Can be sung alone, along to a dirty acoustic guitar or pounded out with a ramshackle group of drums, bass, guitars, and keys, in true rock 'n' roll fashion,
About the Artist RICK ROYALE, described by Vodka Magazine as an "artist and visionary" has been on the cutting edge of the independent music scene since he moved from Canada to Los Angeles with his rockabilly band The Rattled Roosters. After 3 full length records, numerous singles and compilations with The Rattled Roosters, and due to the success of later projects like POPism, Pretty in Pink, and The Royales, as well as his spirited solo shows, Rick has earned his reputation as a prolific and talented songwriter and a peerless live performer.
Having relentlessly toured the Nation and the UK, RICK ROYALE settled for a time in New York City where he held a critically acclaimed residency at a night he started called WhiskeyBreath which bound together a loose knit group of exceptional songwriters over thier appreciation for "songs, booze, and lovers". Block Magazine describes WhiskeyBreath as “avant-garde” and The Village Broadsheet claims that it was the "stomping grounds for just about everybody who's anybody on the East Village music scene today."
RICK ROYALE's record "AT THE END OF SUNSET" delivers simple, catchy, melodies and evocative lyrical imagery bathed in ringing Rickenbackers and waves of symphonic feedback, comfortably faded by the California sun.
With two records currently in the works RICK ROYALE continues to explore his passion for beautiful sound, simple, catchy, melodies and evocative lyrical imagery.
