Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


From songs reminiscent of Bowie or The Cars, to the Henry Mancini inspired Miami-Deco Art Rock EP from the band's 2016 Release "The Hunting Days", Roman Williams & The Prey is a rock n' roll act that is wonderfully difficult to categorize. In part, because lead singer/writer Roman Williams himself is always trying to stretch an audience's idea of what a pop song is permitted to be. But also because in spite of being a hard hitting rock band at heart, his take on that Nebokov-meets-Nick Cave discipline of lyric writing often yields songs that are visceral, sexual, and slice of life all at once. Songs that are typically tales of outsiders--those who dream and suffer for it-- and often involving LGBT characters and themes. Humans deeply at odds with the America that surrounds them through no fault of their own. And also a dark sense of justice and the ever present insinuation that someone or something will even the score. 
In a white suit with a white guitar Roman Williams & The Prey hits the stage to unveil these deep, dreamy, midsummer's night songs that are also those outsider's stories. One part summer love, one part seance. But very much a Rock and Roll band, in that old fashioned gunslinger way that few modern acts are. Creatures of process, and lovers of the craft. It's music that simply shouldn't be missed.
