FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –
The singer and songwriter of rock music known as “Bad Boy” Troy Tipton has released his latest LP record, titled “Standing in the Shadows.” The album is comprised of eight original tracks for an approximate listening time of 30 minutes. It has been released on the SMT Records music label. A modern taste of the stadium rock sound with a dose of country-western, “Standing in the Shadows” is an epic example of the American rock 'n' roll spirit, filled with octane and heat, heart and soul.
Tipton's style of songwriting is widely varied on “Standing in the Shadows,” and showcases a broad scope of tones and tempos. The opening track, “Triple X Whiskey” even boasts a surprisingly jazzy melody riff in the country/rockabilly mode. His singing is reminiscent of Jon Bon Jovi's, and his guitar work is marvelous and unique to him, full of flair and character. His instrumentalists are likewise top-notch, the band respectively featuring Eric Brittingham of Cinderella (bass), Kevin “Bushman” McKenney of Days of the New (bass), Michael Hodges of David Bowie (drums), and Garfield Redden of Tommy Tutone (drums).
Intuitively, the studio crew for “Standing in the Shadows” is of a similarly high caliber. The record has been produced by Erwin Musper, whose credits include names such as Def Leppard, Scorpions, Van Halen, and a slough of others. Engineering was performed by Gregg Pressler, who has worked with Steven Adler, Warrant, Every Mothers Nightmare, etc., et al.
Having been inspired to make music by seeing the Beatles take the stage on the Ed Sullivan Show, “Bad Boy” Troy Tipton began a lifelong music career at age six. He cites as his main musical influence, father Sonny Tipton, mentioning others as an afterthought. These secondary inspirations include Jimmie Page, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Farner, Paul Rogers, and Jeff Beck.
Tipton has shared the stage or opened for scores of titanic rock bands. These legendary names include (but are not limited to) Black Sabbath, Cheap Trick, Whitesnake, Air Supply, Sammy Hagar, Nitty Gritty Dirt band, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Deep Purple, Savoy Brown, Pablo Cruise, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Kool and the Gang, Steppenwolf, Black Oak Arkansas, David Chastain, and Toronto.
