About Troy Barnett

Houston, TX

ASCAP and American Idol Underground contest/chart topper musician, producer, founder and President of Phat Barz Records (A subsidiary of Tamar Entertainment Inc.) started playing music at the age of 10. His first instrument was the trumpet. Through high school he expanded his talent and skill to the entire brass family of instruments while gaining gigging experience with the Young Professional Musicians of Houston. At the age of sixteen he organized his own five member jazz band; they began performing in jazz clubs throughout the city of Houston, TX. Summer months were spent participating and studying in the Summer Jazz Workshop conducted annually by Professors Conrad Johnson, Bubba Thomas, Kyle Turner, Joe Sample, Barry Hall (Director-Duke Ellington Orchestra) and others on the campus of Texas Southern University. He later taught himself to play the organ and the piano before attending Texas Southern and Sam Houston State Universities. He is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP), the Writers Guild of America, and a Master Mason. He has played for many regional and national recording artists such as Kim Burrell-Young, Mark Gordon and Eternal Life Ministries, Charles Tyrone, Darius Brooks (Musical Director of the late Rev. Milton Brunsons Thompson Community Singers), Adrian Medearis and GODS Anointed People (GAP), Shawn McClemore, and has even shared the stage with Wynton Marsalis and Dr. Shirley Caesar. Troy presses to encourage young people of all ages, musicians AND non-musicians, that success is not in notoriety, but believing in and unleashing ones own abilities. He has provided musical accompaniment for the Missy Chu Childrens Book entitled, What Color Is Monday?, and the theme song for the Historically Black College Queens Workshop' entitled, All Hail The Queen. He currently mentors and tutors young musicians in the urban areas of Houston, TX. He is currently involved in the production of a Latin/Pop/R&B project with the immensely talented youth based super-group Caliente of the Diaz Music Institute.
