Place in My Heart feat. RYAT is the debut single off of Taylor McFerrin's full length LP Early Riser, due out on Brainfeeder in 2011. The song represents a style that many haven't previously heard from the Brooklyn based producer. Leaning heavily on layered guitars and dense swirling effects, the music is dark and soulful, with a tone somewhere between beauty and pain. A fitting match for the subject matter of RYAT's lyrics, which are a letter to a loved one contemplating suicide. RYAT is a Philadelphia based Singer/Producer, who's album Avant Gold sparked Taylor's desire to collaborate on the track, which he felt was a perfect match for her distinct vocals. If Place in My Heart represents one thing listeners can expect from the Early Riser LP as a whole, it's that McFerrin is more than willing to expand his sound in all directions. The tune was recently selected as an "All Year Winner" on Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Radio show on BBC 1 and remains on heavy rotation. The music video, directed by Simon Benjamin, stars Taylor's brother Jevon McFerrin and actress Stephanie De Latour, and is a perfect visualization of the story and emotion of the single.

Biography :
Taylor McFerrin has sustained an major buzz in the Future Soul scene ever since his 2007 EP "Broken Vibes" gained heavy rotation by DJ's such as Benji B, Gilles Peterson and Garth Trinidad. His production credits include remixes for The Cinematic Orchestra, Amp Fiddler and Corrine Bailey Rae, as well as album tracks for Jose James and UK Rapper TY. He has also toured worldwide as a one man show, playing major festivals such as Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, The Big Chill, and Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival. In New York alone he has performed at such legendary venues as The Apollo, The Blue Note, Radio City Music Hall and The Lincoln Jazz Center, opening up for artists such as Erykah Badu, the Roots, Nas, Talib Kweli and J* Davey. His musical style is equally influenced by the legends of 60's / 70's soul and the kings of the Modern Beat Generation. By playing all the instruments on his productions, while also relying heavily on resampling and chopping up his live takes, he has found a sound that bridges those two worlds.
