Growing up in the Poconos, spending a year in upstate NY, and living in Brooklyn for a while before moving to the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania has allowed me to meet some incredibly talented artists and musicians. Over the years, I have seen them (and myself) grow as artists and I've always admired anyone who continues to push their work as far as they can.
That being said, I couldn't have been more thrilled to hear from Nick of Ark Royal. I've known Nick longer than I haven't known him and I attended as many of his previous bands' shows as I possibly could. Nick is always getting better and doing awesome things, as is his bandmate (and the other 50% of Ark Royal), SteveO (of The Holy Mess).
So if you love campfire sing-alongs and alcohol-soaked throats yelling about what it feels like to be a human, check Ark Royal out!
