Combining the best elements of rock, pop, funk and soul, Alanna Royale is led fearlessly by Alanna Quinn-Broadus, whose soulful voice and suggestive, spicy swagger are just part of what gives the band its signature sound. She’s backed by a remarkable rhythm section – Jared Colby on guitar, Gabriel Golden on bass and Matt Snow on drums - and a tremendously talented two-piece horn section – Kirk Donovan on trumpet and Diego Vasquez on trombone.
The 6-member band was formed in Boston, and comprises of all Berklee College of Music Alumni. The project showcases original Caribbean-Jazz compositions, and pays tribute to jazz legends Sonny Rollins and Chick Corea.
“This album showcases some of my best song writing to date, and my main goal was to capture all of the performances in a live setting – reminiscent of the classic jazz albums. I’m especially excited for the addition of the steel pans. They have really helped to define this fresh and unique sound that we have discovered as a band and we can’t wait to share our music with the masses.”
