A 2011 GRAMMY Award nominee for his album Backatown (Verve), Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews’ virtuosity and high-energy live shows have drawn unanimous raves worldwide with Rolling Stone calling him a “must-see act.” He was named to Forbes' “30 Under 30” Class of 2016 for Music along with Selena Gomez, The Weeknd and Jon Batiste.
Andrews is passing down his musical knowledge and keeping the New Orleans brass band tradition alive through his own Trombone Shorty Foundation and Music Academy, and since 2014 has worked as a “Turnaround Artist'” with the Turnaround Arts Initiative, a program that helps low-performing schools improve through intensive arts programs.
