LISTEN: Julian Taylor, “Seeds”

Jun 24, 2022

LISTEN: Julian Taylor,

Artist: Julian Taylor
Hometown: Toronto, Ontario
Song: “Seeds”
Release Date: June 24, 2022

Editor’s Note: “Seeds” was inspired by a text that Taylor received from his cousin the morning after it was announced that 215 uncovered remains of buried Indigenous children had been discovered at a former residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia. The message simply read: “They tried to bury us, but they didn’t know we were seeds.”

In Their Words: “Seeing and reading messages from members of my family felt crushing because genocide has and continues to be attempted where me and my loved ones live and it’s happening all over the world. When I look at my family I see a group of undeniably strong people with stories to share and that also gives me hope and that’s when I started to write ‘Seeds.’ I hope that this song touches people’s hearts in some way and makes them think. Think about their lives in a different way. One that brings them closer to the natural world and the universe. I hope it makes them feel the need to help others and see just how important and special the teachings of the ancient ones truly are.” — Julian Taylor
