Roy Peak has played electric bass in more bands than he cares to remember for more years than he can remember. Some of these bands were Soul Guardians, Radio Berlin, The Problems, Reactor, Red Afternoon, Fish Out of Water, 86 Love, Xgeezer, and many more. He currently plays bass with Mark Williams and Blue Horse, and with the Robert Lester Folsom Band and fronts an acoustic punk rock band called Elvis Kabong! when time permits.

He wrote the theme song for the Utica, New York radio show Get Off My Lawn and recently released his debut album, titled All Is Well which is available at Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby.

Preferring old beat-to-death P-basses with flatwound strings tuned down a whole step, Roy's bass playing has been described as "orchestral and driving" and "Entwistle's style with Klaus Voormann's tone."

His solo material--where he puts down the bass and picks up his vintage Epiphone Texan--has been likened to Hamell on Trial, an angry Jonathan Richman, Paul Westerberg, and Neil Young. Live shows often showcase cover versions of songs by Liz Phair, Randy Newman, and The Minus 5.

Roy has helped design and build sound systems and equipment for numerous area churches, clubs and local sound companies as well as for Lucas Arts Films and Ringling Bros. Circus. If you've played on stage in any North Florida club or church in the past fifteen years you've probably used something Roy built.

Roy runs a recording studio which he runs out of his house. He has produced CDs for Lauren Fincham, Troy Lukkarila, Robert Lester Folsom, Terry Whitehead, and many more.

A selected discography can be found here.

Roy has written several book and CD reviews for various online publications--such as The King Tut Vintage Album And Cassette Museum Of Jacksonville, the Rocking Magpie, and Sacred Chickens.
