Ta Ku // Songs To Make Up To (synopsis)

Synopsis by Ta-Ku

Songs To Make Up To was written during one of the longest periods of writers block I have ever experienced. During this time I took a big step away from music and decided to pick up my first camera. It’s also important to note that I was in a period of self discovery and healing due to personal life/love experiences. I decided to travel the world, and like most, document everything around me in photos. These photos became the backbone of my creative drive to write the new EP – capturing stories and moments that inspired song titles and melodies in my head. After taking photos for such a long period of time, the itch to get back into the studio grew and grew.

Songs To Make Up To, similar to Songs to Break Up To is more than just a musical project. Each song holds significance to the process it took to make up for lost time and to heal one’s heart. I hope you feel it.

Thanks to my friends at VSCO – you can hear a track by track interview below giving you insight on the EP and how/why it was made. With each track, I have also included photos that I took during the song writing process. It means a lot to me to be able to share my thoughts, music and photos with you all. Thank you to all who have supported this EP in their own way. Truly humbled and appreciative of it all.

Love y’all.
