Troy started playing the trumpet at three years old. At the tender age of four he performed at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival to the amazement of many. He even went on a International tour with his adult brother when he was seven. He received his nick name from his young age and small size. He was playing the trombone before his arms were long enough to slide it fully. He is a well known trombone and trumpet player from a place well known for its brass bands and Sunday second lines through the neighborhood. During his teen years he attended and graduated from the well known New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts. Many other well famous New Orleans musicians are alumni of this program. With his band Orleans Avenue, he is following in the foot steps of his elders while blazing new trails of his own. Also, he has played himself on the cable television drama "Treme" which is about his community post the Katrina hurricane.

The young man has played with many notable artists besides his kinfolk including Lenny Kravitz, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Marc Broussard, Ivan Neville, Norah Jones and Irma Thomas.
