Cynthia Tauro celebrates the comfort and familiarity of loving relationships on her latest single You Know Me — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“This song is about those people who truly know you,” the Schomberg, Ont., jazz-pop artist says. “It’s about those people where there is no need to be anyone but yourself around them — they like you exactly as you are, flaws and all.”
The sentiment felt similar while in the studio recording, she shares. “This song came easily in the studio … I was fortunate to work with two outstanding drummers — Larnell Lewis and Marito Marques — and, as soon as they heard the first couple of chords and my melody, they knew what the groove needed to be. It was so much fun to record and spend time in post-production with Marito exploring and creating for this one song.”
First known as a composer, musician, multi-instrumentalist and performing artist with a signature, soulful spin within the jazz-pop and world fusion realm, Tauro released her first album Moments (2019) to critical acclaim; its debut single Dancing On My Own hit #1 on the Canadian iTunes Jazz Chart and highlighted her longstanding talents as seen on stage alongside artists like Little Scream, Harea Band and as host of Jazz Jam. You Know Me is the first preview of Tauro’s forthcoming EP, which will find her exploring new musical surrounding for her intimate, soulful lyrics and engaging energy.
