Taberer’s lead single, “Wild Ones,” is a testament to his unique songwriting prowess and the album’s central theme. Drawing inspiration from the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean that connects continents and stories, “Wild Ones” transports listeners to a world of escapist fantasy where desires are fulfilled and captures the essence of the album’s themes. The song’s anthemic hooks and catchy melodies make it a perfect introduction to Taberer’s musical universe. The track was an instant favorite, its captivating energy setting the tone for the entire project. “Atlantic” weaves a tapestry of tales, offering a blend of vulnerability and liberation that resonates with audiences worldwide. The songs were initially recorded and mixed at Cosher Studios before being re-mixed in the UK with Abbey Road producers Noah Booth and Alex Condliffe and then mastered by the masterful Christian Wright. 

Reflecting on his musical journey, Taberer shares, “The album ‘Atlantic’ is a collection of poems, stories, thoughts and messages I wrote over the last 10 years. There’s an immense vulnerability that comes with the realisation that I’m about to publicise all my journal entries. But sometimes it’s the fear that makes you feel most alive. This project has been a labor of love for me, a journey of amalgamating my life experiences with my wild imagination and using the entire musical process to convey that feeling.” His musical style is a fusion of pop and rock elements with a touch of 80s nostalgia, forming a unique sound that defies categorization. His influences span across genres and eras, resulting in a sound that is both contemporary and timeless. The authenticity of his music shines through, capturing the essence of his journey as a musician and storyteller.

While “Atlantic” marks Blair Taberer’s first public release, his musical journey began years ago. Born in Zimbabwe and now residing in South Africa, Taberer’s path to music was a gradual one. From a passionate listener to a skilled musician, his commitment to authenticity and self-discovery is evident in every note he creates. Looking to the future, Blair is excited to take his music to the stage and share his songs with live audiences. “I’m not seeking fame; I’m seeking connection,” he says. “The joy of performing live, making people feel something incredible through sound, that’s what drives me.”

The release of “Atlantic” on October 28th will mark a significant milestone in Blair Taberer’s musical journey. Between the release of ‘Wild Ones’ now and another favourite single of his, “The City” set for release on October 15th, the album promises an emotive experience that music enthusiasts won’t want to miss.
