Bio

Brian Troy grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. Music has been a part of his
life from an early age. He started in elementary school with the viola and
trumpet. When he was about 10 years old he picked up the bass guitar.
Trumpet and bass remained his main instruments throughout high school
and into college. His musical skills earned him a scholarship to the University
of Louisville where he studied music composition.

After college, Brian followed a career in computers. He spent a long six years
on the road as a key member of a large consulting group. As his career took
him further away from music, he longed to get back home to his family, his
hometown, and making music. He quickly setup a small professional studio
in his home where he continuously writes and records new material.

Brian was recently recognized as the vocalist and bass player of the corporate
rock group, Stëampünk. Stëampünk scored a coveted spot in Fortune
Magazine’s Battle of the Corporate Bands, sponsored by the Rock-n-Roll
Hall of Fame. Stëampünk earned their way to the regional showcase at the
Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville in July of 2007. Since then, Stëampünk
has played various Louisville venues.
