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.
