ABOUT TROY MACCUBBIN:
Alloy Tracks founder and proud Australian Troy MacCubbin is a longtime professional guitarist, singer and songwriter. He began playing guitar at the age of 10 while growing up on a small farm in the Bush of Australia. A real life “Crocodile Dundee,” he often had kangaroos, koalas, snakes and lizards as pets. Troy joined his father’s band when he was 14. After many years of playing guitar in numerous rock & roll bands throughout his native country, and earning extra cash by teaching guitar to students of all ages, he left Australia in 1997, relocating to Los Angeles to further his musical career.
To initially survive his new life in LA, Troy was forced to perform numerous unusual jobs – these included impersonating Austin Powers, delivering flowers, working as a DJ, and even wearing a giant Jellybean costume on Hollywood Blvd. to sell candy. Eventually, he landed an audition as a guitarist for a band that went on to win the LA Music Rock Awards. Following this success, Troy performed as a guitarist with a number of LA-area bands. After one such performance at the legendary Viper Room, Troy was scouted by Interscope Records and asked to join famed Russian singing duo T.A.T.U. Troy toured the world with them.
After his gig with T.A.T.U., Troy began to tour as a guitarist with other noted superstars. These have included singers Kelly Clarkson, Enrique Iglesias, and, most recently, Wilson Phillips.
Currently, Troy is collaborating on new creating music with noted international writers and with producer/drummer Mark Damian for a new band and recording project the men are calling “GorillaBear.” The new project will be infused with distinct styles of music that Troy expects will work extremely well for placements within movie trailers and advertising campaigns through Alloy Tracks.
