For New Orleans-based singer/songwriter Greg Troyer, becoming a recording artist was as simple as first getting out of the music industry.
The owner of Side One Studios, a successful recording studio and video production facility he operated for more than 13 years, the company served such well-known and diverse artists as Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, 311 and The Neville Brothers, among many others.
"I was making a really good living from the business, but I felt like the Lord was saying, 'that's enough. If you will humble yourself and let Me guide you and lead you in music, playing the music I give you-not for your glory but for Mine-your music will be heard by the nations.' Obediently, Greg stopped booking all but Christian projects in his studio. Having recently rekindled his faith after years of drifting from Christ, Greg was now the worship leader at his church, and came to realize he couldn't lead worship on Sunday mornings while working with morally questionable artists on weekdays. Coming back to the Lord at the height of his professional success was hardly bad timing, as many of Greg's industry friends perceived. Instead, the years he spent honing his skills in the studio were valuable in bringing his own project to fruition.
Greg's debut album as a Christian Artist "My Kingdom Fall" opened the doors for many opportunities. Eventually these led to the opportunity to lead worship at Celebration Church in New Orleans. Greg is proud to have now released his 2nd album "Our Savior Is Here" further fulfilling God's calling in his life. He prays it will bless you and challenge you in your relationship with God.
