T.J. Troy

Grammy® Award-winning artist T.J. Troy brings virtuosity, style, knowledge and experience to the broad range of percussion music he champions. From the deep traditions of Indian and Middle Eastern percussion, to the rich complexity of Contemporary Classical Music, to the sheer power of modern drumset playing, T.J. has developed lines of symmetry and expression that allow him to move freely between styles. He has performed at some of the most prestigious festivals of traditional and contemporary music worldwide, including the National Folk Festival, Greensboro, NC (2016), Sounds of Arabia Festival (UAE 2012), the Arab Music Conference (Egypt 2007), the Jerash Festival of Arts (Jordan 2007), and the Territoria Festival (Russia 2009). His voice and bass marimba performance on ensemble Partch’s Plectra and Percussion Dances contributed to the group’s 2014 Grammy® for Best Classical Compedium, and is   Principal Percussionist for MESTO, an internationally recognized orchestra specializing in Middle Eastern Classical Music. He has premiered operatic works from composers Anne LeBaron and Gavin Bryers, and has performed alongside such artists as Pete Townshend, Billy Idol, Ustad Aashish Khan, Harry Shearer (Derek Smalls from This is Spinal Tap), Mamak Khadem, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Sahba Motallebi, Emil Richards, and Cirque du Soleil. T.J. was a featured performer/clinician at PASIC 2016, and is a regular artist/clinician at the Seattle World Rhythm Festival, as well as presenting workshops and masterclasses throughout the United States, Asia, and the Middle East. 
T.J.’s work as drummer/vocalist, composer, and producer are exemplified through his ensemble, Run Downhill, a revolutionary cross-contextualization of original Americana/Folk Rock music, comic book art and narrative, and mixed-media live performance. His breakthrough album/comic book, SPURS #1, was selected for competition at the 2015 Seattle Transmedia and Independent Film Festival (STIFF); his most recent work, SPURS #2.2/Midnight Road Trip, has been lauded as “…one of the best albums that you will come across in a very long time…” (Sheila Hopper, Band Blurb), and continues to make waves amongst music and comic professionals, journalists, and audiences worldwide. He was awarded the Gaia Award from the Moondance International Film Festival for his score to Den and Nikka Serras’ Seven Swans in 2005.

Warum Schlagwerk

Qualität, Feeling und Beständigkeit. Seit über 15 Jahren spiele ich Schlagwerk Instrumente und seit jeher behält das Instrument seinen klaren Ton und hebt sich nach wie vor von allen anderen ab. Schlagwerk Instrumente sind auf Langlebigkeit ausgelegt und für mein gefüllten Kalender brauche ich Instrumente, die der Belastung stand halten. 


Ganz klar die La Perù Buche. Für meinen Stil und meine Technik das beste Instrument auf dem Markt. 


World Fusion und Pop


Mamak Khadem Ensemble; Partch; Run Downhill; the Aegea Ensemble; Alex Kiskachi


Ich arbeite mit dem Equipment, das der Ton-Ingenieur dabei hat. Das sind meistens ein Shure SM57 oder SM58 oder ein AKG D112. Das natürlichste Ergebnis habe ich im Studio mit einer Kombination aus einem D112 an der Rückseite und einem AKG 414 an der Vorderseite erreicht.
