More information about Philip Sayce + Special Guest Troy Redfern tickets

A hotshot guitarist who plays a revved-up mixture of electric blues, hard rock, and tough psychedelia, Philip Sayce was born in Aberystwyth, Wales. When he was two years old, his family pulled up stakes and moved to Canada. Sayce grew up in Toronto, where his parents raised him on a diet of classic rock and blues, with a special fondness for Jimi Hendrix, Albert Collins, Dire Straits, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Healey, Eric Clapton, and Ry Cooder. Sayce developed a love for music early on and began learning to play guitar on a Sears acoustic given to him by his folks at the age of 15. At 16, he regularly appeared at Grossman's Tavern, a Toronto venue that featured open blues jams. It didn't take long for Sayce to develop a loyal following on the Toronto club scene.

When Canadian blues guitar icon Jeff Healey heard Sayce's work, he invited him to join his band. Sayce signed on with Healey's group, and he worked with Healey for four years, appearing on the album Get Me Some and live releases. Sayce moved to California, and he landed a gig with Uncle Kracker, playing in his road band and on the 2002 album No Stranger to Shame. A casual meeting between Sayce and GRAMMY award-winning producer John Shanks led to his next job. Shanks was scouting a new guitarist for Melissa Etheridge, and after hearing Sayce, he recommended him for the job. Between 2004 and 2009, Sayce was part of Etheridge's band and appeared on three of her studio albums, as well as two live releases, and the Oscar winning song, "I Need To Wake Up'. In 2009, Sayce released the album Peace Machine. Innerevolution followed in 2010. Ruby Electric (2011) and Steamroller (2012) were produced by GRAMMY award-winning producer Dave Cobb.

Sayce toured diligently with his road band, sharing stages with the likes of ZZ Top and Deep Purple. Sayce performed at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival in New York City, and in 2015, Sayce struck a deal with Warner Music. That year, he put out his first major-label solo effort, Influence, also produced by Dave Cobb. Sayce worked with Warner Music to release a live album in 2016, Scorched Earth, and a studio album, Spirit Rising, in 2020, with over 14 million streams on Spotify. Sayce's November 2023 UK tour met with rave reviews, including a sold-out concert in London. His highly anticipated new studio album, The Wolves Are Coming, was released on Friday, 23rd February 2024, by Atomic Gemini/Forty Below Records.
