With multiple Australian Country Chart and CMC #1 singles, a Golden Guitar, 3 CMC Awards, 3 People’s Choice Awards, a Frank Ifield International Spur Award and almost a decade of touring under his belt, Troy Kemp is one of Australia’s most recognisable country music talents.
As one half of award winning duo McAlister Kemp, Troy achieved recognition and accolade both locally and internationally, headlining some of the nations biggest music festivals and has remained a mainstay on country radio and television charts over the past 8 years.
With McAlister Kemp folding in March 2015 Troy now continues to grow his profile in both Australia and overseas as a solo artist.
Troy released his debut solo album “Against The Grain” through Social
Family Records in December 2015, a hard-hitting country-rock album that
really defined Kemp and his sound.
The first 2 video singles off the album “How We Roll Around Here” and “Small Town Girl” both climbed their way to the #1 Spot on CMC, The Country Music Channel, and both got to #1 on the Australian Top 40 Country Radio Charts.
Along the way Kemp was named The 2016 Planet Country Radio Awards “Male Artist” and “Australian Artist” of the Year and was then “fan voted” as one of the 5 finalist’s for Male Artist of The Year at the 2017 CMC Awards alongside Lee Kernaghan, Troy Cassar-Daley, Adam Brand and Travis Collins.
2018 has started with a bang for Troy with his “side duo project”, Tailgate Drive, with Damien Baguley from the Viper Creek Band, picking up the Rob Potts New Talent Of the Year Award at the CMC Awards.
Troy’s brand new single, the laid back summertime song, “Beach Mode”, has hit the ground running and is rapidly heading north on Country Radio Charts. The video clip for the song, featuring an hilarious cameo by country comedian, Buddy Goode, has just landed on CMC and is already receiving rave reviews.
Troy is currently working on a new Single due out in the coming months.
