Alanna Royale combines the best elements of rock, pop, funk and soul, all executed by their fearless leader and sensual vocalist, Alanna Quinn-Broadus, an unparalleled rhythm section – Jared Colby on guitar, Gabriel Golden on bass and Matt Snow on drums - and a tremendously talented two-piece horn section – Kirk Donovan on trumpet and Diego Vasquez on trombone.
Without a single recorded song, Alanna Royale was able to obtain an impressive fan base and a reputation solely because of their unforgettable live performances. In January of 2013, the band released its debut EP, Bless Her Heart, which led to sold-out shows across Nashville and prompted Mike Grimes, owner of the world famous Grimey’s to declare them, “the next big thing.”
The band’s vivacious and soulful live shows have catapulted Alanna Royale onto the music scene. And now, thanks to their impressive fanbase and reputation, Alanna Royale’s, ACHILLES, is posed to skyrocket them to superstardom.
Recorded at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, the album was engineered and produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff), and features a revolving door of local talent including members of Los Colognes, Fly Golden Eagle and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Alanna Royale shines bright by marrying smooth, retro roots with dirty Rock n’ Roll attitude. Since the release of Bless Her Heart, the band has shared the stage with some of Nashville’s finest, and made appearances at Bonaroo, Austin City Limits, East Nashville Underground and Music City Roots. They’ve been featured in Garden & Gun and Nashville Lifestyles and on NPR.

After performing on Celebrity Cruises as a solo entertainer (Guitarist/Vocalist) for 3 years, touring North and South America, as well as the Mediterranean, Baltic and Holy land, and simultaneously working on featured musical arrangements with show bands, orchestras and a cappella groups. He started singing at a very early age...try 3! In fact, he used to make up songs when his mom, a professional singer/actress, was taking him to kindergarten. Owen was a charter member of the Children's Chorus of Washington, which provided the opportunity to sing at Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, and an Italian tour. He attended Blake High School's performing arts signature program in Silver Spring, Maryland, and then went on to Indiana University's prestigious Jacobs School of Music where he received a BS in Vocal Performance and Theatre. At Indiana, Owen sang with two widely acclaimed groups: The Singing Hoosiers, America's premier show choir; and the renowned a cappella group Straight No Chaser. Both groups toured the United States extensively, as well as a tour throughout Greece. He also was musical director and performed the role of Tommy in the musical "Tommy," and was featured in the musical, "Urinetown." In 2005, Owen formed his own band, True Story, and the 7-piece pop/R & B group produced its debut original CD in 2008. After graduation, Owen formed a new a cappella group called The Dockers, and embarked on his first of many tours with Celebrity Cruises.
