NEW BROOKLYN-BASED BAND TAKES SOULFUL, GRITTY AMERICAN ROCK TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL The incredible group Roi and The Secret People Announce the Release of Their CD, Dog St. “Based out of Brooklyn, Roi and The Secret People stand up for what rock should be. This is truly a band that lightens your heart when you listen to them. From the southern blend of electric rock to their acoustic jams, this is music that any crowd could enjoy. Their new release, entitled "Dog St.", is a great mix of true rock from the first song to the last. Beautiful vocals, accompanied by soothing music in the background is always a good thing. Roi and The Secret People are already making a name for themselves in New York, and it's only a matter of time before they break out in the States.” —Metal Mark of, Target Audience Magazine (NEW YORK, NY)—Already featured on WRSU-FM in New Jersey and hailed by Rock N Roll Experience Magazine as “good, old school rock n roll,” Dog. St., the new CD from Roi and The Secret People, is garnering attention everywhere. Renowned for their hot, exciting live shows, Roi and the Secret People features the beautiful, mesmerizing voice of Mike Roi (formerly of Brother Grimm and Roi) and the highoctane slide guitar of Noel Rockwood (lead guitarist for the Snapdragons and The New Professionals). RSP have played such renowned clubs as Rockwood Music Hall and Arlene’s Grocery in New York City and The Tin Angel in Philly. Produced by LABATOMIX in NYC by Dose and Donny Rock of Shootyz Groove fame, the CD features artwork by award-winning illustrator and artist Tony DiTerlizzi, whose latest project is the blockbuster film, The Spiderwick Chronicles. From the stunning, haunting song, “Firefly,” to the balls-to-thewall sound of the title tune, “Dog St.” offers the best that American rock has to offer. Roi, who hails from southern Florida, has assembled a group of talented, experienced, like-minded musicians to create the vision of rock music he was raised with. As Roi so eloquently states, all he usually needs is a good bourbon a case of beer, a good smoke, and a guitar to create the kind of true-blue, sexy, and salt-of-the earth music that has captivated audiences in the tri-state area. Eclectic, diverse, and thoroughly original, RSP is a band that combines a classic rock vibe with a lyrical, wholly unique sound. “Roi and the Secret People have a great unique sound, a lot of talent and excellent production quality.”— Shinbone Magazine About the Band: Mike Roi grew up in Jupiter, South Florida and is now residing in Brooklyn, NY. Mike has been singing in bands since the age of 16 and has been pursuing his passion for the kind of soulful music he grew up with ever since. He has opened for such renowned acts as The Black Crowes, Midnight Oil, and Marilyn Manson. After releasing records out of Florida with Brother Grimm (TALES, Cabana Colony), then with his band Roi out of Philadelphia (Intergalactic Rodeo), Mike formed RSP. Noel Rockwood. A New York City native, Noel formed the band The Snapdragons in 1989. The Snapdragons were a power trio out of Athens, Ohio. Signed with Atlantic Records in 1991, they released a self-titled album that year which climbed the college radio charts and received much critical acclaim. They toured the United States, opening for Soul Asylum, The Dead Milkmen, and Superchunk. Noel returned to NYC in 1993. Since then, he has played in such groups as Shiny Mama and The New Professionals. David Leatherwood has performed as a singer-songwriter, guitarist and bassist with dozens of stylistically diverse bands and artists since settling in NYC. Completing several national tours and opening for such acts as Sting, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Aerosmith and Fuel, David has also toured in the UK and throughout Europe (Bosnia, Kosovo, Austria, Iceland) with the USO. Leatherwood has performed and recorded with such major label acts as Mach Five (Island) and Star 69 (Hollywood), such nationally distributed indie bands as Puracane (Ubiquity), The Patti Rothberg Band (Cropduster) and Evil Jake (Evil), and with his own acousticpop duo 2 (Albertine)—who recorded with legendary producer Tom Dowd (Aretha Franklin, Allman Brothers, Rod Stewart), and whose single peaked at 14 on the Billboard/AC chart.
