Troy Thielke was born on January 5, 1993 to officer parents Todd and Cathy Thielke. His musical gifts lie in an area unlike the SA brass banding realm: that of the rap and alternative persuasion. He moved to the Royal Oak Citadel Corps in the summer of 2008, where he first met Fred on the road to Camp Wonderland for CBLI. The idea of “TroyFred Productions” would not come until two months later, after their first promotion at the Royal Oak Corps and Troy wanted to do more. Being a co-founder of the team, Troy has been an invaluable asset with his ideas, sense of realism and creativity, and levelheadedness.
