Western GuGuYelanji songman, Troy Brady, has been performing in various bands around the world for the past two decades.

Now, he is striking out on his own, releasing his debut recording Western Sons, a tribute to his connection to country, those Elders who have guided his way and his family.

From early beginnings with the hit group Aim for More, as a teenager, Troy has developed a stellar reputation and following.

In 2013 the group reformed for a special performance at Stylin' Up in Brisbane, to great acclaim and excitement.

In between, he has been part of the incredible Banawurun (Running Water) Band and the family group Troy n Trevelyn and the Tribe.

Troy has forged a reputation based on integrity and alongside this solo release has been delving deep into the language and culture of his ancestral lands.; talking to elders, learning language and creating art both visually and aurally

He works with various Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations as well as mainstream services such as correctional services, providing mentoring, songwriting and story telling opportunities across the country.

The debut recording, Western Sons sits alongside his debut into the theatre world with his piece of the same name created as part of the Playwrites Australia Festival in conjunction with Opera Australia.

Troy is being booked across Australia, is regularly played on NITV and is sought out for his gifts as a workshop facilitator and arts practitioner mentoring youth and adults.

He has performed in Los Angeles at the Muse Expo World Music Conference, won Deadly awards and is a MusicOz Award nominee.

Other stages include at Bryon Bay Blues and Roots Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, QMusic Awards, and the National NAIDOC Awards.
