Hailing from South Carolina, Andrew Christopher Rutherford Royal has a deep connection with the land and embodies a non-traditionalist's interpretation of the eastern South. He writes Southern Gothic cameos which he weaves into often dark, Indie Americana. After writing and curating the works for an album he records and mixes the music for Rutherford Royal (as well as other artists) in his remote cabin studio overlooking a hidden waterfall in southern Tennessee.
Royal's latest single "Keep It Between Us", the downtempo indie rock tune profiles a secret monogamist who is in a polyamorous relationship. Wanting more, the monogamist is plagued with unhappiness and yearning. With wistful melodies over moody contemplative guitars and chilled beats, "Keep It Between Us" is a bittersweet striking musical moment.
We hope you enjoy "Keep It Between Us" as much as we do and add it to all of your playlists for 2023. You can check out more of Rutherford Royal's music + keep up with him and all his projects below!
