Philip Sayce - UK Tour Reviews

'Troy .. carved each one out in a raw, earthy aggressive style, the sounds arcing and sparking from the frets  underpinning his rasped vocals. The packed crowd certainly seemed to enjoy what they had heard ...' https://rockposer.com/

'Troy Redfern, a one-man army armed with a  guitar and an array of slide-based tracks, set the stage on fire at Oran Mor, Glasgow.' https://bluesmatters.com

'I particularly loved ‘Sanctify’ and was foot-tapping along with everyone else and enjoying being in the moment. But then all too quickly the final notes of Troy’s acoustic set end and the applause fills the room which is a testament to his ability to captivate and connect with a crowd who have enjoyed every second.' https://jacemediamusic.com

Getaway Reviews

“British slide guitar-slinger Troy Redfern mixes the spirit of T. Rex’s Get It On with dirty, ZZ Top-esque blues rock – all of it nicely roughened, like something cooked up in a shack in rural Texas, solo rattlesnake slithering past.” – Classic Rock’s Louder Sound “Tracks of the Week”

“The solid rhythm section keeps the fluid rock anthem punchy as Troy sings “Got the burnin’ heart. I don’t waste no time” in a slight American twang. I’m reminded at times of Bon Jovi in terms of the vocals and overall tone of the single.” – Just Listen To This

“Established fans of Troy Redfern will welcome him and his new single back with open arms with his rock ‘n’ roll swagger, songwriting chops and melodic guitar whilst newer listeners will be intrigued and might want to investigate further.” – Just Listen To This

“Troy Redfern is probably my favourite guitarist/sing around today.” – Music News, 4/5

“His style of playing, all action and huge dynamics, and his slide guitar get you up and dancing from the first notes to the last.” – Music News, 4/5

“He has the whole package with the long hair, tattoos and leathers – just a blast, a piece of summer on a very cold day.” – Music News, 4/5

“Troy Redfern is a man on a mission, and seemingly working round the clock.” – Ramzine

“Redfern has a penchant for T. Rex… here he adds, if not early Status Quo, then some Foghat, to the mix with a hard rocking boogie singalong built for rock radio play.” Ramzine

“Troy returns with a brilliantly gritty slab of melodic hard rock that mixes influences from Richie Sambora, Kris Barras, and early Aerosmith, harking back to the days when rock ruled the radio and MTV regularly aired videos of leather-clad gunslingers cruising Highway 51 in an open-top Cadillac.” – Sonic Abuse

“Getaway is a hell of a ride and, if it doesn’t get the adrenaline flowing, you may want to check your pulse.” – Sonic Abuse

'Troy is a blistering guitar player with a cutting tone that demands your attention, when he drops yet another absolute banger like 'Getaway' you just have to stand up and applaud." – Rock N Load

“The first few notes have a sniff of The Cult’s 1987 classic Lil Devil about them until a combination of the powerful driving rhythm section backed up by a colossal riff quickly drives this tune onwards.” – Metal Planet Music

“Troy at his rockiest yet, the pace leaving you breathless, as the sheer energy of the tune blows you away.” – Metal Planet Music

“Troy ‘don’t waste no time’, his vocals a touch of Alice Cooper about them at times – albeit Alice on an 1800 rpm spin cycle turned up to 90 degrees centigrade – as he belts out the lyrics in his rapid-fire vocal style still finding time to deliver one of his breathtaking slide guitar solos.” – Metal Planet Music

“The sounds of British slide guitar legend Troy Redfern will excite you if you love guttural guitar shrieks, pounding bass notes, hammering rhythms, and Zeppelin-style riffs!” – Raw Ramp

Getaway is a thundering explosion of boogie rock ‘n’ roll thrill-making, with seductive bass notes working fast alongside iridescent guitar shapes.” – Raw Ramp

“The entire song is as crazy as a weasel caught in a gunpowder flask, and the ultra-compressed Bolanesque vocals work perfectly with the slide-guitar fusillades and carronades of audacious rhythm. Dynamite!” – Raw Ramp

“Slide guitar master Troy Redfern blasts off into earth shaking rock and roll with his new single “Getaway.”  – Rock and Blues Muse

“With a classic rock vibe, Redfern owns this blues-infused rocker with gritty vocals. A rockstar in the making, he burns up the fretboard with fiery slide guitar chops.” – Rock and Blues Muse

“I’ve got nothing to lose,” he sings, and his performance is all about throwing caution to the wind and going for it. He’s edgy, he’s aggressive, and takes no prisoners as he owns the stage. Troy Redfern hurls us all into the weekend!” – Rock and Blues Muse

Classic Rock’s Louder Sound – “Troy Redfern – “Getaway” – Tracks of the Week (Mon Nov 6  NEW
https://www.loudersound.com/

On this advance taste of his next album, due in 2024, British slide guitar-slinger Troy Redfern mixes the spirit of T. Rex’s Get It On with dirty, ZZ Top-esque blues rock – all of it nicely roughened, like something cooked up in a shack in rural Texas, solo rattlesnake slithering past. “The new songs embrace more of the rockier elements of my writing and playing,” Redfern says. “I’ve also given myself the creative freedom to explore and feel out other styles or aspects of my writing that have not been heard on any of my other albums."

