RIAA Gold-certified singer-songwriter ROYAL & THE SERPENT is an artist entirely unafraid to bare the deepest and darkest parts of her psyche. Originally from New Jersey, she first took up guitar at age 14 with help from the then-six-year-old sister of her friend Donna Missal then relocated to L.A. at age 18. Thanks to the buzz behind songs like 2019’s Weddings & Funerals and Salvador Dali—and to her electrifying live show—she eventually inked a deal with Atlantic.
Royal’s unfiltered songwriting has proved wildly resonant to her ever-growing fanbase and led to such triumphs as touring with Demi Lovato and making an appearance on the pop superstar’s latest full-length. She's performed at major festivals like When We Were Young and Firefly and toured with artists like grandson and PVRIS. Made with producers like Zakk Cervini (Yungblud, Poppy), Keith Sorrells (Demi Lovato, Pink Sweat$), and David Dahlquist (Hayley Kiyoko, Pierce the Veil).
