Anna and Lindsey Troy have been tweaking their own Ani DiFranco-inspired rock sound since their early teenage years. The sisters, who go by the Troys moniker, credit their dad's love of music for getting things started. He got his daughters playing the piano before they were five, but it was his adoration for the Grateful Dead that truly affected the Troys. Being exposed to the Dead's carefree musical presence and personally knowing Jerry Garcia impressed the Troys enough to make music on their own. Upon entering high school, the Troys joined the SoCal coffeehouse scene at the dawn of the new millennium. In 2003, the girls made their Elektra debut with Massaging Your Ego. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi
