Taylor Vick (fka Boy Scouts) Unveils New Song ‘Place That I Believe From

    Taylor Vicks, the Oakland-based musician Taylor Vick formerly known as Boy Scouts, has released her first single under her own name. Listen to ‘Place That I Believe From’ below.

    “I wrote ‘Place That I Believe From’ about my attempt to locate the unlocatable — the ineffable and elusive ‘place’ inside of me where my beliefs are born from and exist within,” Vick explained in a statement. “It represents another stride in my lifelong pursuit of meaning and my obsession with life’s mysteries. Examining an emotion carefully and questioning it, seeking to understand where it came from, what it is, and why it’s here, in an attempt to better know myself.”

    “This song, as well as all of my existing music, can now be found under my name, Taylor Vick,” she continued. “I’m retiring the name Boy Scouts for many reasons, in part because of the cease and desist I received, but mostly because it was time to pause and pursue some of my heart’s other desires. I have since began sitting at the bedside of folks on hospice as a volunteer, completed a Death Doula training, and started working full time as an activity’s assistant/end-of-life companion at a nursing home.”

    Boy Scouts’ last album was 2021’s Wayfinder. In 2022, Art Moore – Vick’s project with Sam Durkes and Trevor Brooks – released its self-titled debut album. Check out our Artist Spotlight interview with Art Moore.
