New York, NY (Vocus) June 24, 2010
Today, Singer/Songwriter, Dion Roy, released his latest EP, “The Nearest Light,” a 4-track follow-up album to his debut 10-track release, “Gallery” (June, 2009).
An instant success, the new album debuted this morning at number 16 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Albums chart. The EP, which was produced by Dion Roy and Peter Roessler, was mixed by Scott Reibling, of Weezer, Cobra Starship and Fallout Boy fame. “The Nearest Light” has also been licensed for the upcoming seasons of MTV’s “The Real World” and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” on E!.
In celebration of the release, Dion will be performing tonight at The Living Room in New York’s infamous Lower East Side. It will be a full band performance featuring Peter Roessler (guitar), Ed Marshall (bass), and special guest, Boots Factor, of Stephen Kellogg and The Sixers (drums).
Already an exciting 2010 for Dion, the release of the EP follows his recent appearances on The Howard Stern Show, his SXSW Showcase in Austin, his NYC Harbour Cruise with Ryan Cabrera, and his opening slot with Eve 6 in Flint, Michigan. Details for a full summer U.S. tour in July and August are expected to be announced shortly.
