Synthtron is Troy Rogers. Influenced primarily by synthesizer bands of the 80's, Synthtron began its musical journey in 1988. Continuing to write music thorugh the early 1990's Synthtron found it difficult to fit into the music scene due to the Seattle grunge movement having settled on the local music scene in Richmond ,VA. Synths and music created with them at that time seemed to have shifted more underground and Synthtron was not interested in that direction at the time and forged through the years creating original music (even landing gigs that have aired on Television.) Creating music for commercials promoting TV News, to selling Ford vehicles from Virginia to Texas. Synthtron wrapped up work on a 9th album titled "One Trick Pony" (Fall 2014) and is in the process of putting together new material.
