Troy Cassar-Daley shares his ‘way out of the darkness’
Acclaimed country musician Troy Cassar-Daley has released his first original album in five years, The World Today.
“It was a way out of the darkness of COVID for me,” Troy told Ray Hadley.
“I have to say, if it wasn’t for [Sony Music boss] Denis Handlin mate, I wouldn’t be sitting here.”
He explained that much of the record comes from an emotionally raw place, and draws on his family history as revealed to him on who do you think you are.
“The workload that I … put on myself, I didn’t even have time to write.
“What COVID did was break it down for me, and go you know what? It’s time to write a record.
