Shaped by his multifaceted entertainment background, TROY’s soulful voice, lyricism and charismatic stage presence bring his catchy Pop/Americana songs to life and led him to Nashville and producer, Marti Frederiksen (an industry staple who produced hits for Aerosmith, Carrie Underwood and Daughtry, to name a few).
Born in New Jersey, TROY got his start in New York City musical theatre at age 12. His performance as the Artful Dodger in the musical “Oliver” alongside Broadway stars Michelle DeJean and Neal Bernari garnered the attention of reviewers at The New York Times. In his teen years, TROY’s talent and work ethic won him leading roles in the world premiere musical “A Christmas Story” and “13 (The Musical).” TROY moved to Studio City, CA and gained popularity as Troy Doherty, an actor starring on “This is Us” (as John Smiley alongside Mandy Moore), “The Last Ship” (as Clayton Swain, starring Eric Dane), and “Victorious” (as The Hambone King alongside Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande). His career in entertainment bolstered his love for storytelling through music.
