Many of us have been lost in our lives and some more than once. It’s a terrifying thing to encounter and some of us have to go through it alone. The feeling of emptiness, confusion and not knowing what road to take really takes a toll on you. Everything seems to be falling apart around you and the walls that kept you safe are crumbling down. I wrote this song about a friend of mine who I helped get into rehab. I couldn’t let him keep going down the dark road he was on so I had to call an intervention. I had no idea how he would take it and was afraid of losing my friendship. That night turned out to be one of of the most important and life-changing moments of both our lives.
You can insert your own life story into these words. This is for anyone who’s lost and for the ones that have helped others find their way.

Jonathan Roy knows something about drawing inspiration from all the things that surround him. The universal, the unique, and sometimes the downright random – manifests itself within his process, and gathering from his myriad travels and connections – he has created something that is both familial and engaging. His new tunes are a stunning collection of songs that traverse borders and genres. “It took me leaving my comfort zone, buying (and living) in a van to find myself again” he laughs. “My songs reflect that – and reflect that recharge that I needed. Not only in my artistic life, but in my personal life as well.” It was then that he decided to take a chance and left his home province of Quebec for the sunny shores of Malibu, California. The beach provided solace, a new outlet, and new innovative partners with whom he began writing songs. His new single “Keeping Me Alive” was the first song he wrote with his new collaborators, Brian Howes (Mother Mother / Boys Like Girls) and Jay Van Poederooyen (Faber Drive / Airbourne), and it sums up his restorative experience perfectly. The honesty, the propelling beat – all confirm that Roy is now in a state where he is constantly pushing himself forward and trying to better his craft. It showcases his strength as a solo artist and how far he’s grown in his musical career. “I would say that this entire experience has cemented my faith in music. The healing power of it, and the need for me to do this my entire life. There is nothing else I want more.” Back home in Canada, Roy is gearing up for the release of his new music, and excitement that comes with it. “I can’t wait to hear what my fans think of the transformation, and I can’t wait to meet the new folks that will be drawn in by the music and the message,” he says. With his unquestionable talent, and incredible showmanship – he has gained the attention of music lovers and the music industry alike. With “Keeping Me Alive” he continues to build upon all that buzz. “For me, I like a challenge and pushing myself out of my comfort zone and exploring new areas,“ he says. “I think what I’ve created here is 100% true to me and absolutely something I can’t wait to share with the world.” Roy has revealed himself musically, so what will his fans and music lovers think of his new vibe?
