Troy Ramey

Born in Middlebury, Vermont, Troy Ramey discovered a love for music early on in his life. Ramey says he was initially exposed to music through his father's record collection. Artists like The Eagles, Queen, Dan Fogelberg, and James Taylor heavily influenced Ramey's musical perspective.

His father had a profound effect on his development as a musician. A lifelong guitarist himself, the elder Ramey would spend hours playing guitar and singing with Ramey's two sisters. His father's death when Troy was a sophomore in college was a particularly difficult time for him. Distracted by the loss of his father, Troy transferred out of Wentworth Institute of Technology to night school at Boston College, a decision that would end up having an unexpected positive impact on his musical career.

An alto sax player in the high school band, he didn't start playing guitar (or singing) until he was 23. While at BC, Ramey picked up a job at a Boston-area restaurant, where he met the future members of his first band, In Like Lions. A friend of Ramey's overheard him singing to himself at work, and invited him to practice with a few other co-workers. The group would gather after work and on days off, jamming and perfecting their sound. Eventually, they formed Ramey's first band, In Like Lions.

Over the next four years, In Like Lions would tour around the East Coast and beyond (including a stop at SXSW in Austin, Texas). After four years of playing together, the band decided to take a break from performing, leading Ramey to pursue a solo career. "I never wanted to be a "solo" artist," says Ramey, "…so I sought the guidance and help of some great musicians and friends and developed my songs to a point where [I] began to really believe that I had some great stuff." Ramey put together another, short-lived group, The Greater Fools, that only played one live show (a Boston Marathon Bombing Benefit gig in 2013). That show was the catalyst that drove Ramey to start his new, self-titled project.

His first release is currently in post-production, and will be debuted in the summer of 2014!

"I can't believe how well it is coming together," states Ramey. "I feel so great about this project, and I am very excited to hit the road and promote it once its finished."
