Hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, Royal Bliss has been making their mark for years with a consistent work ethic of writing, recording, and touring that have helped build the success of the band.  Their wide variety of influences from Johnny Cash to Led Zeppelin mold the sound that is uniquely theirs and cannot be denied.  Their music speaks to the common man, tells a story and rocks out with a good party crowd, all the while being delivered by the inimitable deep and raspy voice of front man, Neal Middleton.

Royal Bliss started in a basement as kids who had a passion for music and a drive to succeed.  Over the years their music has evolved from what would echo a rockin’ late night frat party to Folk and Country, to straight up Rock N' Roll,”it’s a musical cocktail” that celebrates life's good times, hardships, love and raw emotion, while paying homage to their classic rock roots. 

They began as a rock band achieving early success with their music on several rock radio stations.  In 2009 their Capitol Records debut "Life In-Between" charted on the Billboard top 200 and was #1 in Billboard Heatseekers.  In 2012 the independently released "Waiting Out The Storm" reached #9 on the iTunes Rock Chart and hit #2 in Billboard Heatseekers. In 2014, "Chasing The Sun" was recorded and released again on their own label, Air Castle Records, with distribution through Universal (INgrooves) Music Group.  On the Chasing The Sun album the alternative roots of the band shined on the album’s single "Cry Sister” that climbed the Active Rock chart to (#31) and was Royal Bliss’ 6th Single to crack the top 50 on Active Rock radio.  

They have toured with acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Buckcherry, Candlebox, Kid Rock, and Brett Michaels and have grown into seasoned and dynamic live performers with a solid fan base across the country. “We have always done our own thing by singing songs about things that are real and that are happening to us in the current state of the world," Says Middleton.

This last 2016 summer Royal Bliss released their 5 song EP entitled "The Truth” on June 3rd.  It is a collection of original songs that bridged a gap between rock and country.  The EP’s focus track “We’re All Livin’ The Dream” had its World Premier on CMT and kick started the summer touring with many of the nations biggest festivals including 5 Live Nation Country Fests featuring monster acts like Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, The Cadillac Three, Aaron Lewis. and many more. 

The band is currently touring, and plan to finish recording the new album in January 2019. Should be released in spring 2019.
