In 1982, the founders of Reunion Records decided to create their own record label launching the musical career of this Italian girl from New York. That initial project included her first radio hit Stubborn Love, propelling a career that has spanned over 30 years.
Kathy Troccoli has come a long way since her musical debut. Whether belting out a big band tune, crooning her velvet voice on a jazz standard or tenderly singing a hymn – her talent is unique, powerful and filled with warmth. The penetrating songs, arresting transparency, candid personal reflections, engaging stories and childlike humor have allowed her the longevity few have had the opportunity to experience.
Kathy’s numerous accolades include 24 recordings, 18 number-one radio hits, 19 Dove Award nominations, 2 Dove Awards, and 3 Grammy nominations. Her newest CD, Better Days is a groundbreaking project that was fully produced and co-written by Kathy. She is also a gifted songwriter as well as author. In addition to her success in Christian music she has made quite an impact in the mainstream arena as well, scoring a #1 hit with Everything Changes as well as a top 10 single with the iconicBeach Boys, entitled I Can Hear Music.
From serving on the mission fields of Africa, India and Central America to performing before millions to hosting 16 years of rejuvenating and relaxing cruises – Kathy enjoys all aspects of using her gifts to entertain as well as embolden the spirit.
Kathy Troccoli has become her own brand. Quite the adventurer – she is currently hosting her own events called Among Friends® – where she not only sings, but also speaks and acts as well. Her engagements contain candid personal reflections, heartfelt sharing, and deep insights. She bears scars that have produced a powerful and insightful communicator. These things have only led to her moving into the gift market – where she has launched Life-Giving™ Art – combining warm and inspiring sentiments with masterful photography. With her keen eye for beauty and design, many other items are on the horizon in this field – including jewelry, cards and more.
