The story of a friend: Roy Peplow

I spend a lot of time promoting myself and others, trying to make new friends and contacts in the music scene. A lot of people has inspired me and one fellow artist deserves some extra credit for his dedication and originality. And I think we all can be inspired by his work.
 
In the beginning of may I got a PM from Roy Peplow introducing himself and asking for a small favor. A photo with a greeting for his project “Roy Peplow going global”. I was naturally amazed by the idea but since I had so much to do it sort of slipped my mind. But dedicated as he is he reminded me not once, but several time. So I sent him a photo and he made a nice collage. And he actually has manage to collect greetings from all over the world. I really recommend you to check them out at his website.
With such a hype he really stuck him self out there and he had a lot to live up to when he finally released his single “Going Global”. But in spite of the huge expectations I wasn’t disappointing. The song is amazing, a really great modern alternative rock tune, with just the right amount of polish without being over produced.
 
The rest of the EP is also good and well worth a listening, but the title song really sticks out and made it right on to #KEEPOUTOFTHEMAINSTREAM and I guess it has a good shot of being on my top list for 2017 in the end of the year.

 So go check him out, enjoy the music and get inspired!
