About Josh Roy
Josh Roy is an American country music recording artist, singer, and songwriter from Arizona. Josh really has a sound all his own, if you had to compare it, he’s a cross between Tracy Byrd and Luke Bryan, really a special voice. Her ability to write real songs from the heart and her passion and resilience are the things that will help her rise to the top. Although talent is a big factor, his down-to-earth attitude and love of country won the hearts of all his fans. Since he was little, he sings wherever he gets the chance. This carried over into his construction career at age 18, co-workers and other trades people would hear him singing songs on construction sites and keep asking him “why do you do construction?! !!” At 18, he started writing songs to get his feet wet. Josh’s writing style is based on 90s style country music with a modern twist to engage young listeners.
In 2013, Josh Roy started performing his first show at a local restaurant in Glendale, Arizona, which is where the road began! In 2014, Josh Roy performed on the Jack Daniels Stage at Country Thunder Florence by invitation. It fired him up and he put on an incredible show. Today, he opens on the main stage for Drew Cooper, Tracy Byrd and Tracy Lawrence, to name a few. His love for country music ran deep on both sides of his family, where many are musically inclined and love stories told in song.
