Canadian singer-songwriter, Taia Bohne has unveiled her new single, “Ford Fusion”, which follows her previous single, “Villain.”
Inspired by a summer fling that left her reeling and seeing constant reminders of her former lover, “Ford Fusion” looks to become an anthem for those that can never quite let go of the past. With her fresh and uplifting direction in the driver’s seat of this bright and bouncing pop-rock stunner, she is continuing to surprise us with her warm and captivating sound.
Speaking about ‘Ford Fusion’, she said,
“Everyone sees their ex’s car everywhere after a breakup. Which means if you’re seeing their car everywhere, they are definitely seeing yours. There’s closure in realizing that goes both ways.”
“I got the idea for Ford Fusion in September 2021 after a summer fling had just ended. I was seeing this guy’s car everywhere and it was driving me crazy, until one day I realized he probably thinks about me whenever he sees my car too. Then I got to thinking just how many things really would make him think about me. I wrote the song on an acoustic guitar on my bedroom floor in about two days. It gained some popularity among my TikTok followers so I decided to take it into the studio in the spring. This song is sort of a gift to those who have supported my music on TikTok for the past year.”
My name is Taia and I’ve moved around a lot but I went to junior high and high school in a small town in Alberta. I started writing music when I was about 12 years old and have never stopped since. I did show choir and played rugby throughout high school, but now I’m a student at a university in Southern Utah. Other than music, I really enjoy making fun YouTube videos and watching movies.
“Ford Fusion” was written from personal experience, much like most of my other songs. I had just experienced the breaking off of a wonderful summer fling and was really bothered by the fact that his car seemed to be everywhere- a white Toyota Tacoma was suddenly the most common vehicle in the world, even though I’d never noticed them before. After a few weeks of noticing every single one of them and being forced to remember this guy, I realized that seeing your ex’s car everywhere is a universal experience which meant he was most likely seeing my car everywhere too. It gave me a lot of closure that I hadn’t had before to write this and realize how many things would remind him of me and that these reminders weren’t one-sided.
Almost all of my songs are written about my real-life experiences and the emotions I’m feeling at the time. I’m fascinated by love and I always have been and always will be. Writing about it building up or falling apart in any way, shape, or form is my favorite thing to do. Even if I’m writing about characters in a book or a movie, I still find the central idea to be around love. Love is confusing and I don’t think anybody truly understands it, so I definitely will continue to lean on songwriting as a way to view my emotions through a closer lens as I navigate my love life.
I don’t have any shows currently lined up, but I did recently do one in Montana which can be found under my first and last name on YouTube. It’s titled “Taia Bohne- LIve from Montana May 12, 2022” for anyone who would like to watch.
My goal for 2022 is to improve my music and grow my career in it as much as possible. I also want to continue to connect with those who enjoy my music on social media and give them more to listen to since they have given me so much support so early in my career.
