Heavy Petty was formed in 2006 when drummer Jeff Griggs told singer/guitarist Kevin Lane, “For Halloween this year, we’re gonna be Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and you’re gonna be Tom Petty.” Originally meant to be just a one-off show, Heavy Petty is now entering it’s twelfth year of playing club shows, theater shows, and college game-day parties. With the recent untimely death of Tom Petty, what better time than now is there to celebrate the man, the band, and their music?
Georgia born singer-songwriter and roots-rock artist Cody Marlowe found his inspiration at an early age in the soulful sounds of B.B. King, Merle Haggard, and the Allman Brothers. Marlowe’s songs explore the polarities of good and evil in an intriguing blend of lyrics featuring lost loves and hopeful musings.
His most recent album, “Silver and Gold,” is his third release since his first EP, “Where You Are,” released in 2010 and his first full length, “Eighty Nine,” released later that same year. For the new album, Marlowe teamed up with brothers, producer/drummer Kevin Sellors and bass player Ryan Sellors, to form his new back-up band the Dead Flowers. During the recording process, Marlowe recruited Joey Huffman on organ (Hank Jr., Matchbox 20) and Nathan Bedingfield on electric guitar (Aaron Shust).
“Silver and Gold” is a return to the roots of rock n roll, country, blues, and honest songwriting; reminiscent of Tom Petty and the Black Crowes but with a modern edge inspired by childhood in the 90’s. Expect this album to earn respect from the musicians of the past while stretching the musical paradigm of a younger generation.
