Taking up the guitar as a teen, Troy quickly absorbed his musical inﬂuences of the early blues pioneers and the energy of the 70's and 80's rock icons. The turning point came when he discovered open tunings and slide guitar.
"I immediately felt like I'd come home the moment I put a bottleneck on my ﬁnger and started playing slide, it instantly felt completely natural to me. This style of playing helped me ﬁnd my true voice on the instrument".
His talents quickly realised, he received endorsements from Airline Guitars and even has his own signature glass blown slide made by world renowned slide manufacturer Diamond Bottlenecks whose roster includes the who's who of slide guitar luminaries including the likes of Mark Knopﬂer.
Carving out a name for himself by relentlessly touring and blazing a trail across the main stage festival circuits in the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, and Russia, and sharing the stage with the likes of Robert Plant and Dr Feelgood, Troy has worked tirelessly to build a strong following of diehard fans who gravitate towards his passionately honest, ﬁery performances and visceral guitar playing.
The last few years has seen Troy shift into creative overdrive releasing ﬁve full length albums in 2020 alone, all receiving worldwide airplay and overwhelmingly positive reviews from the international press, Island and Thunder Moon both receiving multiple 5-star reviews.
On August 9, 2021, Troy released his album "The Fire Cosmic" to rave reviews. His single "Sanctify" was Voted Tracks of the Week by Classic Rock. The single "Ghosts" was playlisted on Planet Rock. Over the next six months Troy will tour with Robert Jon & The Wreck, The Quireboys, Wille & The Bandits, and When Rivers Meet.
