Anna Troy, recent Bay Area transplant from NYC, has been wowing audiences from Oakland to Pacifica with her blazing guitar work and soulful vocals, think Amy Winehouse meets Bonnie Raitt. Her songwriting, a mix of blues, jazz and rock, was taken to new heights by her music training from Columbia University. While living in Brooklyn for twelve years, she performed with the Columbia jazz ensemble at Symphony Space, fronted her blues band at B.B. Kings, and shared the stage with her sister Lindsey’s band, Deap Vally, at the Mercury Lounge. Prior to attending Columbia, she spent many years as a gigging musician in Southern California where she released two self-produced albums and opened for international acts like The Yardbirds, Johnny Winter and America. All of this was preempted by her years as a teenager signed to Elektra Records as sister pop duo The Troys.
