This is not a bio:
Sam Trocki is a singer, songwriter, producer, musician and artist. Over the past two decades, Trocki has written smash hits and produced with some of the biggest names in music--all while developing his own unique sound that's unlike anything you've heard. He is an inventor, experimenting with sounds to create new hybrids of music. Trocki plays six instruments, including the drums, guitar, bass and piano. Trocki has also been credited for the development of one of the hottest producers in music today: 2X Grammy-winner and 27-Billboard-hits maker, Benny Blanco.
With his "Bye Polar" album (2016), Trocki effectively obliterated any genre boundaries that still existed. It's by far his most daring album to date, pushing bold and clever lyrics with space-age production into melodic electronic territory. It's also his first concept album and surprisingly the storyline flows instead of rambles; a feat considering the subject matter is comprised of alien abductions and space escapades. Sam quickly brings me back to earth and explains what the album is really about.
"Bye Polar is about standing up for what you believe in," Trocki says. "It's about trying to make the best out of any bad situation that life throws your way."
Co-produced by Trocki and Benny Blanco, the "Kiss Your Chain" EP (2017) induces a feeling of danger and excitement with arrangements that feel raw - sometimes even incomplete by current music standards. Yet none of this is the product of indifference or fuzzy thinking. The record is expertly crafted and would never be confused with generic radio-ready pop-rock tunes.
Trocki was selected as a TIDAL Rising Artist in February 2017 and received a coveted homepage feature on TIDAL.
His art is an extension of his soul, a way for him to communicate his emotions and inner dimensions through sight instead of sound. He has received praise for his work, and continues to turn heads in the art world.
