Eleven-year old Australian guitar prodigy Taj Farrant recorded his debut single last month at Lucky Boy studios, based in Byron Bay.

Just Can’t Sleep was produced by legendary guitarist and sound engineer Geoff Wright, and features local musicians Grant Gerarty (drums) and Thierry Fossemale (bass).

The single’s release is planned for September 21.

Byron local Scott Dorsey manages Taj and says, ‘In the last 12 months, Taj has appeared on Ellen and performed live with Carlos Santana, KISS, Rob Thomas, Orianthi and Human Nature’.

‘He has over a million followers online, with over 60 million video views in the last three months alone’.

    From the first few notes🎸I was hooked. You have an incredible old soul inside of you and you feel the music that you play. Ypu don’t need notes , or books to read. you hear it , you feel like you play, it you rock it. Absolutely comes natural to you and this is a gift that you can think God for. I am so proud to be called a legend and I share you with everyone I know and then some. I will follow you until god calls me home. Much love and blessings☮️♥️ZAE
