archroyal is a new music project loosely based in the indie folk genre. Think Bon Iver, Josh Garrels or Sufjan Stevens when he’s not bleeping.
Originally, these songs were born out of personal reflection. The songs are steeped in an effort to remind the artist himself of what the gospel truly signifies. Christ and his work.
The "Anchor EP" was written, produced and mixed by Mark Edwards in his home studio. Some lyrics were provided by the theological minds of some wise old folks (Lucy Larcom, Isaac Watts, Edward Mote and Haldor Lillenas). Some additional vocals were provided by Edwards’ wife, Heidi, and his two daughters, Adeline & Ilya. Otherwise, Mark covered all other vocals, guitars, merlin (banjo-type instrument), bass, keys and a few drums.
