The Royal Us

Heather Lockie and Max Kutner began working together while studying at the California Institute of the Arts. Both realized they shared a passion for starkly arranged melodies and devastating though sometimes charming stories covering unrequited love, sudden death and lingering regret. As a result, The Royal US was formed in the fall of 2011 as a forum for their personal interpretations of the seemingly inexhaustible canon of bleak (though not always) folk music (primarily turn of the century Appalachian ballads) thru electronic (though not always) improvisation with reduced instrumentation. The sets of their of their shows may also include related material from older centuries as well as well as originals. Also, the name of the group may be pronounced however one deems appropriate (i.e. US Bank vs. Toys-R-US).
