Troy Redfern signs endorsement deal with Ernie Ball

Guitarist and singer-songwriter, Troy Redfern, dubbed as Britain’s “King of Slide Guitar,” who recently released his critically acclaimed album The Fire Cosmic, and is known for his 1930’s Triolian and National vintage resonator guitars, has signed an endorsement deal with the world’s leading guitar strings manufacturer, Ernie Ball.

“When I first started playing the guitar at age thirteen the very first set of strings I bought were Ernie Ball along with my first electric guitar,” says Troy.

“All of my guitar heroes were using them, the ‘who’s who of the world’s leading guitarists, and there’s a reason why. Ernie Ball strings are the best, most consistent, comfortable strings out there. They just feel like home to me, especially after using them for over thirty years. I’m totally honoured to now be endorsed by a company that I’ve loved for my whole guitar-playing career.”

Written on a vintage National guitar, and accompanied with a wide-open ¾ drum groove and whiskey drenched vocal, Troy describes his latest single Stone as “an Appalachian style roots rocker that builds into a stratospheric anthem, and features a slide guitar solo that stretches out across vast sonic horizons.” 

Stone epitomises what Troy Redfern does best – honest heavy-weight blues and John Lee Hooker riffs on steroids.

Following his tour supporting Robert Jon & The Wreck on their UK tour last month, Troy will tour the UK supporting The Quireboys in October and November 2021, January and June 2022, Wille & The Bandits in March and April 2022, and When Rivers Meet in April and May 2022.

Troy’s latest album The Fire Cosmic follows five unprecedented albums that he released in 2020. The album was recorded at the Rockfield Studios in North Wales, the same studio where Queen recorded all their early albums including Sheer Heart Attack (1974) and A Night At The Opera (1975) – the latter featuring the legendary single Bohemian Rhapsody.
