Kenny Roby is a North Carolina-based singer-songwriter. He's the former lead singer of Six String Drag, which he formed with old friend bassist Rob Keller in the early 1990s and became one of the main bands of the era's so called Americana movement. The band's style ranged from old style country with a hint of soul and gospel to rock. While Six String Drag broke up in the late 1990s, Roby continues to make records and play live shows with the Mercy Filter, which includes Scott McCall of $2 Pistols. In 2013 Roby released Memories & Birds which he described as "almost a concept album".
