Dion Roy is an emerging artist on the indie music scene, fusing his electroacoustic roots with his knack for writing an unforgettable hook. Born in Namibia, raised in South Africa, later raised in New Jersey and now a true New Yorker at heart, Dion 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 has graced the stage at all of the usual NYC suspects, including The Bitter End, the late Luna Lounge, Pianos and Kenny’s Castaways, and opened for high-profile acts like The Donnas, Bleu, and Ben Kweller, while touring throughout the North-Eastern College circuit. After years of flowing from one creative project to the next and keeping his collaborations and personal productions low key, this introspective and enigmatic musician has moved on from group bassist and fellow songwriter, to solo vocalist and front man, gearing up for his debut release — scheduled for May 2009. Today, Dion’s original music is a surprising combination of catchy pop hooks with brooding, raw emotionality. His songs draw upon personal experiences but speak to a greater audience about conflicting perspectives and desires. What distinguishes this young artist from others is his genuine lack of pretense and his guarded nature. He almost never reveals the backstories to his songs, encouraging his fans to find their own connection to the words. Dion Roy’s blend of genres has drawn comparisons to other singer/songwriters like Ryan Adams, Pete Yorn, and Damien Rice, and electronic bands such as Keane, Postal Service, and Snow Patrol. In his other life, Dion owns and manages a Manhattan-based PR firm with a specialization in music, and uses this day-to-day knowledge as fuel in the belief that with social media and the digital revolution of music, anyone with a passion and a unique talent now has the opportunity to share their music and succeed in this ever-changing industry.
