Troy Conn started playing guitar at age thirteen. Soon after, he was playing shows before he could even drive himself to them. By sixteen, he was on the scene performing in local rock clubs. At UNC Charlotte, Troy studied classical guitar and, after graduating, was invited to study at Berklee Guitar Sessions under a full scholarship. Versatile in jazz, classical, and rock, Troy has performed across the country and overseas. He is a native to Charlotte, NC, where he regularly plays with his own bands - Ocie Davis Trio, Al Sergel Trio, Bunky Moon, and Fat Face - as well as with local musicians and with artists on tour. Troy often utilizes his diverse background in styles to perform with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, and numerous pit orchestras. When he 's not playing, he's often teaching and mentoring younger musicians, from elementary school through the university level. In addition to this, he also teaches a Jazz camp for The Jazz Arts Initiative as well as Community School of the Arts and does private, one-on-one instruction. His latest CD, Old and New, is set for release in Spring 2018. Keep an eye out for a list of shows and tour dates!
