ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Taiyo's music gets under your skin like a warm heartbeat. Pure as moonlight, gritty as N.Y.C., brave as a young man standing tall in the face of his own shadows. Paladin, seraph, young sage come-of-age, we welcome your songs into our dangerous, beautiful world.
-Ishle Yi Park

Taiyo tells a story that is both his and his people's, and he tells it well. There's a fearless humility that bleeds through this record. Emotion, but with substance - in a world that sees and hears too much of one without the other.
-Geologic of Blue Scholars

With Love is Growth, the singer/songwriter/MC establishes himself as a multidimensional talent with a unique creative voice that fuses the rhythms of the city that raised him with the soul of the Asian immigrant culture that birthed him.
-OkayPlayer.com

There's something undeniably soul-rootsy about Taiyo Na. Na's debut album, Love is Growth, is storytelling through music at its finest, with all its fragile and spirited nuances.
-Boston Progress Radio

Love is Growth is soulful, passionate, real. Especially affecting are "Moonlight City," "Lovely to Me" (Hwang's violin is a stand out) and "Take My Breath Away." The layering of styles is unique—a true synthesis of love and dedication. Far more than a poet-singer, this is politics down to the basics.
-Professor John Kuo Wei Tchen

Moving swiftly and easily between so-called “genres,” lapping the hardcore MC, soulman/loverman and poet for the people two times… All hail the young prince.
-Denizen Kane, excerpt from liner notes for Love Is Growth

Smart album - Love it!
This first album of his is a super smart album! I've heard him sing live and I'm just really happy to see his album debut. This album is one of the most collaborative albums I've heard. And to experience so many different flavors by different artists, you are deeply mistaken to think that Taiyo's voice would be lost amidst the talents. Instead, his musical core and versatility is amplified through various ways of expressing hip hop and soul. Taiyo has a way of making me feel his music with simple beats and complex lyrics as each song exudes emotions so well I can feel where he's is coming from and guess what he's thinking. Taiyo is a great artist, a collaborator at heart, and understands hip hop and soul to its core.
