TROY REDFERN Conjures the Ghost

TROY REDFERN is giving away his new song “Ghosts” as a free download.

The UK slide guitarist, songwriter and producer issues his next album “…the Fire Cosmic!”   on Friday August 6th via RED7 Records.

Ghosts” sets forth with a suggestive Appalachian-style roundel performed on his raddled & played-out 1929 National Triolian resonator, which sets the aesthetic ambience for this remarkable studio album.


Crenellated by the framework laid down by drummer Darby Todd (The Darkness, Martin Barre) and his shuffling percussive coupage, the song “Ghosts” (video shared below) builds  incrementally with skillfully-laminated acoustic tonalities that competently realize a spectacular chorus. 

Virtuoso bassist Dave Marks’ unostentatious yet spirited bass-line buttresses the verse to engender a euphonic wafture in the solo section while Troy prowls with his resonator to sidestep and parry like a swashbuckling pirate armed with a barnacled sword — to inevitably achieve a rushwater whoosh of spirit.

The new album follows five unprecedented albums that Troy released in 2020. The disc was recorded at the legendary Rockfield Studios in North Wales, the same studio where Queen recorded all their early albums including Sheer Heart Attack (1974) followed by A Night At The Opera (1975)

Troy is special guest on Robert Jon & The Wreck’s September 2021 UK tour (dates below) and will also tour the UK as special guest to Wille & The Bandits in March and April 2022
