Meet David Roshay

Today we’d like to introduce you to David Roshay.

David, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Born in Hollywood and raised in the valley, I started in music in 6th grade in beginning band in the Percussion section. Moving on to Jazz Band in middle school and the beginning of High school. Finding love for other types of music I joined a hardcore rock band in 10th grade with friends from school and left Jazz band because my heart wasn’t in it.

All this time I was experimenting and producing music at home with any equipment, I could get my hands on at the time. From hip hop inspired tracks to experimental music like Portishead. To eventually recording my rock band in my garage post-high school. Over time the band fell out, but I was cooking something up of my own in the meantime. It eventually became to be known as DJ Roshay.

The one-man band. Fusing my production skills with my musicianship I loved from being in a band. Playing instruments has always been fun for me. Art is art. From playing drums in the band to teaching myself how to play guitar, I switched roles to fulfill my true purpose of singing and songwriting. Multi-Instrumentalist. Lately, heavy synths and soothing vocals has been the vibe. Drive music is what I like to call it.

Has it been a smooth road?
100% percent there have been obstacles, almost from the very beginning from having situations not working out with band members and having to regroup and figure it out. Most of the time, on my own.

Being an independent artist is the biggest obstacle itself though really. Wearing many hats and not having the resources to make real progress in your career but still make progress is the biggest challenge.

Please tell us more about your work.
I specialize in Performing and producing music that is overlooked these days. I’m known for producing music, songs, and beats. I sing and play guitar while djing. When I started my company, this was rare for one person to do.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Biggest shift I see is streaming and purchasing music. We are in a transition period in the streaming world.

The value of music is low and, unfortunately, I see that trend continuing.
