Tom Petty created a body of work that reached people of many generations and varying backgrounds. A bona fide rock star, he was so relatable that people who never met him felt like he was family. To his fans, Tom Petty’s music is the soundtrack to their lives.

On Oct. 2, 2017, news that he had died sent a seismic shock wave through the musical universe. He was, without doubt, as good as rock 'n' rollers get. Attending a Tom Petty concert was a singular event. There you would see the man who had written so many memorable songs fronting one of the best rock bands ever assembled with thousands of voices singing as one on every chorus. His passing left a heartbreaking hole where the relatable rock star used to be.

Greg Klyma is a Gen X troubadour. He grew up with MTV and started writing songs the same year that Tom Petty released Full Moon Fever. For more than 2 decades, Klyma has traveled the country playing in cafes & bars, living rooms & festivals, recording 12 studio albums and building a modest following of loyal fans along the way. Through romantic breakups and over a million miles logged, Tom Petty's music has simultaneously been the soundtrack of his life and a major influence on Greg Klyma's music.

In his one-man show, HE HAD A SOUTHERN ACCENT, Greg Klyma presents Tom Petty's music at its core. Switching from acoustic guitar to electric bass to tenor banjo and on, Klyma plays the songs that have had the biggest impact on his own life and leads the sing alongs, one grieving fan to another.
