Roy Faria - Roy Faria was born in the Azores/ Portugal in 1960 to Antonio and Maria Faria. Roy Faria and his parents immigrated to the United States in late 1960. At age 6 Roy became a U S Citizen. I always loved music and at age 14, I started playing guitar after observing a Portuguese Band with a great guitar player. My first major musical influences were The Beatles. Then came Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower. Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie Montrose, Frank Marino of Mahogany Rush, Led Zeppelin, and so on.
I came to the Lord at age 17, after a bad car accident. My life change drastically at that time. After my recovery, I went back to Portugal to celebrate my new life with friends and family, helping the community along the way.
My music has grown over the years and I have dedicated my talents back to the Lord Jesus Christ. He alone is worthy of my life. And my sole purpose is to repay Him for all He has done for me.
Time Horizon is my new musical home. And now, I am blessed to be with a bunch of crazies just like myself. We get along great and have a lot of fun doing what we do with the music. Blessing to all of you who partake of the Time Horizon experience.
