Derek Bishop “Taffy”

Out and proud, gay rocker, Derek Bishop, is back with a brand new über-catchy, technicolor single and video entitled, “Taffy.”

The sound is all early-80’s synth-pop, but the video was inspired by bold, colorful, vintage 1960’s album covers. Bishop, who moonlights as an art director on Broadway, put his design background to use filming and directing the video himself using his iPhone and GoPro camera. “I wanted the video to look like a catalog of retro albums and posters flowing together, with each scene serving as its own little graphic moment. I didn’t have an assistant, so I was running back and forth behind and in front of the camera. I filmed a lot of very blurry scenes not being able to see what was going on. It was a little hectic, to say the least.”

“Taffy’s” lyrics speak to the tress of being “pulled in all directions” by life — hoping to gain strength to to stand up and say “enough!” Taffy is the third single from Derek’salbum “Bicycling in Quicksand” and is available on itunes and Amazon.
