Biography

Roy Moller was born in Edinburgh, grew up in Leith, has studied and worked and made music in Glasgow and now lives in Dunbar. While at Strathclyde University he was joint winner of the Keith Wright Poetry Competition. After graduating, Roy concentrated his creative endeavours on music, playing guitar in Peel favourites Meth O.D. and instrumental outfit The Wow Kafe, on whose debut single Who Will Apologise To The Emperor he featured on lead guitar. The NME gave the record a rave review, calling it “utterly ace”. Roy released his first solo single, Maximum Smile in 2003 on Hamburg label Felicite Singles Club. Further singles and the albums Speak When I’m Spoken To and Playing Songs No One’s Listening To garnered enthusiastic reviews as Roy’s reputation gradually grew.

“A week ago I’d never heard of him, now I’m his biggest fan,” enthused BBC 6Music’s Marc Riley as he gave Roy’s Byres Road Saturday one of several spins on his show. Roy has played IRiley sessions in his own right and as a member of Scottish supergroup Jesus, Baby! led by Davy Henderson. Roy was also part of psychedelic garage band The Store Keys, backing The Poets’ George Gallacher on his last single.

Of Moller’s 2012 album, The Singing’s Getting Better, the Daily Record said, “This is a beautiful, well crafted album that soars ever higher with joy at every play.” Receiving airplay from Riley and Gideon Coe, the album cemented Moller’s reputation as, in the words of Pennyblackmusic, “one of Scotland’s most original contemporary songwriters”.
