 Based in Newcastle, NSW, Troy Martin Kemp is an artist on the rise. At age 33, Troy has an impressive musical history and an exciting future…….
In 1997 Troy released his first solo, independent EP, ‘Scratchin’ In The Dirt’. The EP showcased an acoustically driven swag of country rock songs that caught the attention of both music lovers and The Music Industry alike.

During this time The Troy Kemp Band was becoming a popular drawcard on the Sydney Music Scene, opening for artist’s such as

Daryl Braithwaite, Richard Clapton, Deisel and Jeff Lang to name a few.

Troy was a featured guest artist on the TV music program ‘Ground Zero’ and due to his popularity was featured in the popular ladies ‘B Magazine’.

Troy also features as guitarist in Lee Kernaghan’s ‘Goondiwindi Moon’ music video.

From a field of 180 bands, The Troy Kemp Band finished 2nd in the Grand Final of the 1998 ‘Breeding Ground’ band competition held at The Hard Rock Café, Sydney. Troy went on to record his second EP and was invited to play a month of gigs at The Hard Rock Hotel, Bali, in January 1999.

The past 4 years has seen Troy performing and song-writing with songwriters in Canada and Nashville, USA.

Troy is currently performing regularly in Newcastle with his sights set on breaking back into the Australian Country Music Scene at Tamworth 2006.
