“The Royal Foundry rocks like marital bliss”

“Meet the new king and queen of the Edmonton Music Awards. The Royal Foundry — featuring singers (and married couple) Jared and Bethany Salte — took home three honours during Tuesday night’s ceremony at the Winspear Centre.”

“Sherwood Park couple Bethany and Jared Salte of electro-alt pop band The Royal Foundry have had a pretty big year so far. Recently, the group was awarded Single of the Year and Music Video of the Year for their single “Running Away,” as well as Group of the Year, at the Edmonton Music Awards (EMAs).”

““We’re thrilled to have two songwriters as talented as Jared and Bethany become a part peermusic. The response to The Royal Foundry and what they’ve been able to achieve while doing it all themselves is remarkable, so I’m very excited to see what we can do together,” said Craig Currier.”

“I almost missed hearing this song from Alberta band The Royal Foundry, as it ended up sitting in the wrong e-mail inbox set for deletion. As much as I want to ignore the never ending press releases that still continue to be sent to my old submissions e-mail account, I keep wondering what kind of gems might slip through the cracks if I never get the correct info sent to my current submissions account. Take a listen to “Start This Fire” from Jared and Beth Salte (aka The Royal Foundry). The married couple have had a pretty successful go in wining 75k from the Peak Performance Project in Alberta, synchs in The Sports Network, CFL and Rookie Blue, radio support from NPR, BBC, Sirius and CBC, along with recently showcasing in Austin for SXSW at Canada House. The group though almost never realized all these successes, as originally they never had the intention of putting all their efforts into the band.”

“What do you get when you combine the edgy rock vocals of Junkyard Poets front man (the youngest nominated producer of the year in GMA history) and the beautifully artistic sensibilities of a photographer whose musical history is that full of worshipful melodies? The Royal Foundry.”
