About Taylor Castro
Taylor Castro grew up in Florida and during her early years, it was apparent that she had the performance gene in her. She was destined to work in the industry in some capacity.

‘Muse With A Dagger’
On February 26, Taylor released her latest single, ‘Muse With A Dagger.’ The song is the fourth release from her album, Girl Afraid, Part 1, which will be released in its entirety on October 20th, 2021. Girl Afraid is set up as a play, where Part 1 is the first act and each song is a new scene. ‘Muse With A Dagger’ is the fourth release from the album, which will be released in its entirety on October 20th, 2021.
‘Muse With A Dagger’ is a song that showcases Taylor’s impressive vocals. The lyricism and allusions she creates in her writing are something we haven’t seen in a very long time. She is very heavily involved in the accompanying music videos and her website is full of her thoughts on her music and where she sees it all going.
“‘Muse with a Dagger’ can be seen from many different angles, depending on the listener’s subjective point of view. For me, it’s a song about the divisions’ society forces us to have with those who aren’t like us, told allegorically through a relationship between two individuals. The pair forms an unexpected bond but are torn apart due to the polarized communities they come from. This is not Romeo and Juliet, though, because the characters have genuine loyalty to their people and are frustrated by the unwanted connection. When a natural conflict occurs between the two, they rage against the other’s community. It’s all in vain, however, because both of them will always be an entity separate from what they stand with. In a rage, one can destroy the world of the other but never quite bring themselves to destroy the other. This is because we are not defined by what we associate with. We are defined solely by the corners of our inner selves that no one can quite fit into or even grasp.”-Taylor Castro on ‘Muse with a Dagger’
