‘Like A Hit To Me’ is the story of a guy looking back on how he met his girl. It paints the picture of how a chance meeting in a coffee shop led to a fun night on the town, some drinking on the beach the next day and a relationship that still rocks the guy’s world to this day.
With multiple Australian Country Chart and CMC #1 singles, a Golden Guitar, three CMC Awards, three People’s Choice Awards, a Frank Ifield International Spur Award and almost a decade of touring under his belt, Troy Kemp is one of Australia’s most recognisable country music talents.
As one half of award winning duo McAlister Kemp, late 2015 saw the first two video singles, ‘How We Roll Around Here’ and ‘Small Town Girl’ from ‘Against The Grain’, Troy’s debut solo album, both climb their way to the #1 Spot on the Country Music Channel, and both hit the #1 spot on the Australian Top 40 Country Radio Charts.
Since then Troy was named the fan voted 2016 Planet Country Radio Awards Male Artist and Australian Artist of the Year before picking up the Rob Potts New Talent Of the Year Award at the 2018 CMC Awards with his side, duo project, Tailgate Drive.
March 2019 saw Troy again hit the #1 spot on the CMC Chart with ‘Hung Up On You’, his catchy duet with fellow Aussie country rocker, Jayne Denham. ‘Hung Up On You’ was followed by the singles ‘My Favourite Thing’ and ‘Soundtrack’, two well-crafted, modern country tracks that continue to see impressive streaming and download numbers across all digital platforms.
