RMG Amplify is proud to announce its newest signee is the multi-talented Roy Tosh, an artist who held out on many label offers because he didn’t feel at peace, but now says he has found a partnership he believes in.
“I love what they do,” Roy shares of being a fan, watching RMG rise in CHH and now joining the team. “I love the heartbeat behind the label.”
Roy had several mutual connections with RMG before meeting CEO Doc Watson at FlavorFest a few years ago. Roy is good friends with RMG’s Deraj, who first suggested looking into the Amplify services. Now the dotted line is signed.
“Roy has always been a guy that I was hoping to work with,” Doc says. “This record is going to be so much fun for us to work, we are already seeing results.”
The Orlando-based rapper, husband and father is preparing the release of his new album, Above the Water, inspired by a tough year where he almost lost his father. The emotional roller coaster gave Roy and his family the opportunity to live out the Biblical narrative of Peter walking on the water toward Jesus. The melodic music is an uplifting reminder to keep perspective even in life’s fiercest storms.
“Ultimately if we fix the eyes of our heart on Him,” Roy explains, “He is reaching out His hand to us to help us rise above the water.”
Above the Water will be another release through RMG Amplify and Roy’s CFI Ministries, his non-profit organization where he lives by the motto “Just One More” to portray the permeation of his music touching listeners with love one by one.
Roy’s own platform has steadily risen after rebranding himself as Roy Tosh in 2014 under the guidance of Benjah and Andy Mineo. Benjah has served a continued role as a mentor to Roy and the new RMG Amplify signee says he could go on and on about the impact the friendship has had on him, but what he learned most was the importance of the business side of the industry as well as “excellence in music that can go toe to toe with what the world has to offer.”
