Lead Vocals and Rhythm Guitar
Trojan's founder and lead vocalist Simon Hageman is one the region's most experienced and versatile performers. His vocal range is incredible and is equally at home belting out a new pop tune as with crooning his way through a big band number.
Not only the lead singer, he is also the band's rhythm guitarist. His acoustic guitar playing is a very important ingredient in the Trojan sound.
Drums and Vocals
A Sonor endorsee, a regular performer at Drum Mania and a top notch drum teacher in very high demand, Brad Dawson is Trojan's percussion extrodinare and vocalist. Not only can he play drums lines with precision and flare, he can do this while giving an amazing vocal performance every gig!
He has studied with some of the country's top players including Gerry Pantazis and Darryn Farrugia. Brad's amazing feel and technique can be heard in every song... come to a Trojan gig and feel it for yourself!
Bass Guitar and Vocals
Often described as the smoothest player around, Paul's bass lines and incredible voice are the backbone of Trojan's sound. A true multi-instrumentalist (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards... the list goes on!), Paul's musical knowledge is second to none.
Paul's rich vocals, amazing feel and phrasing is rarely a combination found in one musician. FDM.
Lead Guitar and Vocals
Also known as 'The Shredder', Christian's command of the electric guitar is incredible. From blues heavy lead lines full of emotion to Van Halen style finger tapping and beyond, he's go it covered.
Christian brings his strong vocals to the mix and completes the bands signature four part harmonies.
