Troy Kokol's album Lonely Ghost was nominated for Best Folk Album for the 2018 Indigenous Music Awards.
I'm a SOCAN award winner, 2 time CCMA songwriter of the year nominee and I JUST completed my 2nd studio album, "Lonely Ghost", chalk full of new songs (produced and mixed by yours truly)...ready for some hungry ears...coming to the world soon!
As a songwriter, I've a had 200+ cuts, with a bunch of very talented folks, including Warner Music's Brett Kissel, Tenille Townes, Leaving Thomas, Chris Henderson, Ryan Laird and Shane Yellowbird....whose single, "Pick Up Truck" (written w/ Joni Delaurier) was recently listed #6 all time on Canadian country radio by Billboard!
As a producer, I've been proud to work with some amazing artists at our studio in Calgary including Brad Saunders, Nancy Laberge and Invictus/Universal Music artist Beamer Wigley...I'm loving life!! :)
