Nolan Taylor Deals With The Pain Of Moving On In New Single “Life/Love”

Few things are certain in life but death, taxes, and Nolan Taylor putting out bangers.

The Columbus, OH artist behind “68” continues to grow both his fanbase and his catalog at a rapid rate with the latest addition being his brand new single “Life/Love.”

In typical fashion, Taylor’s soulful vocals and heartfelt, authentic lyrics take a front seat in the song, backed by stripped back instrumentation.

In “Life/Love,” Taylor mulls over the inexplicability of life and love in light of a rocky relationship, and ultimately decides despite his feelings, it’s time to move on. Give it a listen here:

“The afternoon sun comes in with such a heavy light
I’ve been cloudy for too long but I think I’ve cleared my mind
Another song but this one’s done I’m thinking that it’s time
To let go of everything and move on with my life”

“Life/Love” is the fifth song Taylor has released thus far in 2023, and with each release, the momentum behind his nascent career only strengthens. Built upon honest lyrics and raw talent, Taylor’s growing catalog is impressive. And it’s only the beginning. Here are the other songs he’s released this year, in case you’ve missed them.

“Double Life (Live)”

“Wicked Ways”



Taylor is one of those artists whose career is on such a trajectory that you really need to get out there and see them live as soon as possible, because before too long, those who have will be reminiscing on the days they saw him up close and personal in the smaller venues.
