New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ AMP3 PR)
On Sunday, April 29th, New York City based singer-songwriter Dion Roy will officially release his latest full-length album, "Into The Day," on iTunes. After a sold-out show at Manhattan's live music venue Rockwood 2 on April 3rd, Dion has been invited back for an encore performance on the 29th which will double as his album release party.
Currently in the midst of a multi-city U.S./Canada tour, Dion is on the road with fellow musician Tyler Hilton, who also starred in the hit CW Television Network series "One Tree Hill," which just had its series finale earlier this month. The Spring
tour has included stops in 19 cities so far, including Philadelphia, PA (Tin Angel), Vienna, VA (Jammin' Java), Hamden, CT (The Space), and will continue on after the New York City show this Sunday to Chicago, IL (Beat Kitchen), Ann Arbor, MI (Blind Pig), Toronto, ON (Virgin Mobile
Mod), and Ottawa, ON (Mavericks) among others. A full tour schedule is included below.
During the tour, Dion Roy has been premiering tracks off his soon-to-be-released full length album "Into The Day," with songs that range from upbeat pop/rock anthems to heartfelt acoustic guitar ballads. Known for his unforgettable pop/rock hooks, Dion's upcoming album won't disappoint fans of the singer-songwriter's earlier work, which includes his debut album "Gallery
" (2009), his sophomore EP "The Nearest Light" (2010), which climbed to #8 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts, and his most recent EP "Welcome Home
"Into The Day" (April 29, 2012) is Dion Roy's first collaboration with David
Hodges, whose credits include working with Kelly
Clarkson and Evanescence. The Grammy award winning songwriter co-wrote "Counting the Days," a moving power ballad featured on the new album. The album also marks Dion Roy's second collaboration with notable producer Steven Miller who has previously worked with famous artists like David
Cook and Avril Lavigne. "Dion's songs are great and we got to explore some really exciting sonic places! I'm super proud of what we've created here," exclaims Miller.
Tyler Hilton, the tour's headlining act, is a skilled musician and actor, known for his emotionally resonant songs as well as his film and TV work, including the critically acclaimed Johnny Cash
biopic "Walk the Line" (2005) and the beloved TV drama "One Tree Hill" where his role as Chris Keller earned him two Teen Choice Award nominations. Tyler is also celebrating the official release of his new album "Forget the Storm" on this tour, and will be performing at the Rockwood Music
Hall show on Sunday.
The 2012 Spring
Tour will be the second time Dion Roy and Tyler Hilton hit the road together and promises to be their best tour yet, solidifying their place as the most exciting singer-songwriters on the indie music scene today.
