Roy's vocal range would probably be described as a high baritone. His range is from E2 to A4 in normal voice and up to E5 in falsetto.

Roy is currently working on a solo music project which he is hoping to release as a single, with an accompanying music video. The song, entitled "Everybody Changes", which Roy has composed and co-produced himself, is about the fragility of certain friendships. He is also working on releasing a single with his old band Vacant Joy, for which he toplined the lyrics and melody. The song, entitled "Dark Hours" is about Elizabeth Clarke, the first lady to fall victim to the Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkins, whose career in witch-hunting flourished during the English Civil War.

In addition to this, Roy currently sings in an 80s-themed functions band called 80mph, doing songs from the decade such as "Gold" by Spandau Ballet, "The Look of Love" by ABC, "Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds, plus many many more. The band have around 50 potential 80s songs in their repertoire.

Roy has been the lead singer/songwriter in several originals bands - Otiks, Selftonic and Vacant Joy.

Otiks released two singles which are available on Spotify - "Deadlights", which was played on BBC radio and drew inspiration from Stephen King's novel "IT", and one called "Low Profile", about the perils of dating. Both of these featured on Otiks' last release which was an EP entitled "Contrast".

The video for "Low Profile" can be seen in the link above.
