Roy Schenkenberger was born and bred in the Beach Cities of Southern California but his artistic roots stretch further South.  Artists such as James Taylor, John Denver, and Jim Croce left heavy footprints in the concrete of his musical grey-matter; their influences draw out hints and inflections of songs written in wider open places. 

 In recent years, Roy's songs have showed up in surf films, been heard above 30,000 feet on American Airlines, and even been translated into Chinese.
