Spotlight: Dion Roy

Dion Roy loves tacos.
It's true, he can't hide it.

What's also true is that he's a great singer / songwriter / all around musician and generally cool guy.

Here's his bio from NoiseTrade:
Dion Roy is a singer-songwriter known for fusing his songwriter roots with his knack for writing an unforgettable pop/rock hook. Born in South Africa, and now a New Yorker, Dion got his start playing as a bassist in several bands on the Lower East Side music scene, and recently emerged as a solo artist. Dion has toured with high-profile acts like Tyler Hilton, Josiah Leming, Eve 6, Ryan Cabrera, The Donnas, Bleu, and Ben Kweller, throughout the North-Eastern College circuit. His debut album Gallery was released in 2009, followed by The Nearest Light (EP, June 2010) and his latest EP Welcome Home, which was released in April 2011. On “Welcome Home,” Dion worked. The first single, “Leave Me Out of This” features Josiah Leming (American Idol) on piano. For fans of: Pete Yorn, Snow Patrol, Keane, Tyler Hilton, Jeff Buckley.

To download his FREE NoiseTrade Sampler, click on the picture of the album above.  You won't be disappointed!   Dion is off to LA this weekend to finish off his next album, so keep an ear out for that one.  I'm working on convincing Dion to come back to Boston, if only to just go out for tacos... Mmm. Tacos.
