Foot Tapping Records was founded by Clive Duffin and Colin Bell in 2002, deep in a Hampshire picturesque village. Primarily specialising in Rock’n’roll, Rockabilly and Blues, Foot Tapping’s first release was Porky’s Hot Rockin’ ‘One More Star’, at The Mill Studios, Norfolk. Until 2005 the majority of Foot Tapping’s recording and production took place at Sweet Georgie Brown’s in London.
In August 2005, Clive, with business partner and rock’n’roll singer Darrel Higham founded Embassy Studios. The first ever recording at the studio was by The Rough Cuts. This was shortly followed by Pete Hutton and The Beyonders, which was released on Rhythm Bomb.
Well known artists to record at Embassy Studios include; Slim Jim Phantom (from the Straycats) and Rocky Burnette (son of the great 50’s singer songwriter Johnny Burnette).
Since 2005, all our releases have been recorded at Embassy Studios and produced by our in-house engineer Graham Dominy.
The biggest hit released on Ambassador Records and recorded at Embassay Studios, is Imelda May’s now certified double-platinum album, ‘Love Tattoo.’ Since it’s release, May, who is now signed to Universal Records has enjoyed success with ‘Love Tattoo’, with over 197 weeks in the Irish charts!
To date, Foot Tapping Records has released a whopping 134 releases! It’s sister labels has enjoyed smaller success with 4 releases on Ambassador, and most recently, it’s first release on Union Records.
