Roy Milton (31 July 1907 – 18 September 1983) was an American R&B singer, drummer and bandleader. Milton’s grandmother was a Native American. He was born in Wynnewood, Oklahoma and grew up on a reservation before moving to Tulsa. He joined the Ernie Fields band in the late 1920s as singer and, later, drummer. Moving to Los Angeles in 1933, he formed his own band, the Solid Senders, with Camille Howard on piano, and began recording in the 1940’s. His big break came in 1946, when “R. M. Blues” on the Specialty Records label became a big hit, helping to establish Art Rupe’s company.
