Troy Everett - violist, guitarist, pianist, composer, and multi-genre producer. What makes his music unique is that he combines his classical training in viola and piano with his passion for other genres including alternative rock, trip-hop, and more. His wide variety of sounds can fit any event including wedding ceremonies, concerts, parties, and more.
Price Range: $300-$1000
Gig Length: 60 - 120 minutes
What to Expect
While I mainly perform original music and some pop covers, I have the ability to play everything from the traditional Bach, to jazz, rock, and electronic music. I would be perfect for anything from weddings and other classy events, to parties requiring DJ's, or even those events that just require ambient music.
Troy Everett grew up in the farmlands of Maryland where he started his music career at just the age of 5 playing classical music in the DC area. After spending time as a multi-instrumentalist playing at various venues and composer festivals, including Oregon Bach Festival Composers Symposium, the Kennedy Center, and the 9:30 Club, he started to write and release his own original music in 2014. Troy continued to record and perform in DC until 2018, when he relocated to Los Angeles. He continues to write his own music and perform, while also producing for other artists in the US and abroad. His classical training combined with his experimental music creates a unique and distinct sound.
Additional Booking Notes
All I would need access to would be the sound system at the event and a couple of power outlets. Everything else I can bring myself. This includes whatever instruments and amplifiers would be needed. For more classy events requiring a more traditional feel, I have a repertoire of classical pieces, jazz pieces, and pop covers. Just let me know what kind of feel you are going for and I can provide the rest!
For original works, contact me and I can provide mp3's.
