“Davidson wields space like just another tool in his collection, weighing emptiness against the full force of his musical prowess. Davidson's voice is powerful — though he shows this not through overblown wailing, but rather with control and nuance. It takes a lot of power to sing with this kind of effortless restraint and finely tuned modulation… You can hear that he's hard at work carving out space in a congested artistic arena. His acute sense of structure and dynamics will serve him well on his journey.” - Jordan Adams, Seven Days

“His sonic world envelops, guiding the listener down surprising twists and passageways.” - Ray Padgett, County Tracks

“With his gorgeous melodies and mesmerizing voice, at first we were just kind of stunned into silence, which gave way to awe, which gave way to feelings. Lots of feelings. Including the overwhelming need to hear this song again and again.” - Quadio Media


Heart, humor, and humility are the keys to success for Fairfax, VT singer/songwriter Troy Millette. On the back of his witty onstage persona, imaginative covers, and heartfelt original songs, Millette has quickly earned a reputation as one of New England’s most promising up-and-comers. Whether performing solo, alongside violinist Dylan Gombas, or fronting the full-band project Troy Millette and the Fire Below, Millette brings a genuineness and sense of camaraderie to his live performances that is sure to entertain music-lovers of all kinds.

Since arriving on the local circuit in 2010 Millette has worked continuously to hone his craft, playing hundreds of shows across the Northeast United States and Canada with esteemed touring acts such as Grace Potter, Counting Crows, Richard Marx, Rick Springfield, American Authors, the Front Bottoms, Trey Anastasio (Phish), Mondo Cozmo, Pete Francis (of Dispatch), the Ghost of Paul Revere, Dawes, the Marcus King Band, Oh Honey (now known as lovelytheband), Lee DeWyze (American Idol winner), Noah Guthrie (of America’s Got Talent and the FOX television series ‘glee’), Scott Hellman, Will Evans and Barefoot Truth, Kat Wright, Madaila, Seth Yacovone, Gang of Thieves, 8084, Jamie Lee Thurston, and more.

Millette has been regarded as one of Vermont’s “Best Folk Artists” by Seven Days Magazine for the past three years.

In February of 2019, Millette released the long-awaited debut EP Living With A Ghost. Produced by Christopher Hawthorn, Ghost is a five-song collection that Seven Days says is “sure to strike a chord with fans of storytelling Americana troubadours such as [Jason] Isbell and the radio-friendly stylings of Kip Moore.”
