Workin’ All Night Workin’ All Day
After the culmination of many months of work the fantastic first Album by TPF is finally here.
Appropriately titled “Workin All Night Workin All Day” this first album has been a very long time coming and taken a lot of hard work to complete but it has been mastered to showcase the unique style and appeal that The Petal Falls music genuinely has for many people.
The impact, depth and variety of TPF’s music will now finally get a chance to shine and gain the following their music richly deserves.
The album contains some stunning songs including the album title track.
You can purchase the album at all online stores.

This is my new favourite album of 2020, by UK band, The Petal Falls “Workin’ All Night Workin’ All Day” and if the impressive production is anything to go by, this band most certainly has been – what a debut album!
Keith Leahy, singer & songwriter, demonstrates breadth and depth of range to his vocals, with powerful lyrics and big band production making this my album find of the year.
From the opening track, “A Man in Chains”, you’re drawn into this band’s world and you can hear various influences in each track, but the Petal Falls sound is both unique and warmly familiar at the same time.
I jotted down various influences that I could hear from 80’s Roxy Music, Big Country, The Killers, Bruce Springsteen and The Gaslight Anthem …. they are so varied and every track was punching above its weight.
Personal favourites the title track “Workin’ All Night, Workin’ All Day”, “Have a Little Faith” and “Colours” but it was hard to choose as the whole album is superb.
How refreshing in Lockdown to see a band making such high quality music – I can’t pigeonhole the sound but I love it. This is simply a fantastic debut….apparently 2 years in the making, and it was worth the wait. I really hope the next album lives up to the expectations set by this one! ****

‘Workin’ All Night, Workin’ All Day’ (album)
The Petal Falls
The Petal Falls have spent two years putting together this album: ‘Workin’ All Night, Workin’ All Day.’
The opening track ‘A Man in Chains,’ presents lively guitar links, a great vocal line and driving drum riffs through each verse; with each leading to a memorable and catchy chorus ably supported by rich backing vocal harmonies.
Other tracks – ‘All Across the World’ and the title track – carry on in a similar vein, with lead singer and song writer Keith Leahy’s accomplished vocals ably supported by a good guitar and synth section; driven forward by some excellent bass and drums.
‘Love in Motion’ offers the listen a more poignant break from other driving Rock tracks with a softer, more melancholy, verse melody, a catchy chorus and memorable guitar and synth link passages. The mood of this track is carried on in ‘Rain’ – a song with more than a passing throwback to an era of the big ballads of classic rock.
A favourite track was ‘I was amazed’ if for no other reason than its retro ‘80’s’ feel takes the listener back to days that should be too long ago to remember.
Whilst much of this album is really a homage to Classic Rock of another era, the songs are vibrant and fresh, the lyrics well crafted and poignant and, if the listener is looking for some good tunes well sung in a framework of well crafted music, then ‘Workin’ All Night, Workin’ All Day’ could well be worth a listen.
The album is released through Rock Avenue Records and distributed by The Orchard through all good online stores.