Just Listen To This – Troy Redfern – “Getaway” Single (Sat Oct 28) NEW https://justlistentothis.co.uk/reviews/troy-redfern-getaway-single/

British slide guitarist Troy Redfern has been gradually building up his fanbase with extensive touring especially on festivals and support slots alongside a fairly consistent output of new music.

The guitar slinger has returned with his brand-new single entitled ‘Getaway’ which is the second single release to be taken from his forthcoming 2024 album ‘Invocation’.

Getaway is produced by Dave Marks and mixed by Jo Webb. The new single features Troy Redfern (guitar, vocals), Paul Stewart (drums), and Dave Marks (bass).

The solid rhythm section keeps the fluid rock anthem punchy as Troy sings “Got the burnin’ heart. I don’t waste no time” in a slight American twang. I’m reminded at times of Bon Jovi in terms of the vocals and overall tone of the single.

The rockier sound of ‘Getaway’ seems completely intentional especially with the line “I’m never runnin’ out of juice. Leave those blues up on the shelf”.

I do respect Troy Redfern for musically mixing things up a bit as it would not be interesting for himself or the listeners if he just decided to make the same album again.

However, the signature guitar solo is present and driven as it complements the lyrically themes of freedom and accepting when it is the right time to leave a bad situation (The song is not a story about a bank heist with a title of ‘Getaway’ although with Redfern on a resonator guitar that could be an interesting idea for a future song).

In conclusion, established fans of Troy Redfern will welcome him and his new single back with open arms with his rock ‘n’ roll swagger, songwriting chops and melodic guitar whilst newer listeners will be intrigued and might want to investigate further.

https://www.music-news.com

Troy Redfern is probably my favourite guitarist/sing around today. His style of playing, all action and huge dynamics, and his slide guitar get you up and dancing from the first notes to the last. He has the whole package with the long hair, tattoos and leathers – just a blast, a piece of summer on a very cold day.

An absolute barnstormer of a track and looks great for the new album too.

This presages his Kickstarter campaign for his new album ‘Invocation’ to be released next year.

Troy tours the UK with Philip Sayce in the UK in November (Bristol and London concerts are sold out).

RAMzine – Troy Redfern’s Getaway (Thurs Oct 26)
https://ramzine.co.uk/news/troy-redfern-6/

A man on a mission, and seemingly working round the clock, British slide guitarist and singer songwriter, Troy Redfern is gearing up for a new studio album release in 2023, and it’s going by the handle Invocation. While up in the headlights right now, is his new single ‘Getaway’.

While there’s a few tracks in recent years that have intimated Refdern’s has a penchant for T. Rex here he adds – if not early Quo then some Foghat – to the mix with a hard rocking boogie singalong built for rock radio play with its tale of knowing when it’s time to move on from a situation, of one form or another, has turned sour.

Sonic Abuse – Troy Redfern Unveils “Getaway” Video & Single (Thurs Oct 26)
https://sonicabuse.com/

Troy Redfern is an artist that SonicAbuse has had the pleasure of catching on various occasions. As a support act, he is devastating, casually threatening to blow any and every headliner off the stage with a range of songs that mix the authenticity of blues and the vitality of hard rock into a compelling package, topped off with Troy’s enviable skill as a slide guitarist.

Here, Troy returns with a brilliantly gritty slab of melodic hard rock that mixes influences from Richie Sambora, Kris Barras, and early Aerosmith, harking back to the days when rock ruled the radio and MTV regularly aired videos of leather-clad gunslingers cruising Highway 51 in an open-top Cadillac. It’s a hell of a ride and, if it doesn’t get the adrenaline flowing, you may want to check your pulse.

Metal Planet Music – Single Review: Troy Redfern – “Getaway” (Thurs Oct 26)
https://metalplanetmusic.com/

Troy Redfern doesn’t do things slowly. Onstage he is an incendiary device setting the stage on fire from the very first minute of his electrifying set to the very last second.

And so it continues with this the second single taken from his forthcoming album Invocation which is due for release next year – an extensive Kickstarter campaign launches imminently (October 30th) to help fund this album.

Produced by Dave Marks and mixed by Jo Webb this is an explosive tune that deals with a problem most of us have to face at some point in our lives, we need to change our life for the better, cut ties with the past and move on. We need to GETAWAY!

The first few notes have a sniff of The Cult’s 1987 classic Lil Devil about them until a combination of the powerful driving rhythm section backed up by a colossal riff quickly drives this tune onwards, Troy at his rockiest yet, the pace leaving you breathless, as the sheer energy of the tune blows you away.  Dave Marks on bass and Paul Stewart on drums pouring fuel on the smouldering fire which quickly develops into a raging inferno of slide guitar filled rock and roll.

Troy ‘don’t waste no time’, his vocals a touch of Alice Cooper about them at times in the ears of this reviewer – albeit Alice on an 1800 rpm spin cycle turned up to 90 degrees centigrade – as he belts out the lyrics in his rapid fire vocal style still finding time to deliver one of his breathtaking slide guitar solos midpoint through the three and a half energy packed minutes of this track.

No excuses are needed. Take back control and transform your life. Join Troy as he ‘feels like I could fly … I got my neck out the noose’. Leaving ‘those blues up on the shelf… never running out of juice’ Troy ‘pushes the hammer down’, ‘slips away too soon’ and makes his GETAWAY!

Be sure to make your return swiftly Troy as myself and many other fans cannot wait to hear the full Invocation album when it drops in 2024.

Getaway is released on Wednesday 25th October and is available on all streaming platforms HERE.
