The Royal Foundry is a Canadian Indie-Alt-Pop band anchored by husband and wife Jared Salte and Beth Schumacher, along with touring band members Robbie Szabo and Jeremy Dehek.
Founded in 2013 what started as a folk-duo quickly evolved into an in- die-alt-pop quartet. They were thrown into the spotlight when their music video “All We Have” received attention from local radio station Sonic 102.9. The video went “indie-viral” quickly hitting 50,000 views on YouTube. Their first alt-pop single ‘Running Away’ released in 2015 was their first journey into Alternative music. Shortly after it’s release it climbed the Alt-Rock Charts across Canada to #23. (the only indie band on the chart at the time)
After playing multiple cross-Canada tours and being introduced into touring in the US through tours and extensive showcasing, The Royal Foundry gained popularity and accolades with their album “Lost In Your Head” earning them numerous awards and nominations from the WCMA’s, EMA’s, Lennon Awards and many more. Their album has since then had three Alt-Rock Top 40 Singles with “Never Have Time, Running Away and Dreamers.”
Recently, with the release of their new album ‘WAKEUP WAKEUP’, The Royal Foundry has continued to push their success, growing and maturing as artists, enveloping and experimenting with unique instrumentals and daring compositions.
Over their short career they've had the opportunity to share the stage with Twenty One Pilots, Halsey, The Lumineers, The Arkells, July Talk, Hollerado etc...
