Invocation is the follow-up to Redfern’s 2022 studio album The Wings of Salvation which received rave reviews. Said Blues Rock Review of the Salvation album, “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.”

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).

On Getaway and the forthcoming album, I wanted to write and record songs that were bigger and ballsier than what has come before,” says Redfern. “The new songs embrace more of the rockier elements of my writing and playing.  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 Getaway and the upcoming album, I think I have finally perfected my own contemporary signature sound.

Getaway is a slide guitar, rock ‘n’ roll tour de force. Lyrically, it deals with themes of freedom and knowing when it’s time to leave a bad situation. It’s undeniably Troy Redfern full circle blues rock and roll!

“Getaway is about cutting yourself some slack,” adds Redfern. “It’s about transforming your life, even if there are difficult decisions to be made.  As they say, from the mud grows the lotus.”

“This is fantastic, killer slide guitar. I can't stop playing his new music.” 

– Planet Rock

“Guitar player extraordinaire.” 

– Huey Morgan, The Blues Show. BBC Radio 2

“Honest, heavyweight blues… a talent to watch closely.” 

– Classic Rock
