Troy Michael is full-throttle, straight forward rockin' modern country solo artist that brings an arena-vibe show to every venue played. Based in the heart of Nashville, TN. Troy is one one mission: to take today's modern country and infuse not only a very roots-rock vibe, but a boarder-line 80's arena-glam rock vibe complete with big songs, big shows, an edgy image and tons of swagger to boot! Troy Michael and his live band are taking the modern country cues of his heroes: Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean, Rascal Flatts. And infusing a roots-rock vibe of: Tesla, Kid Rock, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Black Crowes and bringing an arena-rock hair vibe of: Def Leppard, Motley, and Poison right to your ears!
The first single: "She Glows" is a very hooky, modern country song that has a Def Leppard meets Keith Urban vibe to it and Troy hopes to have a cross-over hit here. It was inspired by Troy looking at a girl he fell head over heels for and every time they locked eyes her pretty face and eyes seemed to ...glow!..big-time! It's also meant to be inspired by beautiful things and surroundings like the autumn leaves of River Road in the area of Ohio where Troy is originally from. Also by that spark you get when someone glows when you are around them ....it's meant to be universal: "about anyone that has a person in their life. It could be a girlfriend, a wife, a child, best-friend that illuminates your every day life!
Troy is also busy with his other Nashville based band "American Swagger" where he plays drums and writes original music that is more of a rock edge and is lined up with some amazing cats and hope to be playing the clubs of Nashville and have a killer cd out soon and plan on touring the US. "Overall, anyone can be an internet rockstar...but I am taking the approach that all the bands I grew up on have done, Which is through hard-work, playing live original music with insane live shows. I intend on bringing the swagger, and good times and rock n' roll attitude to American Country Music. "Just gimme a big ole stage to run around on, plenty of cold beer, a telecaster, and you local smokin" hot homecoming queen...and I will bring that honest, proud red-blood American attitude and swagger back....and then some!"
