About Alanna Royale:
Alanna Royale makes classic-minded R&B and soul music for the modern age. It’s a sound rooted in big melodies, blasts of brass, percussive punch, and old-school grooves. The songs shine a light not only on frontwoman Alanna Quinn-Broadus’ larger- than-life voice, but her songwriting chops, too. The band formed in Nashville, where Alanna and guitarist Jared Colby relocated after cutting their teeth as working-class musicians in Boston. In Tennessee, they teamed up with bassist Gabriel Golden, forming a core lineup that often expands to as many as ten members (including backup vocalists and a two-piece horn section) in concert. The band looks beyond Nashville’s country-filled past and takes inspiration from Motown’s soul, Stax’s funky strut, and rock & roll’s rebellion. Tattooed, brash, and unapologetically unique, they stood out in a town dominated by Americana music, charting a unique course whose highlights have since included an appearance at Bonnaroo, a string of cross-country shows supporting acts like Lee Fields and St. Paul and the Broken Bones, and an audience that celebrates the band’s diversity.
