Vocalist. Song Writer. Musician. Spirit.
Greg Roy is best known for his fiery stage presence and uplifting, poetic performance style. Originating from Montego Bay, Jamaica, Greg Roy has been capturing audiences through his creation and delivery of roots reggae and dancehall music for decades.
With years of recording and performance experience, Greg Roy celebrated the third release of his original music in November 2019, entitled TOMORROW. This collection is his first to be distributed by the historic Tuff Gong International. Prior releases have included 2018’s Ooh La La and 2015’s Moving On. His soulful and poetic content are a fitting match for the diverse collection of international producers that he works with.
With acoustic guitar in hand, Greg Roy has been performing roots reggae and dance hall music throughout the United States and Jamaica since the late 90’s. In 2016, as the Lead Vocalist for the acclaimed Duppy Conquerors, he had the opportunity to work with veteran musicians to deliver 80+ Bob Marley originals, and to share his performance techniques with the larger Boston and New England music scene. He left the group in early 2019 to launch a summer tour of his original work and to focus on the development of The Greg Roy Music Experience.
Nominated in 2019 for International Artist of the Year by the Boston Music Awards, Greg Roy continues to bring his charisma and positive energy to audiences everywhere. Currently, he and The Greg Roy Music Experience maintain a weekly residency at Boston’s Fenway Johnnie’s. Sharing a bevy of originals and classic covers, they engage audiences of all ages with fun and love, every Sunday.
Additional notable venues have included Hard Rock Cafe Boston, MGM Casino Springfield, University of New Hampshire, Spire Center for Performing Arts, Rock and Roll Playhouse, Cambridge’s Middle East, The Chicken Box, The Reggae Takeova at La Fabrica, House of Blues Boston, Wormtown Festival, Electric Haze, The Boston Jerk Fest, Cambridge's Reggae in the Park and Sugar Loaf Mountain Resort.
