Pardon The Introduction – Troy NōKA is L.A.’s One-Man-Band
If you’re an army brat then it’s not strange that someone who was born in Texas can also call Germany and everywhere else in between, “home.” It should also come as no surprise that said individual was immensely influenced by living in various places. That’s the remarkable case with Troy NōKA. We first Troy NōKA as “T-Wiz,” a budding producer who slung beats for Chris Brown and close-friend, Frank Ocean. However, the LA-based, one-man-band is now preparing to step from behind the scenes to reveal himself as an artist under the new alias, “Troy NōKA,” by releasing his debut album, Free Dreaming. Here, he quickly breaks down, his worldly influences and why his album has no boundaries.
“Free Dreaming to me means no limits,” says NōKA. “I never wanted to dream things that had definitive limits, like being a doctor or something. I’d rather dream about starting something like the Red Cross. That’s the way I want my music to be, limitless.”
