Here is some background on Roy for you:
ROY BOOK BINDER, is a Blues Singing, guitar picking, song writing raconteur, and has been for the past 30 years! They say that the stories are as good as the songs, and appearances as a "featured teller" at THE NATIONAL STORYTELLING FESTIVAL in Jonesborough, Tn. attest to that! The SYDNEY MORNING HERALD said, "behind the humor lurks a musical master." "With his laid-back vocals and strong guitar playing, ROY BOOK BINDER sometimes evokes J.J. Cale or Dire Straits´ early acoustic songs. But Book Binder´s inspirations go way back. Having worked closely in the ´60s with blues masters Rev. Gary Davis and Pink Anderson, and having toured constantly for decades, BOOK BINDER is a seasoned, mature bluesman with a sound of his own. He is a genuine example of the traveling bluesman tradition that began in the ´20s, was revived in the ´60s and continues today" (Living Blues Magazine). Along with his mentors, you can read about ´The Book´ in such volumes as The Big Book of Blues, The Blues Who´s Who and The Rolling Stone´s guide to Blues and Jazz albums.
BOOK BINDER has been interviewed by Terry Gross on NPR´s FRESH AIR, has appeared on TNN´s Nashville Now show more than 30 times, and was recently featured on the PBS television show EGG (Arts in America). He can be heard on Rounder Records, Flying Fish Records, Blue Goose Records, Adelphi Records and his own label, PegLeg Records.
