t.e.d is set to make her mark in 2023 with her new emotive single “Let Me Be.” The track showcases t.e.d’s stunning voice alongside glistening instrumentation. Paired with a vibrant melting pot of heartfelt piano lines, understated guitar lines and divine backing vocals, her vocals cut through the mix, infectious but emotive, working hand in glove with her well-penned and raw lyricism.
Speaking about the track, she says: “‘Let Me Be’ follows the process of realising someone isn’t good for you, and the eventual demise in a relationship begging to end. It represents a moment when I realised someone had created a toxic space for me, and the process of having to fight my way out before we could both let go. ‘Let Me Be’ is inspired by the human ability to change, and the battle we wage within ourselves to change things for the better.”
South African born Tanya Sholto-Douglas, known musically as t.e.d, has been a singer her whole life, but only fully began her journey into music at the age of 18. Now aged 24, she’s studying Popular Music at the University of Gloucestershire in the UK, with her music gathering tens of thousands of streams.
Originally, she made her debut with EP “halfpace”, a three-track E.P that showcased her unique and irresistible sound. She quickly gained online traction off the back of this, gaining a reputation for her powerful musical partnership that consists of indie-pop instrumentals and silky smooth vocals.
Sonically, it’s clear that t.e.d isn’t held back or defined by any genre barriers. Influences such as Daniel Caesar, beabadoobe and Rainbow Kitten surprise can all be found within her music, but these are executed through her own unique musical lenses. t.e.d is sure to make 2023 her year, and she’s an artist to keep on your radar.
