“Stepping onto stage in his flared leather pants with his long hair and hat, he looks every bit the rock star that he is. Redfern showcases what a talented musician he is as he performs with incredible passion and love for his craft.” –  Rock ‘N’ Load

Guitarist and singer-songwriter, Troy Redfern, dubbed as Britain’s “King of Slide Guitar,” has been confirmed as DARE’s special guest on their 12-date October 2022 UK Tour.

The news follows Troy’s support slot on When Rivers Meet’s April and May UK tour and precedes his highly anticipated new studio album slated for release in Autumn 2022. 

Hailed by Rock and Blues Muse as part of their “Best of British: 15 UK Blues Artists to Check Out Today,” they had this to say about Troy – “His performances are passionate and intense, and while his style certainly references its delta blues roots, his delivery pulls it into the 21st century through a swamp of distortion and contemporary rock n’ roll aesthetics.”

Over the past 12 months, Troy has toured the UK several times supporting the likes of Robert Jon & The Wreck, The Quireboys, and When Rivers Meet

In August 2021 Troy released his critically acclaimed album The Fire Cosmic featuring the singles Waiting For Your Love, Ghosts, Sanctify and Stone. The album is available from www.troyredfern.com/shop.

The album was recorded at the legendary Rockfield Studios in North Wales, the same studio where Queen recorded all their early albums Sheer Heart Attack (1974) and A Night At The Opera (1975) – the latter featuring the legendary single Bohemian Rhapsody.
