Royal Tailor is an American Christian Pop/Rock band.[1]


Royal Tailor was started by Tauren Wells, DJ Cox and Blake Hubbard while they were attending college.[citation needed] Jarrod Ingram later joined.[citation needed] Royal Tailor quickly gained experience by performing more than 300 shows in 2 years.[citation needed]

After hearing Royal Tailor's music, Leeland and Jack Mooring passed along the band's EP to Jason McArthur, Vice President of A&R of Provident Music Group, who signed them to a record deal.[citation needed] Producers Aaron Lindsey, Chuck Butler and Daniel Kinner produced their debut album, Black & White, which was released on June 7, 2011. It received a nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for the 54th Grammy Awards.[2]
