Troy Von Balthazar

Troy Von Balthazar, before working solo as TvB, became famous in the 90’s as the singer and songwriter of L.A./Hawaii cult band Chokebore. They toured all around the world, including 10 shows supporting Nirvana on their final tour, and released 5 LPs, landmarks in independant rock‘s history. By the way, TvB was born in Hawaii and used to be a skateboarder, but now lives between California and Berlin, where you could see him ride his bike, en danseuse.

Troy Von Balthazar’s 4th studio album, Knights of Something, was recorded in Berlin and the South of France. He used a combination of an old Tascam 388, tape machine and Protools, a bunch of amazing guitar pedals, and vintage microphones. It’s lo-fi songwriting and recording at it’s best, stream of consciousness music structures and powerful lyrics. The songs create a very distinct atmosphere that is really “The TvB sound”.
