Brandon Howard Roy at LIVE! on Elgin with special guests Emma Lamontagne & James Leclaire
Brandon Howard Roy:
With his debut album Tough Stuff having recently been nominated for Pop Recording of the Year at the 2022 East Coast Music Awards (ECMAs) and numerous Music PEI Award nominations including New Artist of the Year (2021) and Solo Recording of the Year (2022) Brandon Howard Roy is a Queer singer songwriter taking the East Coast music scene by storm. Backed by an all star band, his indie-pop sound is fun and groovy sung with a voice that reaches the stratosphere. With an electric stage presence, catchy hooks and relatable lyrics, his debut album called Tough Stuff is making a big splash in the Island music scene and beyond.
At a statuesque six-foot-one, itʼs hard not to notice Ottawa singer-songwriter, Emma Lamontagne. Currently focused on contemporary pop, she is most noted for her emotional live performances, receiving recognition from Linda Perry, John Mellencamp, Alan Frew, and others. Previously the 2016 winner of the RBC Bluesfest “She’s the One” competition, she is fresh off the cycle of her 2019 FACTOR-funded debut album and is ready to set her sights on what’s next. She is currently setting her sights on songwriting for other artists and advocating for other immuno-compromised people while the pandemic continues.
From fist pumping, stomp your feet working-man anthems to soulful ballads of love, heartache and loss, James' songs are all about storytelling. Intensely thought-out lyrics grind through James' raspy vocal chords with powerful emotion to produce rich, dark imagery, that will punch you in the heart.
