Troy Ramey has an inherent ability to reveal his pain and draw you into his music. This inimitable talent is brightly evident on his critically acclaimed debut EP When the Lights Came, which features the haunting, introspective singles “Rosary” and “Song Man”. Though raised in a musical household, Ramey was a late bloomer with regards to music, focusing on athletics as a young man. After tragically losing his father in his sophomore year of college, Ramey yearned for a fresh start and transferred to Boston College. One day, he was overheard singing at work by some local musicians. They invited him to join them for a series of jam sessions. It was at these jam sessions that he honed his craft, using music as a way to grieve. In the summer of 2013, Troy relocated to New York to advance his career in music, eventually joining forces with accomplished producer Dante Lattanzi. Together, Ramey and Lattanzi have produced work that has impressed industry leaders, garnered leagues of enthusiastic new fans, and caught the attention of NBC’s hit singing competition The Voice.
