Brand New To GigSalad!!!
You may recognize troy from season 12 of NBC's The Voice. Troy soared up to the top 12 before coming back home to his growing career as a singer-songwriter & performer. Troy has since been touring the US and releasing original music & sang the National Anthem at Madison Square Garden & Mohegan Sun Arena. Troy, tours frequently supporting his own music, but is also available for events of all types and sizes.
Troy is available as a soloist, trio (percussion & lead guitar) or full band.
What to Expect
Every event is different so it is my goal to make sure that my performance is appropriate for each circumstance.
For wedding cocktail hours I can provide a beautiful atmosphere of background music, and for other events I can provide a more artistic focused event that is more engaging.
One of my strengths as an artist is to adapt songs to fit my style which makes every night feel like a real artistic expression for me, and gives my clients a unique performance that they may not be able to get elsewhere.
I am available as a soloist, or as trio with percussion & lead guitar or as a full band. Each of the combinations have been perfect for events of all shapes and sizes.
From the smooth stylings of Sam Cooke to the lyrical beauty of Curtis Mayfield, soul music is rich in tradition, highlighted by an authenticity that few artists possess today. Troy Ramey, on the other hand, is an exception.
Part crooner, part troubadour and all storyteller, Troy is pure, unequivocal soul, evoking memories with each note he sings. With unbridled emotional power, Troy has an inherent ability to reveal his pain and draw you into his music. This inimitable talent is brightly evident on his critically acclaimed debut EP, When the Lights Came, which features the haunting, introspective singles, “Rosary, & Song Man.”
Though raised in a musical household, Troy was a late bloomer with regards to music. Focusing on athletics as a young man, and into his college years. After tragically losing his father in his sophomore year, Troy yearned for a fresh start and transferred to Boston College, where he was overheard singing at work by local musicians. He joined them for jam sessions and honed his craft, using music as a way to grieve.
In the summer of 2013, Troy relocated to New York to advance his career in music, eventually joining forces with accomplished producer Dante Lattanzi of Caelum Music Production. Together, Troy and Dante have produced work that has been impressing industry leaders and garnering leagues of enthusiastic new fans & ultimately getting the attention of NBC’s hit singing competition “The Voice.”
Troy was invited to audition for season 12 of the hit show, and soared through the competition all the way to the Top 12. Troy’s unique & soulful vocal style caught the attention of all four coaches during his blind audition performance where he turned all four chairs and ultimately chose coach Gwen Stefani.
Gwen continually praised Troy for his emotional connectivity and eventually brought him to the Top 12. Every performance of Troy's (with the exception of Angel Eyes, which was not fully broadcast by the show) immediately broke the Top 10 on the iTunes rock charts. His last performance of Tom Petty's Free Fallin' hit #1 on the iTunes rock chart and reached as hight as #54 in the all genre's chart.
After an incredibly strong 2016 & 2017, The Voice was a welcomed exclamation point to an incredible break out year for Troy. Before The Voice came knocking, Troy’s music was soaring on Spotify and iTunes, with over 100k monthly listeners and thousands of album sales. Troy now has over 5 million total plays on Spotify since December 2016, with his viral songs, “Song Man, and Rosary” leading the way with a over million plays a piece.
Authentic, soulful and beautiful, Troy Ramey stands out amongst the masses as a much needed reminder that music comes from passion and sincerity.
