Royal Tailor’s passion to reach the younger generations fuels its blend of pop, rock, R&B, hip hop and worship evident in its new song “Hold Me Together.”
"A lot of our songs have to do with being Christ in the world,” explains lead singer Tauren Wells. “We want to create a culture where students are doing the ministry. They are creating the ideas. They are dreaming the dream, and then they are actually going out there and doing those things."
Tauren met up with Blake Hubbard, Jarrod Ingram and D.J. Cox while in Bible college to form the rest of Royal Tailor. After college, the band spent a year working full time mentoring and teaching youth to lead worship services in a church in Granite City, Illinois. Their work inspired much of the music on their first CD Black and White.
"We feel like there's an identity crisis in our generation," says D.J. "Everybody is searching, and we want to give an identity to those searching for Christ. We want to give them the truth. The songs on this record take you through a journey of faith and boldness. We encourage youth to have faith, step out, and be who they are. Believe in God even when it's hard.”
Royal Tailor will be following along with Leeland and Building 429 this fall on the "Sounds of Hope" tour to bring awareness and support to the nonprofit organization Food for the Hungry.
