Feeling a bit camera shy


RICK ROYALE combines the trash and jangle, Americana of the Replacements with the California cool of Tom Petty or The Byrds and the Rock ‘n’ Roll heart of Lou Reed’s Velvet Underground. Constantly pushing towards the future while never failing to recall the past...

RICK ROYALE's emotive lyrics rise above a sound that echoes the classic pop of the late 60’s and early 70s while taking time to stroll the same musical side streets as today’s artists like David Gray, Ryan Adams, Edwin Mc Cain, Elliot Smith or Pete Yorn.

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 in the early 90's. After 3 full length records, numerous singles and compilations, and due to the regional success of later projects like POPism 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.

RICK ROYALE's new 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.

RICK ROYALE has settled back in California after spending the last few years relentlessly touring the Nation and the UK as well as holding a critically acclaimed residency in New York City. The weekly night he started, called WhiskeyBreath, was described by Block Magazine 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". He is currently recording a new record to be release in the spring of 2007.
