Troy Redfern "Getaway" Single
British slide guitarist and singer songwriter, Troy Redfern is pleased to announce the release of his new single "Getaway". Accompanied by an official video, it’s the second single taken from Redfern's forthcoming 2024 studio album "Invocation", and dovetails his highly anticipated November 2023 UK tour supporting guitar prodigy Philip Sayce.
Taking up the guitar as a teen, Troy quickly absorbed his musical inﬂuences of the early blues pioneers and the energy of the 70s and 80s rock icons. The turning point came when he discovered open tunings and slide guitar.
“I immediately felt like I’d come home the moment I put a bottleneck on my ﬁnger and started playing slide, it instantly felt completely natural to me. This style of playing helped me ﬁnd my true voice on the instrument.”
His talents quickly realised, he received endorsements from Ernie Ball Strings, Magnatone Amplifiers, Airline Guitars and even has his own signature glass blown slide made by world renowned slide manufacturer Diamond Bottlenecks whose roster includes the who’s who of slide guitar luminaries including the likes of Mark Knopﬂer.
Carving out a name for himself by relentlessly touring and blazing a trail across the main stage festival circuits in the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, and Russia, and sharing the stage with the likes of Robert Plant and Dr Feelgood, Troy has worked tirelessly to build a strong following of diehard fans who gravitate towards his passionately honest, ﬁery performances and visceral slide guitar playing.
Troy has completed six full UK tours garnering an overwhelming response from music critics, reviewers, and fans alike. He has toured with Robert Jon & The Wreck, the Quireboys, The Sweet, When Rivers Meet, Dare and a successful co-headline UK tour with Canadian rockers The Commoners.
Leading up to his September 23rd, 2022, release of his new studio album The Wings of Salvation, Troy released three singles and accompanying music videos for Come On, Gasoline, and Sweet Carolina, all of which have attracted heavy radio airplay and have been featured on Joe Bonamassa’s popular Spotify playlists Cutting Edge Blues, Epic Guitar Solos, and Ultimate Blues Rock.
In November 2022, Redfern won Hard Rock Hell’s “Blues Artist of the Year” Award.
On Friday December 2nd, 2022, Troy performed at Planet Rockstock. Later in the same month, The Wings of Salvation was featured in Rock and Blues Muse’s Top 25 Albums of 2022.
Troy released a brand-new single entitled The Fever on January 11th, 2023. The single was added to Planet Rock’s playlist, making this Troy’s fourth single Planet Rock has playlisted, following hot on the heels of Ghosts, Come On, and Sweet Carolina.
On Wednesday October 25th, Troy released the single Getaway, the second single from his forthcoming studio album Invocation. On October 30th, Troy started a Kickstarter campaign for the Invocation album.
From November 19-25th, 2023 Troy will support Philip Sayce on his highly anticipated UK tour. On December 1st, 2023, Troy will play the main stage at Planet Rock’s Rockstock Festival in Wales, followed by Planet Rock’s Blues Power “Live” concert at Dingwalls in Camden Town, North London on December 7th.
