ROYAL, Heart of Shadows Review
ROYAL is a vocalist from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada that balances energetic and emotional vocals with a full, warm and articulate musical production. ROYAL’s early musical influences were Billie Holiday and Bob Dylan. ROYAL never imagined a music career for herself until she performed in Saskatchewan at a family gathering, where she was discovered by Jack Lenz. The noted music producer for film and television invited her to Toronto to harness her raw talent and develop her emerging sound in a studio environment. The resulting album, Seasons, earned multiple film and TV placements – including Men With Brooms (CBC) and Cra$h and Burn (Showtime) – and later earning ROYAL top honors in the We Are Listening Singer/Songwriting Competition for the track, “No Sleep.” In 2010, ROYAL followed with the single “Christmas With You,” which peaked at #33 on the Canadian HOT AC Top 40 Charts.
Now, ROYAL is embarking on her most personal and ambitious project to date, her new album titled, Heart of Shadows. Working with noted artist and producer, Luca Fogale (Mathew V, Emily Rowed), the album contains six tracks that are deeply personal and full of ROYAL’s vocal authority. Further solidifying this young artist’s appeal. That’s the short of it!

Well written songs with outstanding lyrics. ROYAL is a singer that can convey emotions with her voice that is both relatable and controlled. The subject matter of the songs is varied, and the production is full of seductive vocals and luxurious arrangements.
