Rocker Justine Blazer, violinist Lucy Davis Hull, and pianist Jake Fisher unite in joint pursuit of a sound that they believe is currently missing from the pop music canon. Three individuals have collided from vastly different backgrounds to become “three in unison,” hence: “TROIKA.” For years, Justine Blazer has delighted country music audiences with her unique sound of Detroit soul and modern pop. Justine has won the National Ram Trucks Battle of the Bands competition, opened for acts such as Jason Aldean, Justine Moore, Lee Brice, and Lonestar, and recorded six albums over the course of her career. Lucy Davis Hull, originally from NJ, began playing classical viola at age 6. Her greatest musical accomplishments include touring Europe with the Princeton Orchestra as a featured solo artist, studying with renowned teachers from the Juilliard and Cincinnati Conservatories, and sharing the stage with the acclaimed artists Sarah Chang and Joshua Bell.
A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, Mercury Nashville’s Travis Denning vividly remembers the moment he realized he wanted to pursue music for a living. He was seven years old sitting in his Dad’s truck and heard AC/DC for the first time. From then on, he was hooked and devoured all types of music from country, pop, rock and heavy metal. Travis started playing local bars at the age of 16 and built a solid following from his distinctive songs and raucous guitar licks. He moved to Nashville in 2014 and within a year signed a publishing deal with Jeremy Stover’s RED Creative Group. After securing outside cuts by Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Michael Ray and Chase Rice he caught the attention of Universal Music Group where he eventually signed a record deal in 2017.
