Bio

After their busiest six months to date, including performances at Bluesfest, St Kilda Fest and a sold out homecoming show at The Zoo in Brisbane, Port Royal are fast becoming one's of Australia's most wanted with their modern twist on the classic pop-rock & roll sound of the 70's and beyond. United by a shared love of the attitude, aesthetic, and music of classic rock and roll culture, Port Royal have been making waves with their mind-melting mix of electric live performances and studio gold. An orgiastic blend of iconic rock influences complemented by contemporary and relatable lyrics makes for an unmistakably catchy sound. Their influences range from the likes of The Rolling Stones bluesy charismatic rock roots through to the guitar driven dance rhythms of the Strokes and melodic flow of Oasis.
Comprised of members Lawson Doyle, Liam Morton, Connor Arnold & Samuel Shepherd, the band is forged over long time friendships and shared musical taste and appreciation. Port Royal keep up the momentum of a freight train. With seven independent tours of the Australian East Coast, a Jameson Whisky Sponsorship and a variety of international supports under their belt (incl. Dead Kennedys and Supersuckers here in Aus), the band are now readier than ever to take on the next stage of development. Stay on the lookout for where the road leads Australia’s most hardworking, promising Rock & Roll band.

Super charming. I imagine this one has already made plenty of people happy when you've played it live, and it'll definitely continue to do so.
