Michael Troy

A local of Fall River, Massachusetts and now residing in neighboring Somerset, Michael has been playing solo sets and supporting others with a varied showcase of his own work for over 20 years. However, in the past 8 years, Michael has devoted more time to his music...the results of which are collected in his debut release, "Whispers in the Wind" and his second release in 2004 of "Romancing the Moon" and in the spring of 2009, "Mill Town Boy."

“You believe every word of it, every line of every song. That’s because Michael has seen it, done it, and been it. His songs are about real people who have real lives. People who work and love and triumph over everyday obstacles that we all face, and sometimes fail. He writes of the people that populate the seacoast of his native Massachusetts but are they that different from the people that you know? And as soon as you’ve heard the songs don’t you feel like you’ve known them all your life?

Michael is a rare observer who can condense a story into a few simple verses. He is a rare writer who creates poetry that sounds like speech. It seems to be just the way people talk, only better. Michael is a rare composer who writes melodies that sound like the people whose stories they carry.

In ancient days Michael might have been called a bard, but rather than telling tales of the epic battles he chooses to tell stories of the people whose battles are smaller but, in their own way, just as epic. As you listen to Michael’s songs you come to know these folks and you come to like them. As you listen to his songs you’ll also come to know Michael, you’ll like him too, and believe him, every line of every song.”
