Roy Pearce / Bio

Artist Bio

This album is dedicated to Roy Pearce's father who passed away April 12th, 2011. {Theodore Roy Pearce}
Roy Pearce was born and raised in the Beaumont Texas area. He started music classes at the age of 11.?
At the age of 13 he was playing the trumpet in the orchestra band. He also played the french horn and the
barritone. At the age of 16 he was taking drum lessons. At the age of 18 he started playing the guitar, but
he is self taught. He did, however sing in a few bands when he was out of high school, but never played the cicuits.
In 1980 he moved to Dallas and a few years later, started playing bass guitar. He played in some rock bands?
and some heavy metal bands for a while but there was no satisfaction in it. In 2001 just before 911, he was saved
by a spirit of our lord and began to write gospel music. He was offered a chance to play for a jewish messianic
congregation called Baruch Ha Shem, in Dallas Texas. He played on the worship team for 3 to 4 years there. He
also played on 2 albums for this congregation. He felt the spirit was leading him to do something else so he began
to write his own music while playing in a prison ministry band called Grace Descending. In this band is Kenny Belcher,
a long time friend who co-wrote a lot of the music with him, and who also was saved by grace. Roy figured out that
his roots were always country, so he decided to return to it. His influeces range from Hank Williams to Bob Seger.
Grand Funk and Bad Company were also some of his favorites, but if you asked him now of his favorite band
it would be Casting Crowns. But his biggest influence of all is his brother, singer, songwriter, Ted Pearce. When Roy
and Ted were young children they would sing Everly Brothers and The Beatles together. He hopes that one day
they can do it together again. We hope you enjoy the southern style of gospel music.
