WHO IS TroBiz... he's an east coast favorite based in Halifax, Nova Scotia and the son of two respected musicians, Coleman Howe & Muzz Marshall, who have shared stages with the Funkadelics, Kool & the Gang, Sister Sledge, Teddy Prendergast, Patti Austin, Diane Brooks and Ben E. King! That soulful feel flows in Tro's bloodstream. Tro uses his musical background to make his original musicianship of today sound like vintage samples. It's the real thing! Funky as funky gotta be. And guess what? He even co-produces with his father "Coley" and together, they blend eras. He also credits his roots in Africville, Nova Scotia, for that soulful feel in his music. ABOUT TroBiz... Urban/Hiphop artist, producer, TroBiz, based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, has always led a double life - a family man and entrepreneur who runs a well-established barber business, and then TroBiz, the artist... born to a natural rhythm and brought up in a household filled with music and harmony. He sat at his first set of drums at age 9 and has never missed a beat since. He emerged on to the music scene approximately 13 years ago, and has released 3 CDs during that time. His love for both Nu skool and O'le skool has led him to a fresh, new and unique sound, blending the eras unheard of before and second to none. TroBiz has poured himself into this work and has kicked off with praise as a triple, African Nova Scotian Music Association (ANSMA) award winner as well as a nod from CBC's Galaxie, as one of their 2006 Rising Stars. This ECMA nominee has shared a stage with the Rascalz during their Northern Touch Tour, Jazzy Jeff and Ludaris to name a few. HIS SIGNATURE MUSIC... can be heard on the video entitled "The Amp", by Mack Dawg which has opened doors to the southern States as well as overseas with 250,000 distributed globally. TroBiz has also composed instrumental tracks featured on The Learning Channel (TLC), the CTV series 'Forensic Science "Exhibit A" and CBC television series 'Street Cents'. Much Music has extended Trobiz support in providing TroBiz medium rotation for his first video "Neva Satisfied". The video for Tro's club banger track "Do What You Do", video produced and directed by Maurice Hemmings is targeted for release on Much Music.
