About the artist
They write songs, lead worship and emerge from the studio with a bag full of musical paradox; songs that are personal yet universal, lyrics that are fresh yet honest, music that sounds like it was born far away from the church yet which shouts praise with ever beat. If you want the one-liner, then this is it; The Royal Royal play at the intersection of new sounds and ancient truths.
A few years back and the future for Nathan and Gabriel doesn’t feature The Royal Royal.
Back then in the days where the modern worship story is being woven in and out of mainstream venues, charts and arts, Nathan and Gabriel are Bible College students. Nathan is this musical geek, viewed as a cultural oddity, a potentially toxic brand. But both brothers apply themselves to their studies, sharpen up their theology and expand their empathy. They emerge with a few scars, but a tank full of optimism.
The brothers know that their upbringing has given them an understanding of the power of music - James Taylor, Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder all see to that. But as Pastor’s Kids there are other lessons from the past that are still at play; the sense that being a Biblical conservative and a cultural liberal does not leave them torn in two, but whole and healthy, full of questions and confidence in equal measure.
So don’t be surprised when you wake up to the truth that The Royal Royal come at their second album "THE RETURN OF THE KING"- released with, The Paradigm Collective this year - with an eyes-open agenda.
The Book of Proverbs reminds us not to despise the day of small beginnings; I think it’s important to properly recognize the small wins as well as the large ones, that way we have the opportunity to recognize the grace of God in everything.
It is with this spirit of gratitude that we introduce to you our second record,"The Return of the King" This record represents the hard work, labor, love, and dreams of dozens of people, right from the studio with the Paradigm Collective offices to our incredible partners and friends, that we greatly appreciate and who share a passion for Jesus, His Church, and music.
We invite you to check out our small contribution to the worship conversation. These are our loaves and fishes, and may Jesus multiply them in the life of every listener, that they be a blessing and encouragement to you in every season of your journey with Jesus.
