New York, NY (Vocus) June 25, 2010
Currently sitting at number 9, Dion Roy’s new EP, “The Nearest Light,” which released yesterday (June 23) has cracked the Top 10 on iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart—a huge feat for any independent artist.
An instant success, the new album was also just licensed for the upcoming seasons of MTV’s “The Real World” and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” on E!. The EP, which was produced by Dion Roy and Peter Roessler, was mixed by Scott Reibling, of Weezer, Cobra Starship and Fallout Boy fame.
In celebration of the release, Dion performed last night to a sold out show at The Living Room in New York’s infamous Lower East Side. It was 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 any day now.
“The Nearest Light” is available for purchase on iTunes (here) for $3.96.
