Troy Petty, “Kept”
“Keep everything you love, not anything you find“. The lyrical anthem of Troy Petty’s new rocker “Kept” draws you in with subtle finger snaps and a low growling synth. Then slowly, Petty’s familiar acoustic guitar and looping style join big, rhythmic drums that keep you inside this powerful and poetic story about hoarding. The single drops on March 15th under German label Dachshund Records.
“Kept” is the 3rd single from the forthcoming album “Director’s Cut”. An album that travels the spectrum of Petty’s past and present influences from indie/alternative through acoustic and experimental pop. The Chicago native joined three-time Grammy nominated drummer and producer, Ken Coomer, to record the full length album. Coomer, ex- Wilco, Uncle Tupelo fame, also played the drums. “DIrector’s Cut” is due for release in May 2019 followed by intensive European dates through the fall. https://dachshund-records.lnk.to/kept
