This different perspective is where his new song titled, “Troops” came from. “Troops” was written and mixed by Triston. When he was younger he would sit on his grandpa’s lap, and his grandpa would tell him stories of the war he was in. He flew a B29 in World War II. Triston’s dad is in the Air National Guard, plus other family and friends in the military. He also produced a video for his new song, this was a way for him to give back to our country and military families that have suffered from loss. It is a message to all of those who has been a victim of war. It was a very exciting and rewarding project for Triston.
