The Royal Foundry Edmonton “Infectious! Hook-laden! Fresh! The next hot thing!” All these words and more have been used by radio and TV personalities, the press and promoters. Words run out. Jared and Bethany Salte had no intentions of starting the Electro-Alt-Pop Quartet that is now The Royal Foundry; But after the release of “All We Have” received international exposure through the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and ABC’s Rookie Blue they knew they had discovered something special. In 2015 they won $75,000 as part of the Peak Performance Project for their song "Running Away" Which peaked at #21 on Alt-Rock Stations across Canada! It has also been featured on TSN as the opening song for the CFL and in two National commercials (ENMAX, Alberta Climate Change). This new direction pulls them away from their folk roots and is the sort of music you might expect if Mutemath crashed a tea party with Coldplay and Arcade Fire.
