Singer-Songwriter Col Gerrard Shares New Single ‘Nowhere’

London based singer-songwriter Col Gerrard returns with the new single ‘Nowhere’. Growing up in London, having signed his first record contract when he was 19 years of age with Warner-Chappell, Col has made a name for himself writing for television and film as well as other artists. After leaving music for a while, running his own business before then entering the world of film as a writer and director, Gerrard has gone full circle and now come back to his first love, music.

Having previously been signed to Warner-Chappell while it was under the management of Jimmy Henney, Col has gained a vast amount of experience within the music industry which he uses to inform his current writing and musical style. Now working with Emmy Award winning composer and producer Matthew McCauley, Col’s new single ‘Nowhere’ is a great example of his talent as both a writer and a performer. 

A soundscape of strummed acoustics, crunchy guitar riffs, swelling organ, tight drums and grounding bass create a warming alt-rock soundscape under Col’s smokey, gravelly and emotive lead vocal. As the track progresses through ear-worm vocal lines and subtle, infectious guitar riffs, the track’s pop-rock appeal shines. 

Speaking about the track, Col adds: “This track was created and written in Los Angeles when I saw a woman walking by herself on the beach. The track is about something being so close but you just can’t reach it”

An experienced singer-songwriter with an impeccable ear for affecting yet still commercially viable soundscapes, Col Gerrards new single ‘Nowhere’ is due for release January 20th 2023.
