Royal Bliss is an American hard rock band. Comprising Neal Middleton, Taylor Richards, Jake Smith, Dwayne Crawford and Sean Hennesy, it was formed in Salt Lake City, UT in 1997. It made its mainstream debut with the independently released Free Again in 1998. A rigorous tour schedule across states including Utah, California, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Illinois, Texas helped the band swiftly build a solid fan-following. For almost a decade Royal Bliss churned out successful albums and EPs. The band's achievements caught the eye of record labels, leading to a deal with Capitol Records in 2007. 2009's Life in Between, its first label-backed album, helped it find a spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The band released two more albums - Waiting Out the Storm and Chasing The Sun - before relocating to Nashville, TN.
