Gordon Taggart – Footsteps
(Released July 9th 2021)
Following on from the success of his debut solo release, Indie Rock artist Gordon Taggart returns with his feel-good hit for the Summer. ‘Footsteps’ is the optimistic glass half full anthem that we all could use right now.
Recorded in various studios and home set ups, DIY artist Taggart once again took his time to self-produce this record, adding different instruments and elements to the track, before William Robertson’s mix (Mick Jagger/ Frank Turner) and Pete Maher’s mastering (Rolling Stones/U2) bring the track together, bridging the gap between the classic and the contemporary.
Off the back of well-received debut single, ‘Be The Ones, (it garnered airtime on hundreds of stations across the world and National Radio play here in the UK), the London-based South Manchester artist felt now, with Summer finally arriving, was the right time to release its follow-up.
“A pretty good blend of being a song written in a more classic sense – a short, under 3-minute track influenced by ‘60s/’70s bands but still with a modern bounce.”, Taggart succeeds in summing up exactly why he harbours such an inherent appeal. He deftly balances the timely with the timeless creating something that feels both familiar, yet truly his own.
True to his word, with a catalogue of new songs ready to be recorded and live shows about to return this is exactly what Gordon will be doing in the rest of 2021.
