Evan Brum & The Royal High
Evan Brum grew up surrounded by the sounds of classic American roots/blues music. He influenced by artists such as Taj Mahal, Albert King, Richie Havens, and The Allman Brothers Band. Over the past few years, Evan and his band The Royal High have forged ahead with an eclectic mix of classic roots based music, combined with a modern rock edge. This rings true in Evan's raspy vocal delivery, which has been described by some as a "Tom Jones, Tom Waites sandwich" Evan compliments his gritty vocal styling with percussive, rhythm based acoustic guitar playing.
As far as the band goes, The Royal High exemplifies solid American roots-rock music. This is well represented throughout the album with Lead guitar player Jon Shriver. From classic bluesy Stones influenced licks, to good old fashioned classic rock shredding, this son of a gun isn't screwing around. The bands newest member who also engineered and co-produced the album is musician Bryan Smith who plays a wide variety of instruments on the album, as well during live performances. Ranging from classic Hammond organ, to space age modern synch, Bryan adds a fresh dynamic to the band. Drummer Matt Zebroski, who performs on the album, holds down the fort with his unique jazz/rock styling. Performing with the band most recently is hard-hitting rock & roll drummer Dave Vincola. Bass duties on the album are credited to New Zealand native, and Julliard graduate Mat Fieldes . Pro bass player Glen Nataupsky, who has accompanied the band on recent live gigs, is equally is a no nonsense force to be reckoned with.
