Troy Mitchell Interview

Today's program features the music of Troy Mitchell.

Troy brings a fresh and authentic voice to Messianic Judaism. His original songs draw from the Gospels, the Hebrew of the Tanach, the Midrash, synagogue prayers, and first-century liturgy. They even utilize the Greek of the Apostolic Scriptures to bring a fusion of Chassidic joy, gospel hope, jazz, acoustic soul food and soulish prayer focused on the light of Messiah. Troy's  ability to almost become one with the music comes from leading and/or playing with worship bands since the early '90s. He has been challenged by blindness most of his life and has used music as a way to connect with Hashem and other people. His love for the Psalms, liturgy, the words of Yeshua and his involvement in the synagogue has given the movement unique melodies. Even more than that, it has instilled in him a passion for seeing everyone have a chance to draw closer to HaShem through music and prayer.

Before Troy became Messianic, he was a music minister at an Assembly of God church.  He currently does the music for the contemporary service at a Messianic synagogue called Beth Immanuel in Hudson Wisconsin. Troy has two albums out currently. The first album is called "Yoke of the King" and the newest one is called "Light of the World."
