Currently listening to: Royal Bliss – Chasing the Sun
Recently, I had a pretty cool thing happen. Due to working with the Unsung Melody website, I had the extreme pleasure of interviewing all of Royal Bliss. See, their new album Chasing the Sun was released on Feb 18 and after listening to it several times that night, my mind was racing with how awesome each and every song was. Based on the liner notes, I realized all of them had some level of input and that’s when the idea of interviewing the entire band popped into my head. I figured the only way I was actually going to be able to fall asleep was to send in my interview request. So at 1am, I did just that.
Fast forward to the next morning and my interview had been confirmed. WOO! Four days after the release, I sat down with Neal Middleton, Taylor Richards, Jake Smith and Dwayne Crawford to discuss the making of the album. You can read or listen to that hour long conversation here.
For those that know me, it’s no surprise how much I like Royal Bliss. Hell, when I first saw them open for another band back in 2009, I ending up seeing them live 5 times that year! This band deserves every bit of fame, recognition, what have you, that they get. To be honest, and I’ve said it from the very beginning…I don’t know why this band hasn’t sky-rocketed to the top! Until then, I will do everything I can to spread the Bliss.
I really hope if you stumble across my site that you will take the time to listen to them. Oh and here’s a quick link to their album Chasing the Sun: iTunes or Amazon. If a live show is more your thing, find a tour date and pick up the album in person!
If by chance Royal Bliss is not your cup of Rock ‘n Roll tea, then by all means, find a band and support them.
Music makes the world go ’round…and thank God for that!
