Johan Troch; born June 16, 1966, started in 1983 with Last Journey as a singer-guitar player. They were strongly influenced by the music and spirit of Joy Division and Cocteau Twins, that also influenced a lot of bands in Europe during the “Cold Wave” scene in the early eighties. But still they managed to create their own identity. Last Journey had a quite difficult existance, so it resulted with only one single on a compilation album, released in 1985. They were support-acts for several New-Wave and Rock bands who were hot during the mid-eighties. In ’86 the band split up, and after two sabbatical years, he began writing songs again to go further on his own. This far he released one song album on iTunes/Bandcamp and a handful of singles. And also four instrumental albums, only in digital form. Johan Troch has his own digital download label Adagio Productions. Troch also did some contributions to ballet-dancers and dance-groups with music on their videos. He usually work alone, but Last Journey drummer Ivan Heyninck did some productions in the past. In 2013 he worked together with composer/producer Peter Every from Coventry. In that same year he also contrubuted on Pieter Nooten’s album ‘Haven’. For his latest album ‘The Enlightened’ he appealed to the collaboration of Eric Hopton, Steve Dillard and Tom O’Bedlam.
