Royal Tailor is a Houston-based band that will soon take the entire world by storm. They defy what is typical of most “Christian bands”. How so? They aren’t a cliche, and aren’t presenting a cheesy attempt of being relevant. Their latest project is an authentic, dynamic production, filled with catchy lyrics, undeniable groove, and an unwavering message.
The CD starts off with Got that Fire. WOW! Now, THIS is how you introduce a new project. This track simply explodes, is full of energy, and convinces you immediately that they really do have that fire. You aren’t given much time to catch your breath because the guitars and drums drive you right into Jesus Love. This song has an appearance by TobyMac, and reminds us that we are loved unconditionally. Original encourages the listener to stop trying to fit into the mold of society. I’ve been created for something greater. I’m a fighter, igniter, yeah, I’m the original. I believe that many teens can be encouraged by this song to pursue who they were born to be, rather than following the suggestions of peer pressure. Things begin to slow down just a bit with You are My Rescue. This song has been in heavy rotation on many CCM stations, and will leave you joining in the refrain: nothing I fear can stand in Your way; You are my rescue. Love Song is exactly what the song title suggests. It is beautiful, and speaks of how Love changes our lives. You make my heart beat steady to the love song You’ve written for me. It seems that the band decided that your time for rest was long enough, and you were given enough time to catch your breath, so the dance track Ready Set Go, featuring Capital Kings, comes next. Royal Tailor uses this track to say that Love is something everyone needs to know, and this band is ready to share it. Remain has also been in heavy rotation in my area, and has the sweetest refrain of this promise: stars burn out, seasons change, time will pass and beauty fade, but all My Love will remain. Start Over encourages the listener to remember that any situation can change. We all fall down, gotta get back up again, knowing that at every ending is a chance to start again. Making Me New is one of my morning cardio standards. It truly is impossible to stand still, or wear a frown, while listening to this song. When you investigate the lyrics, you will hear how exciting it is to be changed by Love. Give Me Faith is a moving ballad that challenges us to remember to trust that things are happening, even when we cannot see them. Fight for Freedom (Let the Walls Fall) is the perfect ending to this project. It is an anthem, wrapped in a battle cry, served up on a platter of sheer ear candy. The combination of the lyrics, vocals, instruments, and production is simply brilliant.
It is close to impossible to pick just 1 song as a favorite; I love all of the tracks! Just in case you haven’t heard Royal Tailor before, here is your sneak peek of 2 songs that my family and I rock out to daily:
Ready Set Go:
Making Me New:
Everything about this project is fabulous, from the masterful musicality of each individual band member, to the flawless mixing and production. Royal Tailor has found the perfect blend with Tauren Wells’ smooth vocals (reminiscent of Justin Timberlake, and a young Michael Jackson), and the incredible skills of DJ Cox (guitar), Jarrod Ingram (drums), and Blake Hubbard (bass). Their song choices for this project are simply genius, and should place them in the top running for major awards, and a long career. If I could grade this project, I would give it an A, with infinite pluses!
You can find Royal Tailor at your local Family Christian store, on via online retailers.
