Tarver recently performed the single during her Paste session here, as well. On Subject to Change, she emerges as the rare kind of artist capable of capturing the most painful truths through her willingness to bare all with her lyrics, all wrapped up in impossibly gorgeous pop songs. With a record of media acclaim from the likes of NPR, Billboard, SPIN, GRAMMY.com, Earmilk, The Guardian and American Songwriter and millions of followers, on her new album, Tarver explores the complexities that come with navigating life through your 20s and 30s.

With lyrics that capture a bracing specificity that strikes every raw nerveshe documents a turbulent period in her recent past, shedding light on all the grief, confusion and a lost sense of self. Infinitely brightened by her radiant voice, the result is the musical equivalent of a brutally honest conversation with a close friend - one that leaves you undeniably rattled but with a renewed clarity and deeper understanding of your own chaotic heart.

Co-written and produced with longtime collaborators including Davis Naish, David Arkwright and Justin Gammella (Ashe, Lennon Stella), Tarver explains her thoughts around the album: “I think a lot of us go through that phase in life where you ask yourself, ‘Is this it?’ It can be so isolating and so hard to talk about, especially with social media and all the pressure to always have your shit together. Life is unpredictable. For all the stories of triumph and resilience, there are just as many stories of failure and getting lost. The addict relapses. The happy couple gets divorced. The one you’ve put on a pedestal lets you down. Finding the love of your life doesn’t solve your problems. You know the expression, the only way out is through? These songs are me making my way through. Giving myself permission to not have the answers. Letting myself feel it all. The pain, the joy, the confusion, the bittersweet in-between...I learned that uncertainty can be an open door. And that change is a constant invitation I want to learn to accept.”

Thanks to unfettered self-expression, Subject to Change ultimately instills listeners with a newfound willingness to embrace their own messiness and mutability. “As I was writing and exploring all the emotions that went into this album, I finally got to the point of admitting that there’s so much I don’t have figured out — which is really scary, but also incredibly freeing,” she says. “The reality is that none of us knows what we’re doing; we’re all just trying our best. It’s been a big deal to let myself be open to being in progress like that, and I hope these songs can be a friend to anyone facing uncertainty or change. That’s what they’ve been for me.”

About Katelyn Tarver

With her radiant voice and soul-baring songwriting, Katelyn Tarver delivers a finespun brand of indie-pop that’s both intensely vulnerable and powerfully cathartic. After getting her start performing in prestigious talent competitions as a child growing up in Glennville, Georgia (a tiny rural town where her family owned a candy factory), she moved to Los Angeles at age 19 to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Also an accomplished actor, Tarver promptly made her TV debut with a recurring role on Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush, then began independently releasing her music while penning songs for other artists.

In 2014 she experienced a major breakthrough when “Crazy Stupid Love” (a song she’d co-written for British pop star Cheryl) shot to #1 on the UK Singles Chart. Tarver soon made her debut as an artist with the 2017 single “Weekend Millionaires,” a much-buzzed-about track that later appeared on her Tired Eyes EP. Created with famed producer Ludwig Göransson (HAIM, Childish Gambino, Alicia Keys), Tired Eyes also featured “You Don’t Know,” a heart-melting ballad whose viral live video has amassed over 55 million views to date. With her acclaimed EP Kool Aid arriving in 2018, Tarver next acted alongside Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in the fourth season of HBO’s Ballersand in 2019 was selected by Ryan Tedder, Shane McAnally, and Ester Dean as the winner of her episode of NBC’s Songland. On her forthcoming album Subject to Change, Tarver embarks on a bold new era in her musical evolution, setting her exacting self-reflection to a gorgeously nuanced sound.
