The “oh, darling [REMIX INSTRUMENTAL]” was masterfully crafted by our Portland-dwelling friend, Troy Welstad, who is a creative force to be reckoned with! He ABSOLUTELY SLAYED this remix and we are SO THANKFUL!
As a twenty-something in Los Angeles Troy Welstad proved his skill and versatility as a musician, keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist touring the world with the likes of P!nk, Hilary Duff, A Fine Frenzy, Brooke Fraser, Ryan Cabrea and working with many other artists. Troy has backed artists on multiple television appearances including the American Music Awards, MTV music awards, Conan O’Brian Show, The Tonight Show, Ellen, Good Morning America and many more.
