U.S. Royalty: www.myspace.com/usroyalty & http://www.usroyaltymusic.com/

“With propulsive rhythms destined to move more feet than a parade for a queen, monarchial rule never sounded so good.” – Spin.com

U.S. Royalty was born in late 2007, birthed from the lifelong musical collaboration of brothers John and Paul Thornley. John (vocals and piano) and Paul (guitar) were raised in an extremely musical environment in a house filled with instruments, record collections, and often rocking all night at cross-generational jam sessions.

After playing together under various band names, the brothers connected with drummer Luke Adams while all three were sequestered in Indiana as students at Grace College. They championed everything from Oasis to David Bowie to Sam Cooke. The band also celebrated classic standards of the 1940s, the automatic touchstones of the 1970s, and the au courant vibrations of still viable acts like Sun Kil Moon and Rufus Wainwright. The trio banged around the heartland, polishing and experimenting, making the best of their less than conducive geographical location.

Eventually drifting back east to D.C., they plugged into the emerging scene bands, artists, fashion designers, and DJs contributing to the creative resurgence of D.C. nightlife. Through warehouse parties and happenings at small size venues such as DC9 and La Casa, they soon encountered D.C. indie rock journeyman bass player Jacob Michael. Jacob Michael joinged the band and U.S. Royalty became reality.

The winter months that followed were spent shivering around a single heater after ensconcing themselves in an abandoned trailer in rural Maryland. There the band crafted their initial set of songs, honing in on a sound assuredly contemporary but deeply steeped in resonant sounds of the twentieth century.

U.S. Royalty is currently playing a select number of shows along the east coast. U.S. Royalty is John Thornley (vocals, keys) Paul Thornley (guitar, vocals), Jacob Rabadi (bass), and Luke Adams (drums).
