(January 17, 2020 – Toronto, ON) – Taggart & Torrens – featuring Jeremy Taggart, legendary rock drummer and multiple-JUNO Award winner formerly of Our Lady Peace, and Jonathan Torrens, 30-year veteran of Canadian TV (Street Cents, Jonovision, Trailer Park Boys, and Mr. D) – debut the first single from their much anticipated comedy album due this spring on Dine Alone Records. Blending Jeremy’s musical background with Jonathan’s comedic chops, says Taggart, “It’s been a blast performing a bunch of different styles in the studio, “The Score” is one of the hip-hop jams we’ve written. This album is a fun trip around the musical block, with plenty of laughs along the way.” “The Score” is now available to stream and purchase HERE.
To accompany the track, the dynamic duo have released a ballin’ video directed by Nicole Frosst featuring some beloved and legendary figures from the Canadian music scene…as puppets.
“Ever since we heard that Gordon Lightfoot and Drake live across the street from each other we’ve loved the idea of blending those two musical styles,” says Torrens about the video. “It obviously had to be a diss track, so our Gord going after someone as equally loved and respected as Bruce Cockburn made us laugh. Three kings of Canadianity in one song.”
