Feeling a bit camera shy


The moment you meet Troy, you can’t help but sense a certain mystery in him. The kind of mystery that makes you ask who is he? What is he about? What’s his story? Once he takes the stage, you see it-the heart, the passion and his child-like faith. Troy is one artist who brings an excitement to his audience by conveying his passion for Christ and his love for people.
It is with a colorful mix of Pop and piano-driven music that grabs his listeners and pulls them into the gospel that he shares. His imaginative lyrics, smooth vocal arrangements and pop-driven style have won him favor within Nashville’s music industry, New York and beyond. On stage, Troy connects with his audience with songs that people can relate to. Like an open book, he shares his past and his present with his listeners. Troy shares about who he wants to be most like.
“ You know, I have always loved the character David, the shepherd boy. He was humble and meek and at the same time strong. He had so much faith that he conquered giants and he was never afraid to praise God. He had such passion when it came to worshiping God. He wrote poems, he composed music, but what’s even cooler is that he danced before God- That’s passion!”
In 2001, Troy became one of 12 winners in the BMI 4th annual John Lennon Songwriting Competition for his single "Brother to Me" (Superhuman). In addition to this honor, Troy was selected as one of the Top 20 CCM songwriters at the GMA (Gospel Music Association) 2002 Seminar in the Rockies. He has performed at numerous youth camps and church youth groups across the country and Brazil, gaining overwhelming response and growing a steady fan base along the way. Troy’s debut solo project, Superhuman, produced by award-winning songwriter and Christian recording artist Morgan Cryar, released from Premier Records in 2003. Troy also recently appeared on the 2004 Dove Awards sharing the stage with Nicole C. Mullen. This opportunity allowed him to open up for other headliners such as Jaci Velasquez.
Troy’s pop tunes target young adults, and remind listeners of Christ’s “superhuman” power, which radiates in the lives of believers—allowing them to realize that with Christ, anything is possible. Along with catchy singles such as “Superhuman”, “Rowdy”, “Sign of Love”, and “There for You”, Troy performs his version of the radio hit "You Gotta Be", made popular by recording artist Desiree.
Besides Troy's gift of songwriting , there is a very interesting story behind this artist. A story that gives testament to his faith and provides backing for the songs that he sings such as the song "There For You."
" ‘There For You’ is about a friend that I met in my junior year of college. He was very suicidal and dealing with some issues. One night me and a friend stopped him from cutting his wrists and for a couple weeks that is all I thought about. I could not sleep. It was quite a process for him to realize that he was loved. He's doing ok today, but I told him that I would always be there for him and I thank God that my friend and I were there that night." Troy continues with other life lessons he experienced.
"The same year that I wrote There For You, I also wrote the single ‘Brother To Me’. I met a friend,Craig, who guided me through trying times. I confided in them about the issues that I had been dealing with. I dealt with the same pressures that so many teens and college students encounter as they discover freedom through growing up. I often wondered how one who made so many wrong choices in life could be used by God. It was the hardest years of my life. I did much questioning and searching and I always wondered why Craig wanted to help me, but because Craig and exemplified the Love of Christ, healing took place. It was the persistence, dedication, commitment and love of friends that got me through it.
I consider Craig a true brother. When God has a plan, He carries it out and it happens when you least expect it through the people you least expect and I praise Him for that."
Troy also serves as an artist associate for World Vision, the world’s largest child sponsorship and disaster relief program. He lives in Nashville, TN, and continues to base his ministry on a powerful passage found in Romans 8: 35-39 which tells believers that nothing will ever separate them from God’s love that is revealed in Jesus Christ. Troy is presently touring with the Veggie Tales and working with producers Adrian Bradford (Sparrow Records) and Shoc (Gotee Records) for a new record due out in fall 2006
