  • New single JW Roy & The Royal Family

    Today, the Dutch americana singer JW Roy released his new single Keep It Simple (feat. Lea Kliphuis). Keep It Simple is the first track of the forthcoming album that will be released next November. 

    JW Roy did write the song with the Dutch singer Lea Kliphuis. About Keep It Simple he says: “Twenty years ago I released my first record. Ever since I roam the roads and cities of the world, playing every venue and try to write with a lot of friends. All of a sudden you realize you feel really fortunate to have the opportunity to do so. And things now are stille the same as years ago. In life and in music.”
    Keep It Simple has been recorded at the Beerze Brewery in The Netherlands. Here JW Roy and his band The Royal Family have build a semi permanent studio where they can work on new songs every moment of the day. In the video, directed and filmed by Martijn Kuijten, you’ll witness the recording sessions of Keep It Simple.

    New album at Royal Family Records
    Keep It Simple is the first track of the forthcoming album A Room Full Of Strangers which will be released by the end of November 2017. Exactly 20 years before JW Roy’s debut album ‘Round Here was released.
    Keep It Simple will be released at Royal Family Records, JW’s own record label.

    Keep It Simple is now available on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming services and for sale at iTunes and Google Play.
