Kevin Roy is a wilderness loving Alt-Country Troubadour from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He delivers poignant folk ballads, wry wit toe-tappers, and barn-burners with the right balance of aw-shucks honesty and unbridled enthusiasm. Kevin Roy is classic Country & Roots through brand new speakers!
His debut LP, the acclaimed Heartworn Highways, reached #1 on the National monthly !Earshot folk/roots/blues charts. The single, "The Mighty River", reached #10 most played songs on Stingray Music's Folk/Roots channel. Since the music video release this past spring, Kevin donates all song sales from 'The Mighty River', a song about the hardships of flooding, to the Canadian Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.

BELOW THE SURFACE
Four years ago Kevin Roy left a fulltime career as a High School Woodshop, Cooking, and Art Teacher to pursue a career as a fulltime musician. Since trading in students wielding saws, knives, and paintbrushes, he has logged over 400 shows across the country from Tofino to Inuvik to Halifax.
Aside from his music, Kevin Roy is an avid fisherman and photographer. He never tours without his fishing gear and Nikon full frame camera. He is always looking to steal a moment on the water, or capture it through the lens, connecting himself and his fans with the wilderness.
