Editors’ Notes

Royal Tailor isn’t the first Christian band to mix R&B, pop and hip-hop (remember dcTalk?), but it achieves this fusion exceptionally well on Black & White. The quartet conveys its messages of hope, self-respect and salvation with a light yet passionate touch, laying down persuasive grooves along with its God-centered testimony. Lead singer Tauren Wells is capable of sleek vocal moves à la Bruno Mars or Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, with a hint of ‘80s-era Michael Jackson present as well. The band’s ensemble playing is tight and supple, veering from the percolating beats of “Wannabe” to the elegant balladry of “Gravity (Pulling Heaven Down).” Songs like “Hold Me Together” and “Love Is Here” are heartfelt expressions of faith with appeal for secular listeners. “Control” takes some pointed digs at contemporary pop culture, checking off references to Ke$ha, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to a body-grabbing dance track. When they want to — as in “Freefall” — Royal Tailor delivers the sort of big celebratory choruses that Christian radio craves. A very encouraging debut by a band that blends genres with a confident sense of spiritual mission.

Customer Reviews

Stop being a

To my fellow Christians who are putting this album down...STOP IT. You need to stop putting God in a box. I have noticed lately people who are putting down Contemporary Christian artists are so stuck in the old testament, God says in the New Testament to "make a joyful noise unto the Lord" and that is what these boys are doing. Don't judge them just because their lyrics are reaching a broader audience. Just because they don't say "Jesus" 50 times in a song, doesn't mean they aren't Christian and you need to change your way of thinking, it is wrong. You want artists to come off and PROCLAIM that they are to assure they are legit Christians, when God says LIVE the Message rather than SAY You are a Christian. God told my mother when she would go to her workplace , her co-workers were non-believers, she immediately let it be known that she was a Christian, God immediately told her to stop saying it and start living the life in front of them. They started noticing her life right after. So I leave with this....stop judging by what they are not saying. We don't know what they do behind closed doors. If they are doing this for wrong reasons, then that is their salvation to deal with, not yours or mine. But if they Walk the Walk, and not Talk the Talk like your searching for, then that is all I need assurance for. Again, God is a fun loving God and we always tend (including myself) to put him in this boring box, He wants so much more for His people. They CAN serve God AND live their dream. On a personal note, I love hymns, but God can groove to other music as well, remember that my brothers and sisters, don't be so uptight, He doesn't want you to be. Peace and Love. Jesus, I love You!!!!
