Youth inspirational speaker, Troy Payne, knows that music is the most powerful form of storytelling that we have. That is why he collaborates with three high school students in writing and performing music with a message. Their band ‘Aside from Sorrow’ creates songs that depict the struggles of adolescence and that inspire hope. They recognize the adversities that we are all faced with but focus on overcoming those adversities and finding resiliency. Aside from Sorrow consists of; Jared Berg on bass, Reaghan Wiltse playing lead guitar, Mark Lawlor on drums and Troy Payne with vocals and rhythm guitar.
