Tom Petty

Any mention of Tom Petty is almost always sure to bring a smile. This massively successful multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter from north Florida came onto the scene in the mid ‘70s. Presenting straight ahead classic rock, sometimes loud and raucous, other times poignant and understated, always brilliantly melodic, with his famous mild-mannered demeanor, Petty quickly struck a chord, first with the American public and the rest of the world soon after. Whether with the Heartbreakers, the Traveling Wilburys, or as a solo artist, Petty’s take on American rock only gets better with age and is sure to live on in the airwaves long into the future.
