From the apprehensive present, from a future packed

With unknown dangers, monstrous, terrible and new —

Let us turn for comfort to this simple fact;

We have been in trouble before … and we came through.

---Edna St Vincent Millay 1950




New album coming January 2022!



Club Passim, Cambridge, MA

Listen to some new song demos here.


Listen to O LOVE

 About my album, O LOVE:

“There's not a better folksinger out there than Troost - he writes great songs with clever lyrics, plenty of hooks and he's an astute guitar player - what else is there? Just this - Troost has a swell voice as well… You can't play this album too many times and you'll be continually amazed with what a lot can be done with such modest trappings.”

                                --Bill Locey,  Rock’n’ Roll Call, Ventura County Star


“With "Old Screen Door," Troost opens with an affecting guitar lick and vocal that could easily carry the entire piece on its own. In less than a minute, however, the song is propelled by electric guitars and a driving rhythm section that would make Dave Alvin proud… Part storyteller, part bluesman, Troost has given us a work that not only has variety, but also 13 stirring song portraits, each one artfully crafted in a way that is always in service to the song.”

                              --Jim Lipson, Tucson Weekly
