Troup is an American-based rock band with classic rock influences founded in 2012. [1]

Classic rock is a radio format which developed from the album-oriented rock (AOR) format in the early 1980s. In the United States, the classic rock format features music ranging generally from the mid-1960s to the late 1980s, primarily focusing on commercially successful hard rock popularized in the 1970s. The radio format became increasingly popular with the baby boomer demographic by the end of the 1990s.

Founding member Alex Troup played with British rock band Crashland. [2] After moving to Los Angeles, he met fellow member Evan Beigel (Producer/Keyboard) while browsing at Amoeba Music. [3] The rest of the band includes Claudio Tristano (Guitar), James Jannetty (Bass), and Graham Roby (Drums). [4]

Crashland were a British indie band signed to the Independiente record label.
