Acclaimed young trio featuring Chris Montague (guitar), Kit Downes (keyboards) and Joshua Blackmore (drums). Their albums “Troyka” (2009), “Moxxy” (2012) and “Ornithophobia” (2015) combine jazz, progressive rock and more contemporary developments in an updating of the organ trio for the 21st Century.
"An album of tremendous promise"
"Thoroughly contemporary, yet at other times sounding pleasingly retro, Troyka's updating of the organ trio tradition for the 21st Century makes for highly refreshing listening."
"A significant step forward, but with the band's core sound and values remaining intact. "
