Broke Royals
Broke Royals
Broke Royals was not supposed to be a band.

In 2014, after both graduating from William & Mary, Colin Cross enlisted Philip Basnight to record a few demos for Cross to shop to potential clients of his recording studio. Their instant musical chemistry in the studio paved the way for a dynamic partnership and, thus, Broke Royals was born. In just three years, Basnight and Cross have honed a singular sound, been praised by Billboard for their "sing-along, arena-ready sound," named an Artist On The Rise by Southwest Airlines, and one of the best live bands in D.C. by CBS.

The Washington D.C. duo walked back into the studio for a fourth time to record their self-titled, debut album with producer John Naclerio at his famed Nada Recording Studio in New York. Seamlessly integrating traditional rock with new digital elements, the guitar-driven rock, pop hooks, folk harmonies and Cross’s infectious beats fuse gracefully with Basnight's lyrical narratives.

True to the roots of their earliest moments in the studio, Basnight and Cross continue to find new ways to blend inspiration and genres that define their complex modern rock sound.
