Rockboy, Pontus Hjelm, Dead By April, FBP Music Publishing


Rockboy Is the new incredible and uncompromising band that combines the best of two musical worlds. A new genre with unique authentic sound. Imagine Jay Z and Linkin Park had a kid after their “Collision Course” mash up. This child would be Rockboy. Edgy, heavy, energetic rock music paired with passionate Hip Hop lyrics and crazy beats, the band creates the new genre “HipRock”.

The band consists of Lyra (vocals), Pontus Hjelm (guitar) and Marcus Wesslen (bass) from Metalcore hit band Dead by April and Nick Linqwist (drums)

Lyra, born In London (UK), he quickly became a rapper, playing as a leading international actor like Chris Brown, Sean Kingston, The Game, Neyo, Estelle and Omarion. Soon after, media mogul and manager Matthew Knowles, father and former manager of Beyonce, took Lyra to his home in Houston, Texas to support him in his career. Pontus Hjelm founded the formation Dead by April, which was released shortly afterwards by Warner Bros. & Universal Music International and numerous awards for their songwriting, as well as multiple gold and platinum awards.
