My career has been a wild ride. The years spent in my band Runaway Saints, are my fondest memories. We toured the country, signed to a major, left the major, played to 5 people, played arenas, moved to nashville, moved to LA, and then we got burnt out.
But I kept going. Because honestly, it’s all I know, and it’s what I love.
This is my solo project. These songs have been written alone, with best friends, in LA, in Nashville, during relationships, during break ups, and recorded in make shift apartment studios.
Oh, and I just started a record label, with my publishing company, called East Music Row, because this project is truly a blend of the songs I write during the day on music row, and the bars I drink at after, on the east side.
Is it indie? Is it singer songwriter? Is it americana?
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.
In the summer of 2013, Troy relocated from Boston 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 accepted an invitation to audition for season 12 of the hit show, and advanced into the Top 12. Troy’s unique and 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.
Every performance of Troy's 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.
Rising singer-songwriter and New York City via Nashville transplant, Allie Dunn has always drawn inspiration from the Laurel Canyon classic folk pop singer songwriters she has admired her whole life, from discovering the Eagles via her parents record collection in her teenage bedroom to listening to her records over and over in her dorm room in New York City, finding the courage to make the leap into being a full time musician and leave a potential fulfilling a stable career option behind.
Since she has become a go-to songwriter for up-and-coming artists in Nashville and now with her upcoming EP “Good As Gone,” Dunn makes her singer-songwriter solo debut, with an expertly crafted, fully realized work that blends sounds across heartland rock, modern Americana and Nashville’s own brand of radio-ready pop country. Dunn may be a Nashville transplant, but after just a short time in Music City she’s already a force leaving her mark.
