Rural Rhythm Records Signs The Roys

by | 20 Nov, 2010

Rural Rhythm Records has announced their signing of The Roys (Lee and Elaine) to their label and will release a new album in March 2011.

This brother/sister duo hails from Fitchburg, MA, and their music is a surprisingly fresh, bluegrass sound that includes hints of roots and traditional country. The two-time Inspirational Country Music Duo of the Year (2010, 2009) made their national television debut on the most-recent Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon in Las Vegas, and they’ve enjoyed heavy media exposure with multiple People and Country Weekly magazine features to their credit. The Roys have performed before President George W. Bush at Andrews Air Force Base; traveled to Bogota, Columbia on an outreach mission for Compassion International, and entertained fans for years at clubs, fairs and festivals.

We are thrilled. The Roys are a perfect fit for our Rural Rhythm family. Lee and Elaine have a true love and respect for Bluegrass music and its traditions, alongside a deep appreciation for traditional Country and a strong faith that will help Rural Rhythm to expand their musical boundaries. We can’t wait for Bluegrass lovers to experience The Roys and their band live – President, Sam Passamano, Jr.

Lee and Elaine are reported to be overjoyed at joining Rural Rhythm Records, with other bluegrass favorites Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Lonesome River Band, Bobby Osborne, Grasstowne, Michael Martin Murphey, Lou Reid, Rodney Dillard, Carrie Hassler, Blue Moon Rising, Audie Blaylock, Bill Emerson, Randy Kohrs and many more.

Rural Rhythm has a great reputation and we are honored that they believe in our music and believe in who we are as artists – Lee Roy.
We are extremely blessed to be joining their roster – Elaine Roy.
