The best kept secret in music

Powerful performances, talented songwriting. Troy keeps you guessing what instrument he will pick up next. - Liquid Audio Productions

"One Unique Act"

Troy Bennett finally figured out his act. He is unique. Nobody does what he does. He has confidence, mad skills and great songs. Troy worked hard over the years to develop an entertaining and inspiring show. That's what it's all about. - Bamboo Spoon Design

"HoboFest 2004"

One of the high points of the festival for me was Troy Bennett filling pretty much ALL of Friday afternoon and sounding bigger by himself than most four piece bands do. - Jeremy Smith

Feeling a bit camera shy


Troy Bennett takes the stage as a looping madman. Combining folk, rock, funk and fusion into a complex yet accessible musical stew. Troy is a true multi-instrumentalist, mastering percussion and melodic instruments with equal skill. In a typical performance Troy will harness the thrill of technology and with real time phrase sampling lead the audience through a musical labyrinth. Everything Troy creates in his performances is spontaneous and original, grown live right before your eyes. It usually starts with a single guitar, a simple chord structure, a song. Then a small clip of it is sampled allowing Troy to jump to one of many different instruments: sax, wind synth, mandolin, and bass. Each one can be layered into the sample loop. The foundation of sound forms and melodies, harmonies, beats and solos are created within, around, and on top of the loop. This allows for a very full sound coming from just one man on stage. Troy includes original compositions, interpretations of well-known and eclectic covers, and improvisation into his high energy set.
