“Get Well Soon” Boy Scouts

Boy Scouts, aka Taylor Vick, recently released her full-length Free Company.  It may be an album about “good old classic heartbreak,” as Vick puts it, but it relishes the process of healing just as much as it carefully weighs the grief.  Watch Taylor perform album-track “Get Well Soon” on a couch floating through Los Angeles via balloons. The video was directed by Ramez Silyan (Lil Peep). This September she will embark on a nationwide tour with Jay Som, starting September 11, in Phoenix, AZ.

“”Get Well Soon” reckons with the difficult epiphany that comes when you’ve worked overtime to help someone you love, only to realize they won’t meet you in the middle and help themselves. It’s a hard thing to say. You’re hoping somebody will eventually feel better, but there’s also this weird new distance between you. You can’t do anything else, but you still really hope that they’re OK,” Vick says.

Raised in California’s Central Valley on country music and The Carpenters, Vick picked up her first guitar in fourth grade. She started writing her own songs not long after, inspired by acoustic guitar-wielding radio icons like the Dixie Chicks and Michelle Branch. For Vick, writing and recording songs is a little like journaling, a way to make sense of the present and shuttle it off into the past. But her intimate compositions soon attracted a strong following of listeners. She may have been writing for herself, but she struck a far-reaching chord. Vick started playing shows around California, opening for bands like Soccer Mommy, Palehound, and Vagabon.
