Dion Roy

About Dion Roy: Dion Roy is an emerging artist on the indie music scene, fusing his electro-acoustic roots with his knack for writing an unforgettable pop/rock hook.

Born in Namibia, raised in South Africa, later raised in New Jersey and now a true New Yorker at heart, Roy has lived and breathed the downtown Lower East Side music landscape for the past 9 years. Playing as a bassist in several bands over the years, Dion Roy has graced the stage at all of the usual NYC suspects, including The Bitter End, The Red Lion, Pianos, and Arctica Bar, and opened for high-profile acts like The Donnas, Bleu, and Ben Kweller, while touring throughout the North-Eastern College circuit.

This introspective and enigmatic musician has moved on from group bassist to solo vocalist and songwriter, with a debut CD (“Gallery”) released in Spring 2009. While Roy’s songs draw upon personal experiences (he calls the album “very personal”) they also speak to a greater audience about conflicting perspectives and desires. The ten-track album “Gallery” features songs whose themes include addictive love (“Come Back Around”) and failed relationships (“Wants It”), the betrayal brought on by a loved one’s substance abuse (“Orchid”), and the useless carnage of war (“Blind World”). The common thread throughout these diverse songs is Roy’s fresh combination of catchy pop hooks with brooding, raw emotionality.
