A blend of musical styles and performance experience has given Lenore Troia a unique place in the entertainment world. Expressing her self with smooth vocals and keyboard versatility, Howard Thompson of the New York Times called her "a mini jewel of an entertainer."
In the Florida Keys Lenore has made a home and a name for herself with her clever and unique brand of island music. The Miami Herald describes her as "Dynamic...with confidence and skill...entertaining people from all over the globe" and the Key West Citizen says Lenore "throws a hell of a party."
People have called her a 'female Jimmy Buffett' and some feel she is a voice for folks who travel from cold and harsh northern winters to the welcoming tropical warmth.
On her CD Jetset to Sunset, she sings about encountering the islands and suddenly forgetting everything about your past life in the song "Coconut Amnesia." It also includes "Point Me South I 95" which is the definitive driving tune for people heading to the warm weather. The title cut "Jetset to Sunset" will get you ready to jump on a plane to get to some far off exotic destination in time for sunset celebration. "Key Largo" is everyone's favorite sing along and Harry Belefontes "Island in the Sun" will let you reminisce about that beautiful tropical vacation. "Rush" is on of Lenore's most requested love songs and "Save Paradise" is a reminder of how precious these islands are.
A mini jewel of an entertainer"

"Dynamic...with confidence and skill...entertaining people from all over the globe with island-y blend of Caribbean and rock music and witty patter....."

"Throws a hell of a party."
KEY WEST CITIZEN Key West, FL
"I've never heard Lenore sound better, and that's saying volumes. Lenore Troia is probably one of the best singles you may ever hear."
Valerie Ridenour KEY WEST THE NEWSPAPER Key West, FL
"Troia's versatility as a pianist and lyricist is truly a key to her success, but the singer-songwriter who earns her living by touring piano bars is misplaced; her home is the concert stage. Troia not only is an accomplished pianist and singer, she has a strong stage presence and obviously can adapt her repertoire to any performing environment."
Shirley Barnes PROGRESS Charlottesville, VA
"Lenore has been writing songs and singing in Key West since the 90's. She sings of sunsets, of love, and of leaving it all behind to come to our island."
