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 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.

He currently mentors and tutors young musicians in the urban areas of Houston, TX.

Charles G Danna of United Internet Resouces/URLABE by Major Record Label Executive H town artist Troy Barnett has put together a cool and catchy rap song. The lyrics are a clever and humorous take on gold digging women. Since Troy plays trumpet, the horns are his arrangement and he probably played them as well. The production is first class, which goes to show that not only is Troy a talented artist but also an excellent producer as well. Troy is also a great vocalist and you should check out his new CD ‘I’m Not Him’ to hear the full extent of this multi-faceted talent.
