Part crooner, part troubadour and all storyteller, Troy is pure, unequivocal soul, evoking memories with each note he sings. With unbridled emotional power, Troy 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, & Song Man.”
Though raised in a musical household, Troy was a late bloomer with regards to music. Focusing on athletics as a young man, and into his college years. After tragically losing his father in his sophomore year, Troy yearned for a fresh start and transferred to Boston College, where he was overheard singing at work by local musicians. He joined them for jam sessions and 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 of Caelum Music Production. Together, Troy and Dante have produced work that has been impressing industry leaders and garnering leagues of enthusiastic new fans & ultimately getting the attention of NBC’s hit singing competition “The Voice.”
Authentic, soulful and beautiful, Troy Ramey stands out amongst the masses as a much needed reminder that music comes from passion and sincerity. Troy’s future is as bright as it can be. Now with an elevated platform, full of thousands of new fans. His highly anticipated next studio effort will be released shortly.
Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Johnny Gates isn't a rookie. Originally from Providence, RI, he started his first band in high school and immediately fell in love with music. Spending the first few years climbing up the ladder in the Providence scene, Johnny and his band eventually moved to Nashville, TN to chase the dream.
While in Nashville, he had a chance to work with some of music's biggest names and focus more attention on songwriting.
After getting close enough to taste his dream in Nashville, Johnny decided to pack up his gear and set sail to Los Angeles with his band, RUNAWAY SAINTS.
Since relocating to LA, Johnny has toured the US multiple times with RUNAWAY SAINTS, has become a fixture at Hollywood's prestigious Hotel Cafe, hit the road opening for Rod Stewart on tour, and recently, successfully auditioned for THE VOICE, picking GWEN STEFANI as his coach.
Johnny is currently in the studio working on his debut EP in Los Angeles and Nashville.
BUTTERCHILD is a band of five childhood friends that have been playing music collectively for over a decade. The original band members initially bonded over a mutual love of old school soul and funk music. In the Fall of 2010, they formed the now defunct band, The WonderMics. The WonderMics gigged around New England from 2010-2014 playing a mixture of funk, soul, and hip-hop. In the winter of 2016, the band decided to retire the name The WonderMics and rebrand as BUTTERCHILD. BUTTERCHILD continues in the tradition of The WonderMics, but with new sounds, more complex songwriting , and an emphasis on vocal harmonies.
