Working from his bedroom studio, Javelona’s hands-on approach to creating this EP has allowed him to infuse a deeply personal touch into every track. “Creating this EP from my bedroom has allowed me to authentically explore my experiences and emotions. The bedroom is my safe space where I can truly be myself,” Troy shared.

A Rising Star in the Alt-R&B Scene

Despite having debuted only last year, Troy Javelona is rapidly establishing his place in the alternative R&B scene. Originally from London, Javelona relocated to the coastal town of Plymouth, bringing with him a rich musical heritage. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Tom Misch, Dominic Fyke, Steve Lacey, and alt-R&B legend Daniel Caesar, Javelona’s fresh take on alt-R&B traditions has been making waves across the indie scene globally.

His breakthrough came with the viral TikTok video featuring “Go Away”, a track from his debut EP Love, which has garnered over 2 million views. This viral success has earned Javelona a dedicated following, demonstrating the power of social media in unearthing and promoting great music.

A Personal and Authentic Touch

Following his initial success, Javelona has released a series of singles under his self-described ‘loverboy-indie’ genre. As an independent artist, he writes, records, and produces all his music from his bedroom, ensuring each track is imbued with authenticity and personal flair. Characterized by intricate rhythms and emotive melodies, his music resonates with listeners worldwide, with the highest number of monthly listeners hailing from the US and Bangkok.

Troy Javelona’s new EP For You is more than just a collection of songs; it’s a heartfelt journey through the landscape of love, crafted with care and passion from his own personal space.
