylor Henderson" - a collection of songs performed on The X-Factor). It was an auspicious start to what will certainly be regarded in the years ahead, as a notable musical career.
It's now just over three months since his appearances on The X-Factor, and Taylor Henderson has spent the last few months in the studio working on brand new material for his upcoming album, and on the eve of the release of his first official artist-single reflects on the recent changes in his new career.
"Before The X-Factor I would just sit down in my room and write songs and no one ever heard them; if I did a gig, I'd be lucky if four people rocked up to the gig! The whole X-Factor experience has changed all that for me - now people have had a chance to listen to me, and Sony Music have been able to see that I can put a song together and they've put a lot of faith in me and my career going forward."
