SCHWEINFURT, Germany — “This is adult music … for people sitting down enjoying some wine,” said singer/guitarist Peter Roy of the Peter Roy Project’s new self-titled album.

During a recent interview at Ledward Barracks in Schweinfurt, Roy and disc jockey Brian Lindsay, the other half of PRP, spoke about the new album, their five-month collaboration and everything musical in between. The duo performs in Würzburg on Saturday.

Although the former soldiers have recorded together for a relatively short time, Peter and Brian have been following each other musically for much longer. When Lindsay heard that Roy was looking for a disc jockey, he didn’t hesitate to step forward.

“The music scene right now is flooded with way too many singer/songwriters,” Roy said. “By having a DJ — especially an electronic DJ — I have an element I can bring [to my music] that normal bands can’t bring.”

“Between the two of us … we both have the [different musical] ideas and we both have the know-how — but they don’t overlap,” Lindsay said.

Roy, 34, worked on the soundtrack to the 2006 movie “Turn Left” and played in the band Black 13. Lindsay, 30, has been a DJ for six years and has a regular gig at the Airport club in Würzburg, where he’s lived since leaving the service in 2003.

Both said that though PRP’s music is hard to categorize, it’s easy to listen to.

“It’s an eclectic mix of stuff” with elements of pop, rock, trip-hop and new jazz, Lindsay said. “Because it’s so eclectic, you can’t put the whole [record] anywhere.”

Roy said the new album should be available soon on and

PRP will perform Saturday at the Umsonst & Draussen (In Vain and Outside) Festival at the Mainweisen in Würzburg. Their hourlong set begins at 7 p.m. in Tent 1. Lindsay can be found at the Airport on the second Saturday of every month.
