“Unbreakable” was written by TROY (co-writer Evan Frederiksen) and elevated by award-winning producer Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Carrie Underwood, Daughtry) at Sienna Studios in Nashville, TN. “I’ve worked with some of the top artists in the industry and TROY’s right on track to being on that list,” says Frederiksen. “”Unbreakable” is one of several songs we’ve been working on together. It’s the perfect song for the times.”
“The song is a reminder to myself of the person I choose to be. If you want something in life, you need commitment, sacrifice, and the courage to make it happen.” TROY says. “It’s scary, but the reward of getting out of your comfort zone is far greater than the risk of not. I hope this song inspires others to stop being afraid and to trust in themselves.”
The singer got his start in New York City musical theatre, acting and singing in the musicals Oliver! and A Christmas Story. Eventually moving to Los Angeles, his talents brought him on screen where he landed roles in the TV shows This Is Us (NBC), The Last Ship (TNT), and Victorious (Nickelodeon). Performing has always been a part of TROY‘s life, but music has always been his driving passion. “One day I was playing a song of mine for a friend in LA and she said ‘there are people in the world who really need to hear this!’ It was at that moment I decided it’s time for me to be honest with myself and face the music,” says TROY.
TROY is working closely with producer Marti Frederiksen and music manager Michael Keeling (production/creative design work on Coldplay’s “Speed of Sound”, No Doubt’s “Tragic Kingdom” and Kacey Musgraves “Follow Your Arrow”) to enhance his musical talents. TROY will be releasing more music from his catalog in the coming months. A private link for media review of “Unbreakable” is available upon request.
