Rocket Surgery music
An intimate, unpretentious and relaxed studio where artists, actors, directors and musicians can come to collaborate, create and hone their projects.
Born and raised in Michigan, Troy earned his bachelors degree in music on classical guitar while simultaneously playing in jazz combos, rock bands, and classical guitar duets. Immediately after graduation he moved to Los Angeles to join an established band working on closing a record deal with Sony and then A&R Guru, Randy Jackson. In need of a day job, Hardy found a small music studio in Woodland Hills, CA that just happened to be looking for help. He was fortunate enough to land the job with seasoned musicians and composers, Cory Lerios & John D'Andrea. Troy got a front row seat to witness the high pressure & quick pace of the film & television industry, an invaluable education. After several years with Lerios & D’Andrea he received the opportunity to join W.G. “Snuffy” Walden’s team. Walden and a small group of highly talented support staff were all at the top of their game, and working with high profile clients at the time Hardy joined the team. Both companies always had a wide variety of projects and situations that have helped Troy develop his diverse skill set. These amazing environments allowed him to develop as a as composer, producer and musician as well as a multi-Emmy nominated music editor.
