Roy Ivy is a long, tall Texan who's lived a lot of lives and just refuses to die. In 1990, he was a teenage country music DJ spinning the good stuff. Ten years later, he stumbled into a 25-piece orchestral rock group called The Polyphonic Spree and toured the world. Bad luck dragged him to Chicago for the next decade, where he sold Shamwows, churned copy for a coupon factory, and reviewed movies for Consequence of Sound. But now it's come full circle for Ol' Roy. He's writing about country, crafting country songs that make his mama proud/cry, and headed to Missoula, where you'll probably find him drinking at Charlie B's at 8 a.m.
