NEW SINGLE – “GASOLINE” RELEASED AUGUST 19, 2022
FROM THE UPCOMING STUDIO ALBUM “THE WINGS OF SALVATION”
RELEASED SEPTEMBER 23, 2022
Following hot on the heels of his single Come On, Troy Redfern is set to release the epic slide guitar blues rock anthem Gasoline, the second single from his upcoming highly anticipated album The Wings of Salvation.
Featuring ten infectious slide guitar savvy tracks, The Wings of Salvation album is released Friday September 23rd. The album is available to pre-order from www.troyredfern.com/shop.
“With Gasoline I wanted to write a positive, uplifting, good-time rock ’n’ roll tune,” says Troy.
“Right now, we’re bombarded with a lot of negative news in the media. Lyrically, I wanted to put something out there that was the opposite to that. The groove of this tune is in 7/8, which isn’t a typical rock ’n’ roll rhythm, but I really love the flow and feel of riffing in this time signature, especially playing slide using the National resonator in a low tuning. The combination sounds huge.”
Produced by Dave Marks (Hans Zimmer) at the UK’s Dulcitone Studios, The Wings of Salvation is an exciting new chapter in Redfern’s trajectory, not only as a slide guitarist, but as a creative force in the recording studio.
“My goal was to make a record that was a true representation of where I am right now as an artist,” says Redfern. “I wanted to create something in the spirit of the old school classic rock albums that I grew up listening to.”
