Troy Kokol has built a solid reputation in the music industry as a songwriter, winning awards and helping artists break onto the charts for over a decade now. In fact one of the first songs he wrote together with his wife Joni became an immediate hit, pushing the duo to the front of the country music world.
Troy will tell you himself he would go on to build his wings on the way down, strengthening his skills as a songwriter and learning how to produce and mix tracks for the artists he was working with. Troy eventually started to collect some tracks that sounded strongest with his own voice, and decided to begin recording them for release.
Almost a decade later Troy has final spread his wings as far as he can, finally leaving the comfort of his 9 to 5 to focus entirely on the foundation he has built himself with his art. This decision has also allowed Troy to release his second album ‘Lonely Ghost’, a pop charged folk album guaranteed to get you moving.
Troy also continues to expand his talents, recently learning claymation and animation. Which he promptly put to use on his music video for his latest single ‘Lightbulb’. Like the song, and the album it comes from, Troy did 100% of the work that went into the video, from writing the script, making the figures, and all the filming and editing.
Join Troy Kokol as he shares his experiences of building his wings on his way down, and then using them to carry himself as far as possible!
