Today, one of Canada’s top up-and-coming artists, Brandon Howard Roy, will be premiering his new single “The Fear.” The track is from his highly anticipated new EP which is set to drop later in the year.
Produced by Colin Buchanan (Paper Lions / Sorrey / KINLEY) at The Hill Sound Studio in Roy’s hometown of Charlottetown PEI, “The Fear” is an indie pop gem that explores anxiety in all its forms. “Anyone working on their mental health knows it’s never a linear path, and some days my fears feel like these ghosts that control every part of me,” says Roy, “I wrote this song as a reminder that it’s ok to be scared sometimes, that growing up is hard, and that mistakes are gonna be made along the way.”
Originally from Montreal, Roy has always been involved in the arts, and his passion for the creative process has driven him to poetry, theatre, and (of course) music. After relocating to PEI in 2018, Roy found himself even more focused on music – and it was in 2019 that he fully dived in and had his first show, and released his stunning first single “Little Reasons.”
With word starting to spread, and with critics (and fans alike) being taken in my his pop charms – this is an artist (and a song) that you won’t want to miss.
