Merchant Royal / Press

“The raw croon of Manteris mixed with the talented structure of the band creates a unique and powerful sound.”

“Focusing on thick melodic harmonies over soft blues music, Merchant Royal provides calming sounds for the ears. With impressive vocals from Christina Manteris, [they are] a joy to listen to.”

“Salt Lake City's Merchant Royal is a band content on blending soulful, robust vocals with immediate and infectious guitar riffs. Inspired by music from the 60s and 70s, there's a timeless quality to lead track "Cherry Tree" that reminisces on the sound of Nashville's Buffalo Clover, alongside other great rock movers and shakers. Christina Manteris fronts the band with a Janis Joplin influenced vocal, gutsy and raw but also retaining a sublime, velveteen quality.”

“A band of young folks with soul and maturity beyond their years, Merchant Royal is one of those groups that “everyone’s talking about.””
