Dear friends, fans, and family!

I am in need of your help!  I am working on a new EP, music videos, and a September tour.
My main desire for doing this Fundraising is to Pay my collaborating Artist! Most of my other projects have only happened through the help of friends and people who believed in me. I felt with this project I needed (and wanted) to start giving back. I have worked with so much talent and creativity and it is time to start making sure each aspect of the album gets paid -from production, photos, videos, etc.


I'm very excited about this new project!  Been working with a new producer, Ryan Payne, at his recording studio in Round Rock, Tx  http://www.almajane.com/
and the flow of energy was instantanious and we went right into it.  He asked me from day one, do you want this to be "Fantasy" (which was the main character on my first EP www.youtube.com/staningly ). I said "No....I want these songs to come alive without any intentions or body, in mind."  I am so proud of what we have done so far. We played with a lot more instrumentation, although the ukulele still has a presence in this album, we also brought in Drums, guitar, bass, electronic beats, snaps, claps, keys, I even played the clown combs on the song "Weirdness"!  I will be posting sneak peaks of the work in progress as it comes along. 

I also have NEVER been on a tour!  It is crazy when I think about it.  I have always wanted to, but have always had my excuses or ties.  Now is the time.  I need to get this crazy OUT!  The Tour is planned for September and will stick more to the South.  More details as it comes together!
Thanks to everyone for all the help over the years.  My gratitude is endless.
xoxo
Stanley Roy

Hey everyone! It's been awhile :) I'm still here. So close to releasing the new EP that will be entitled "Show & Tell". Can't wait for you to here these new songs!
What's taking so long?!? you might be wondering. Well.... I am commissioning the beautiful painter Stephanie Jayne to paint an original piece of art for the cover art! I wanted to have another artist's vision on where I'm headed with these new songs, and I am already inspired by talking with her. We talked many hours about just about everything from sexuality to bunnies, and I couldn't be more happy with how it is coming to life. In the background of the painting she thought it would be nice to have my Grandma Brown's house in Palestine, TX. I always felt special and loved in that house, and felt a comfort so strong and stable from the past, seemed like the best symbolism to where I have come from. I am in the forefront of the painting with the past behind me, but still very much apart of it. Parts of "Fantasy" will be surrounding me, but I will be there as Stanley Roy--->Me looking straight ahead at what is to come.
This is exactly the reason I am doing this fundraising. To pay amazing artist to do amazing work, and inspire me through their inspired interpretations of my art!

The other announcement is bitter sweet. I overshot on my vision of a full fall tour, and will only be able to do a few shows here and there. I must have sent out hundreds of messages, but nothing has quite panned out. I am going to start booking small little adventures for the rest of the year...Savannah is high on the list as well as New York, and I will keep you posted on all the shows I end up doing. :) Then I will plan a bigger tour for Spring and This will give a greater amount of time for venues to get back to me, etc.
This is not to say I am by ANY means giving up! I am still booking shows as I go along. I just needed to be realistic. The money I raised is helping me get my EP produced, printed, and all the artwork, but I need to stay local for awhile- work, save money, and start planning a tour earlier.
That being said, I am very open to suggestions or leads/ connections for shows, festivals, etc. Also any help getting my music played on radio, podcasts and featured in magazines, blogs, and websites WOULD BE FABULOUS!
I promise to keep you all posted, as this process goes along.
Also, as soon as the EP is printed and pressed, I will start sending out the prizes :)
Thanks to all of you for helping me out!
All my love

Hello friends, fans, foes, and my fine-feathered peers,
Sending out an SOS! Still have a long way to go in the fundraising. I am happy to say, that what I have raised so far is covering the final production of the new EP recordings ;-). I will post sneak peeks soon. Still have big plans for at least 3 new music videos, and am already starting to Map out an Album release tour in the south! Please share with your friends, and donate what you can. Anything will help!
Xoxo
