This single “Keeping Me Alive” was the first song he wrote with his new collaborators, Brian Howes (Mother Mother / Boys Like Girls) and Jay Van Poederooyen (Faber Drive / Airbourne), and it sums up his restorative experience perfectly. The honesty, the propelling beat – all confirm that Roy is now in a state where he is constantly pushing himself forward and trying to better his craft. It showcases his strength as a solo artist and how far he’s grown in his musical career.
“I would say that this entire experience has cemented my faith in music. The healing power of it, and the need for me to do this my entire life. There is nothing else I want, or would be able to do now.”
