Troy Andrews received his nickname when he was seen playing a trombone (too big for his tiny frame) as a small child in a second line. Something of a prodigy, he studied at and graduated from the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA) drawing the attention of luminaries like Wynton Marsalis. Before his 20th birthday, he released three albums: 12&Shorty with brother James Andrews, The End of the Beginning with an epoynmous quintet and Orleans and Claiborne with his band of the same name. He also played as part of Lenny Kravitz’s band on tour in 2005 and 2006.
