GET TO KNOW: Eden Royals

When did you first get into music? What or who Inspired you?
From a young age, mostly brainwashed by our parents music tastes (Thankfully good ones).
Who did you grow up listening to, and does that impact on what you create now?
All the greats, across all the genres. The impact they have on us is that it inspires us to work hard and make good music. Also FIFA soundtracks, always introducing us to fresh music. Hope to be on there one day soon!
How long have you been playing/writing?
Lloyd and Kenny have been writing, playing live and recording together for around 8 years. 4 years as Eden Royals.
How often do you play live?
We’ve gigged constantly over the last 3 years, far too many to mention. After coming back from our tour in the states we set out to write and record as much material as possible. We are currently finishing off recording material for all our releases this year, so will be looking to book some more shows soon.
What has been your favourite moment in music?
Our favourite moment would have to be a show we played in upstate New York, Binghamton. We had rehearsed the sh*t out of our set, but wasn’t prepared from the drummers kick pedal to brake during the third song. We had to try improvise on our feet. We decided to play an acoustic version of the track, which we had never done before and it worked really well. This bought us enough time to get the pedal sorted and the drummer then came on, holding the pedal in his hand like he won the world cup!
Lloyd recalls – There was no point in talking to the crowd because this dude in a cap and tracky bottoms from Essex, might as well of been speaking another language when talking to the American people. The amount of times I was asked to say ‘Arry Potter’ was beyond a joke!
