Agreed! There are numerous young artists hoping to make a name in the genre of Hip-Hop. However none convey ideas with the deliberative flow and youthful, emotive angst as presented in the original lyrics of Eric Trotman – working under the pseudonym of “Sealy Troh.” Born to Barbadian working class parents in the suburbs of Southern California’s Antelope Valley, Sealy’s stage name is a combination of his grandfather’s surname, “Sealy” and Eric’s nickname “Troh.”
“I’m influenced by electronic, experimental, indie, hardcore and hip-hop,” Sealy says with a smile as he reminiscences on his former days as a vocalist in punk/hard rock bands. The range of musical styles Sealy Troh indulges in are eclectic. He is a fan of artist such as “He is Legend,” “Kanye West,” “Atmosphere,” “Bibio,” “Marvin Gaye” as well as “Foster the People.”
“Rapping is a do it yourself genre. If your lines or lyrics are weak than that’s on you. I wanted something that made me responsible for who I am – where I could rely on myself to show up.” When watching Troh perform you can feel his fire, you know this is a man with passion
