The highly anticipated concerts will showcase Redfern’s three-piece band comprising Troy Redfern (guitar, lead vocals), Keira Kenworthy (bass, backing vocals), and Nicky Waters (drums, percussion).
The headline tour follows the release of Troy Redfern’s latest recently singles “The Strange” and “Getaway” which are both taken from Redfern’s highly anticipated new album Invocation released Friday May 17th. The album is available to pre-order from www.troyredfern.com/shop.
Redfern recently launched a successful Kickstarter campaign for the forthcoming album. In 2023, the enigmatic slide guitarist performed at numerous festivals including Steelhouse, Maid of Stone, Planet Rockstock, and Rawa Blues Festival in Poland where he performed a headline set to a crowd of 7,000.
In addition to being a popular attraction on the festival circuit, Redfern’s UK touring track record reflects a musician who is hardworking and relentless. Over the past two years he has toured the UK with Robert Jon & The Wreck, When Rivers Meet, The Sweet, The Quireboys, DARE,and Philip Sayce.
Following his November 2023 UK tour supporting guitar virtuoso Philip Sayce, Redfern’s forthcoming album Invocation follows hot on the heels of his critically acclaimed 2022 studio album The Wings ofSalvation which received rave reviews. Blues Rock Review said, “Redfern balances big-league chops with mad songwriting skills to bring us an action-packed set of blues rock that will blow out your windows.”
No stranger to publicity, promotion and accolades, Troy’s current single “The Strange” recently won Classic Rock’s Tracks of the Week. Said Classic Rock of the song, “Rising blues rocker and slide-guitar star Troy Redfern comes over like a much heavier, filthier Marc Bolan – or a pirate raising hell in a really good rock boozer – all sleazy swagger and Jack Sparrow wardrobe.”
For Redfern’s forthcoming hotly tipped album,Invocation, he wanted to write and record songs that sounded bigger and ballsier than his previous works. “The new songs embrace more of the rockier elements of my writing and playing,” says Redfern. “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.”
Continues Redfern, “As an artist, I feel it’s important to keep pushing and striving to refine your art, while staying true to your vision. It is important to know who you are as an artist, and on my recent singles, The Strange and Getaway, and the upcoming album, I think I have finally perfected my own signature sound.”
