“The best musical satirist working today.” - Bay Area Reporter
Roy Zimmerman’s signature blend of heart and hilarity has never been more necessary. In a career spanning more than thirty years, Roy’s songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime, and his videos have garnered hundreds of millions of views.
Roy co-writes these songs with his wife, Melanie Harby. Roy’s and Melanie’s song parody “Vote Him Away (The Liar Tweets Tonight)” garnered over 140 million views last year.
The Los Angeles Times says, “Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society's foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer."
Joni Mitchell says, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection."
RiZe Up is Roy’s tenth album release as a solo artist. It’s a funny and forceful expression of resistance to the MAGA mindset. “Satire empowers people,” says Roy. “To laugh is to fight back. To hope is to fight back.”
Roy has shared stages with a vast variety of musical and comedic luminaries - Robin Williams, Arlo Guthrie, Ellen DeGeneres, Bill Maher, Holly Near, John Oliver, The Roches and George Carlin to name a few.
