Troy Kingi

aka Troy King & the Electric Haka Boogie, Troy Kingi and the Galactic Chiropractors, Troy Kingi and the Upperclass, Troy Kingi & the Clutch


Most musicians don’t see the bigger picture, they’re too busy getting out the single or EP, planning the gig or short tour. But Troy Kingi is not like most musicians, he has a masterplan.

Kingi – singer, songwriter, guitarist and actor among other things – has set himself the project of releasing 10 albums in 10 years. That, as the sports commentators say, is a big ask. But even more demanding on him is that they will all be in different genres.
