What’s in a song? A dash of creativity, a few fresh rhymes, and a full serving of heart are the recipe for success according to singer/songwriter Troy Millette, who alongside his band the Fire Below have gained recognition as one of the region’s most engaging live acts.
Since emerging on the local circuit in 2009, Millette’s emotive and relatable lyrics have made him a staple of dives, clubs, and festivals across the northeast United States and Quebec. In 2022, he was invited to showcase his talents at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. That same year, the Fire Below received the title of Vermont’s “Best Folk Group” at the Seven Daysies Awards.
In addition to hundreds of headlining shows, appearances at festivals like Grand Point North, and even a promotional run with Senator Bernie Sanders, Millette and company have shared bills with the likes of Counting Crows, LIVE, Grace Potter, Bowling for Soup, Trey Anastasio (of Phish), Richard Marx, Rick Springfield, the Front Bottoms, Marcus King Band, American Authors, Brett Dennen, Dawes, lovelytheband, and many more!
