Troy Kemp

With multiple Australian Country Chart #1 singles, a Golden Guitar, 2 CMC Awards, 3 People’s Choice Awards and almost a decade of touring under his belt, Troy Kemp is one of Australia’s most recognisable country music talents.
As one half of award winning duo McAlister Kemp, Troy achieved recognition and accolades both locally and internationally, headlining some of the nations biggest music festivals and has remained a mainstay on country radio and television charts over the past 6 years.
With McAlister Kemp folding in March 2015 Troy now continues to grow his profile in both Australia and overseas as a solo artist. Troy released his debut solo album “Against The Grain” through Social Family Records in December 2015, a hard-hitting country-rock album that really defines Kemp and his sound.
The first 2 video singles off the album “How We Roll Around Here” and “Small Town Girl” both climbed their way to the #1 Spot on CMC and both got to #1 on the Australian Top 40 Country Radio Charts.
As 2016 came to an end Troy was named The 2016 Planet Country Radio Awards “Male Artist” and “Australian Artist” of the Year.
Troy was recently “fan voted” one of the 5 finalist’s for Male Artist of The Year at this years CMC Awards alongside Lee Kernaghan, Troy Cassar-Daley, Adam Brand and Travis Collins. About his album Troy says, “Against the Grain is the result of a year and a half of writing and recording songs with my good friend and guitar virtuoso, Jeremy Barnes. With a great band of accomplished musicians around him Troy Kemp is looking forward to bringing the “Against The Grain Tour” around Australia.
