New section

Blues.   Soul.   Rock & Roll.

"You can feel the spirit of Magic Sam and Peter Green
but Troy has his own way of expressing himself.
Troy is a beautiful singer and master guitar player
who in the short time of listening to him
playing a slow-blues song I was able to hear
the whole history of The Blues. ​
I feel that the music Troy expresses is the true Blues.
With Troy, the true Blues is in goods hands for the future.  
He is a dignified person and artist and I love him and his music.
He'll be around for a long time. "

 

-- Ronnie Earl
