“Who would have thought that a Jamaican-born singer living in Tel Aviv would be responsible for saving soul music in the United States?”

Roy Young is one of the great vocal talents of our time. Roy's warm, fatherly voice comforts me in my confusion, shouts out my own fears, and shines light of hope with a beacon of falsetto that leads me trembling to the home of a friend. What follows is a personal journey, in the old style, song by song…Great things are not created overnight. Like the finest wine that has fermented for a very long time, such is music phenomenon, Roy Young. The timing of his arrival is divine, as we have lost so many great ones and are in need of a new musical champion. With his vintage soul stylings incomparable to any other, Roy Young brings comfort to the restless spirit that lies within us – and for those spirits who are dormant -- or just numb from life's challenges, Roy brings a resurrection that reminds you to jump back in and appreciate life.

That explains both the thundering jabs in his sparkling runs and the sleekness in his writing and arranging" -Time Out NY.
