A talented young bluegrass picker makes a name for themself with regional groups, gets a shot at touring with some bigger acts, and moves to Nashville. Bigger things start to happen musically, but a new family seems more important and they decide to give up on the road life.
Well that is the story of Troy Engle, a crackerjack multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter who has spent time with Mark Newton, The Isaacs, Dale Ann Bradley and Patty Loveless. He was working with The Isaacs when his second child was born, and chose to seek his living in the studio, exercising his many skills and his entreprenuerial streak instead of his road shoes.
Troy started a company called Unplugged Demos, along with the similarly multi-talented Justin Carbone, to create quality studio demos for acoustic songwriters on a tight budget. Now he has launced an overdub business to make it easy for small home studios and low-budget projects to have him lay down instrumental tracks for their recordings.
This new venture is known as Acoustic Overdubs, and the web site explains how Troy can add banjo, mandolin, guitar, fiddle, resonator guitar, pedal steel and several other instruments to your track, quickly and for a very reasonable fee.
