"Wisconsin artist Jon Troast alternates between folky and funky. His smoky, David Gray–style vocals jump from sweet, spunky love songs to edgier, rhythmic explorations of life and responsibility."

"you’ll want to give Second Story a second listen, and a third, and fourth …"

-Performing Songwriter -

"Jon Troast possesses that indefinable something that separates the wheat from the chaff, folksinger-wise -- that je ne se quoi of sincerity, wit, melodicism and observational power that elevates these songs from folk-pop cliché and lands them squarely in the rich storytelling tradition of a David Wilcox or a James Taylor."

"Troast’s vocals have the throaty, lived-in sound of a James Blunt or John Ondrasik, with precise yet effortless phrasing that’s pitch-perfect for these songs."

-Daily Vault -

Jon Troast’s soul is vibrantly alive, and his writing is filled with an appreciation for everything and everyone in his life. His warm, slightly raspy voice puts you right in the song, and even when he’s singing about something not so wonderful (for example, “Knock Down,” with its musings on social awkwardness), there’s something more philosophical about it than depressing. He’s a pure, honest, true folkie in his heart and soul. And he’s a pretty gifted guitar player, too."
