TROY: So the past shall passTranscend Reflect Open Yield
â€œ A potential visionary rather than just another self-reflective tunesmith.â€
Although failing to enlighten his parents with an hour-long aâ€™capella recording at age tenâ€¦Troy Michael Petty has found, musically embedded in his soul, a reason to sing.
Now a stalwart on the Chicago local music scene, Troy has manifested a musical palette
symbolic of his astrological sign: Gemini, showcasing his overall sound through both an â€˜electricâ€™ and â€˜acousticâ€™ foundation.
â€œ I come in whichever form the music/song requiresâ€ TMP
Drummer Jay Will and bassist/pianist Joseph Lâ€™Amour blend coherently into what has become troyâ€™s standard three piece act. Generally labeled Alternative/Indie/Rock/Pop, troyâ€™s minimalist approach refines each song drawing you further amongst different sub-genres. Painting pictures of isolation, love and the struggles of the human spirit, troy evinces a strong emotional quality and sense of honesty that is not so often found in mainstream arenas.
â€œArmed with a voice supplied by angels and some liquid guitar lines, Troy weaves a deft, introspective spell. â€œ
Since 2000, troy has remained active on the road, in their hometown releasing a pair of full-length albums and gaining credits in a few indie films including a music video. â€œEvery accomplishment leads you to another challenge, if itâ€™s what you love to do, itâ€™s what you get used toâ€¦and ultimately you find your own definition of success.â€ TMP
