11 - The Uncle Roy Show

Genre: Country/ Blues/ Roots/ Rock/ R&B/ Latin
Location: Auburn, AL
Website: www.theuncleroyshow.com

Bio: Having rocked with such country greats as Little Jimmy Dickens, Freddie Fender, and Loretta Lynn, Uncle Roy is an eclectic songwriter just approaching his prime. Currently finishing up his third album, The Uncle Roy Show vol. 3: Mucho Gusto, this local legend is hard pressed for time. Between the interviews and paparazzi swarming around him at every public occasion, Uncle Roy says he has "little time to devote to songwriting". His new album is chock-full of Texas twang, old school R&B and Latin rhythms. The stories he tells are unmatched by his peers, he tells of barroom brawls, loves lost and the hard life. Songs like "The Power of Positive Drinking" and "The Twang Thang" are bright country numbers from his earlier albums.

New cuts, like "New Day" and "I'll Take You There" whisk you back to an older era of Peace & Love. Uncle Roy also has a commanding presence when taking the stage, inspiring awe in everyone who has a chance to enjoy his performance. He draws from a lifetime of experience when writing, and his songs are each unique yet complete. After years of playing around the world with many giants of Country music he now resides in Auburn performing shows whenever he can fit them in his busy schedule of writing and taking care of his family. Check out The Uncle Roy Show for the truth bout "Pretty Women, Soft Lights and Hard Country Music"
