Troy Von Balthazar(夏威夷)源于Nirvana同一时期的音乐运动。1993至94年, Kurt Cobain曾邀请只有二十出头的TVB的组合Chokebore参与Nirvana史上的美国最后一次巡回演出。Kurt Cobain没有看走眼,TVB确实是难得可贵的词曲作家和演绎者。他与他的组合在世界各地频繁演出并录制了6张大碟直至2003年乐队解散。
从此TVB开始他的独奏生涯,包括在著名Elliott Smith录音室录制了他的个人首张专辑的一部分以及直至2006年的长时间世界巡回演出(总数超过200场)。在此后一段时间,他集中精力撰写了他的第一部微型小说《3个女孩子》,但是他从未放弃过对音乐的执着与热爱。与大师Leonard Cohen的邂逅与深厚友谊使他投入更多新的歌词创作。
他的两张新独奏专辑于2009年问世(专辑中TVB一人操刀:吉他,唱,鼓,键盘),在他新一轮的世界巡演计划中,这位美国俊朗的老牌音乐家将向中国乐迷们演绎他的新歌曲,按他自己对他新曲的评定是“悲伤-转化剂”。
Expanding on the slow, sad landscapes of CHOKEBORE's later works. TROY VON BALTHAZAR (Hawaïi) is certainly one of the most precious songwriter from the 90's.
In the beginning of his career he was the frontman of the Hawaiian band CHOKEBORE. In 93 & 94 KURT COBAIN chose his band like warm-up band for several dates in US. At this time, the leader of NIRVANA thought CHOKEBORE was one of the best band on stage. So, with KURT COBAIN like godfather, CHOKEBORE started to play all around the world ... and from 1993 to 2003 they recorded 6 albums:

- Motionless 1993
- Anything Near Water 1995
- A Taste For Bitters 1996
- Black Black 1998
- It's a miracle 2002
- A Part From Life 2003 (Live Recording CD)

In 2005, he released his first solo album (a part of it was recorded 2 years before in the studio of his friend: ELLIOTT SMITH). From 2004, he performs himself on stage, more than 200 gigs in Europe and U.S and during his travels he wrote a book about women he met: "3 Girls" (2006). So now, his life is writing & music and in this mood he continues to multiply experiences with some songwriters as LEONARD COHEN to prepare his new album (2nd solo album) which will be available in China on June 09.
