Troy Grady

I was raised in the land of Camaros and Billy Joel. I now reside in the land of St. Anthony medallions and Manhattan Special. Astute geographers will note that these are technically the same land.

Don Johnson and Yasir Arafat notwithstanding, I have played guitar since before daily shaving was imperative. I have played piano for even longer. I have given up the organ. Ok that’s a lie.

I once discovered a numerological pattern in the Divine Comedy which, unfortunately, had already been discovered. The department heads were unconvinced, but if I had independently discovered calculus, I would be no less certain of my greatness. So I remain foolishly undeterred.Currently, I purport to have discovered the secrets of shred.
