Roy Catlin brings a new feel to a classic genre. Lush with beautiful acoustic guitar work, addicting vocal melodies, and a deep rooted progressive folk sound. Hailing from Colorado, singer-songwriter Catlin began writing for his solo project in early 2013 after playing with several progressive rock and metal bands. After some time, Roy realized he was being driven more by the songs he had been writing on his own. The songs were more personal, and real for him. In 2014, he decided this was where he needed to be as an artist and started focusing on his project full time. A year later, his debut album "From Being Lost" was born.
Drawing influences from the likes of John Frusciante and Elliot Smith, Roy has managed to construct a sound that not only pays homage to his predecessors but stands on its own. The essence of Roys music is beautiful melodies and honest and thought provoking lyricism.
In 2018, Roy released several new and diverse tracks such as “Anxiety” and “The Warrior.” Roy has shown his versatility as an artist, while also maintaining his roots. His captivating live looping performances have been enjoyed by audiences all over Colorado and various parts of the Western United States.
With 2019’s arrival, Roy is planning to reach more people with his music than ever before. With extensive tours on the horizon, and a new full length album in the works, 2019 is shaping up to be his most prolific work year to date.
