Troy started singing when he was five years old and has studied with many teachers during his lifetime. With extensive training in musical theatre and pop music, and some classical training, Troy has become an enthusiastic and emotional singer.
Troy is also an avid and versatile composer and arranger. Since writing his first song at ten years old, Troy’s songwriting skills have developed and he released his first original single in May 2019. His songs have won or placed many times in ORMTA’s Music Writing Competition and won the national CFMTA Student Composer Competition in 2016. In 2018, he made his New York City cabaret debut in Broadway Dreams Sings Drew Fornarola at Green Room 42. At age seventeen, Troy composed his first choral piece by setting music to his late grandfather’s poem Eloquence. The song has been performed in both provincial and national festivals by the Etobicoke School of the Arts Chamber Choir as well as professionally by the Mississauga Festival Choir. For the first six months of 2021, Troy has released original compositions and arrangements of pop songs as part of his Sunday Sessions series.
In addition to writing music, Troy is also developing skills as a playwright, finishing his first one-act play, The Elephant in late 2019. He was also an opinion columnist for The Bull and Bear in 2019, where his article “The Sick Note Disease” was selected for publication in the Winter 2019 print edition.
