James Roy's music has a complexity of sound about it that is similar to a lot of popular electronica music out there today. But what separates his music from the ambiguity of all those synthesized songs where you are like, "I love that song, who sings it?" (to which you receive silence or a shrug as a response) are his strong vocals and lyrical composition. His melodies are memorable and catchy. His vocal style has an original sound that conveys emotion readily to the listener.
His music is hard to categorize exactly as different songs have different emotional effects upon the listener. Some are dance songs which clearly make you want to get your groove on, some are pop-style and great for local radio stations and a general population, and others are more thought provoking and only if listened to multiple times can one fully appreciate the complexity of his message. His compositions follow his experiences, each with a new feel and a new understanding.
James Roy is new to the world of composing, having written his first song in March of 2003. With a BS in Electrical Engineering, he has a deep understanding of technology and makes his living in Denver, CO as a digital design engineer. As he becomes more familiar with his tools and techniques, his songs become more refined and gain a new sophistication while carrying the same original feel. He approaches each composition as a new learning experience and hopes to continue his musical path into a full album release.
