We all have a fantasy of escaping to a tropical island. Lingering cold northern nights can lead us to visions of warm sultry breezes and sand beneath our feet. A dull routine can have us longing for carefree days and a visit to another reality. Key West singer/ songwriter Lenore Troia gives us the chance to live that dream in the lyrics and music she creates. This highly inspired collection of songs takes listeners further into Lenore's captivating getaway journey.
Sometimes sensual, sometimes humorous, her songs beckon us to playful and exotic places. It's a musical landscape away from the real world; a trip to paradise if only for a moment in time.
Troia's stories are told in her melodies sitting atop a well-crafted hybrid of rhythms. Smooth vocals and keyboard versatility highlight diverse arrangements mixing pop, jazz, rock, calypso and reggae into a unique brand of sound.
The success of her first self produced CD Jetset to Sunset led to continued musical accomplish-ments. Followed by Fishin' You Were Here, Wild Island Night and a holiday album called, Mistletoe Island Magic Lenore has been operating her own independent label, SeaQuence, as well as fulfilling a full time performance schedule.
Expanded from her classically trained roots, she works as an electronic musician. Her personal studio centers around a computer based canvas incorporating an array of synthesizers and sampled sounds.
A mini jewel of an entertainer" Howard Thompson NEW YORK TIMES NYC, NY

June Keith MIAMI HERALD Miami, FL
"A musical powerhouse, Troia plays smoking keyboards, and has the art of writing a pop song down to a science."
Christine Naughton SOLARES HILL Key West, FL
"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."
