Hunter’s Ale House Presents: Keep It Local – Episode One – The Royal North
The Royal North are a 24 carat rock band – straight up, no chaser. Hailing from Canada’s smallest province, Prince Edward Island, they are lifelong players who love to rattle the walls. There are, of course, nods to the staple albums from the band’s tour van, but there’s more than that. For The Royal
North, melody reigns supreme. Chris Dalziel, Brady MacDonald, Craig MacDonald, Donovan Morgan, and JordanWalsh have a penchant for writing memorable songs.
They are proud Canadians who work their trade in blue denim, and leather collars . Their songs feel inviting because their lyrics are laid-back and approachable, much like the band members themselves. These rockers have been taking their sound everywhere they can. At stops from Toronto dive bars, industry showcases, to huge festivals in the U.K., the Royal North have been making fans. Together, they command any stage, big or mall. Watch and listen for the Royal North. They have great songs, a full tank of gas and a strong path forward.
Recently, I had the chance to sit down with their singer, Chris Dalziel, to talk about how the band got together, their upcoming 8 song EP, what it was like for them to land a song on the iTunes rock chart next to Led Zeppelin, and what lies ahead for them in the future.
