Well, website is finally live. We have a handfull of recordings. We have a bunch of new material. We have show dates, including an upper canadian tour. I figure I could probably talk a bit about who we are, and what we do. My name is Donovan, and I play guitar in the Royal North. But I also play in a laundry list of other bands with the fellas. All in different arrangements. We've all been friends for a long time, and we've been playing shows together for just as long. Craig and Brady have had success with their bands Arrows in the Air, Battery Point, and the band they are most famous for, Chamberlane. With Craig on bass and Brady on drums, you will never have such a solid backbone in a band. They are hand in glove. Jordo and I have been playing together for a while in an acoustic act with my beautiful wife, Laura. I lean on him like a post. I can't imagine I could ever find a guitarist that is as sympathetically resonant to my own playing. I hope he feels the same about my messy strumming. I've played in modern rock/hard rock bands like Flush, Give and Lenore and Jordan comes from a hardcore and pop-punk background in bands like Syracuse Me, but also backed up Chris when the Chris Dalziel Band made its debut some years ago. Chris has a long history of playing acoustically as a solo artist, but hand picked some of the best musicians in town to suit up. Life happened, that band dismantled, and our timing sync'd up, and now its the 5 of us. Making music that makes us happy.
The guys in the band will be making blog posts once in a while when something is worth posting. New tattoos, pictures of bowls of soup, cats, empty beer boxes. You know, the basics. We look forward to connecting with as many of you as we can. Cheers to the lot of ya.
