Jason Roy was kind enough to give Guitarmann an interview, and he also showed how he wrote and he plays the award winning song "Glory Defined." Building 429 has had an awesome run in the Christian music world. They won the 2005 New Artist of the Year from the Gospel Music Association, even though they had been hard at work prior to that.
I actually played in a band called All Too Familiar with Jason and some other friends prior to the formation of Building 429, and that was in the late 90s! These guys have been hard at work since then writing great music and touring with Sonicflood, Toby Mac, Todd Agnue, Barlow Girl, Family Force 5, Casting Crowns, Pillar, Storyside:B,--you name it!
I asked Jason some questions about guitar, amps, effects, playing on stage, and recording an interview before a show in NC. You can check out the full length interview here: Jason Roy Building 429 Interview.
