Okanagan Indie Pop Artist ROYAL Marks Her New Sonic Era with Radio Single Release of “Wild”


Independent pop artist ROYAL is pleased to celebrate the recent release of her new radio single “Wild” with a show in her hometown of Vernon on Friday, October 28th at Record City at 8PM.

Released to Canadian radio on September 13th, “Wild” is the first radio single release for ROYAL since her selection as a Top 12 Finalist in the coveted 2014 BC Peak Performance Project and it also serves as her debut collaboration with celebrated producer Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge).

“I want to take listeners on a journey where they can truly lose themselves in the story, sound, and emotion of what they are hearing. To create ‘Wild’, I had to lose my own sense of comfort to create a bolder and more romantic style than what I’ve done in the past. This song captures a new sound and a new beginning for me as an artist,” says ROYAL.

Inspired by an ill-fated relationship that saw her find empowerment and self-identity by breaking free, “Wild” marks a musical shift for ROYAL in an 8-year journey that has taken her from folk pop beginnings toward a new indie pop flavour fused with rich vocals, lush harmonies, and a cinematic pulse.

During her musical evolution, there have been many highlights for the Vernon-raised songstress, including multiple film and TV placements from her debut album (2009’s Seasons), first prize in the 2010 We Are Listening Singer/Songwriter Competition, a Canadian HOT AC Top 40 single (2010’s “Christmas With You”), and The 2014 BC Peak Performance Project, which saw her beat out hundreds of artists to become a Top 12 finalist and participate in an industry bootcamp and a series of performance showcases, which ultimately led to ROYAL’s refined sound.

Throughout her journey, ROYAL has consistently stayed the course as a self-supporting and empowered female independent artist – determined to succeed on her own terms while creating genuine artistic connections with her growing audience.

She says, “A song can provide relief, celebration, strength, and comfort to someone who may feel alone in their pain. In those moments, I want to let them know that I’m singing their language.”

“Wild” is the first of several new songs that will form the groundwork for ROYAL’s upcoming album, which is due for release in the spring of 2017.

Tickets for ROYAL’s “Wild” release show in Vernon on October 28th at Record City at 8PM are available for $10 at the door.
