Shaman's Harvest
Shaman's Harvest
It has been a long road for Shaman's Harvest filled with moments of triumph alongside

challenges that few bands have the strength to overcome. Through it all, the quartet

looks optimistically towards a future with a record that exhibits their strongest, most

meaningful recordings to date. Long-time brothers in arms, they are stronger than ever

with enduring souls that never cease to persevere. Singer Nathan Hunt overcame a bout

with cancer while the band created Smokin' Hearts & Broken Guns, so perhaps fate is

now unequivocally on their side.

The story begins years ago in the Midwestern town of Jefferson City, Missouri. Bassist

Matt Fisher and singer Nathan Hunt began a collaboration with guitarist Josh Hamler that

has remained the foundation and core of Shaman's Harvest. Fisher reflects, "Drake and I

have been through a tremendous amount of high's and low's together in our years. We

have somehow managed to keep this music marriage together. Playing music has

squashed our differences, and it is our synergy. I believe we share a soul in it. From the

moment I meet him in his mother's basement in August, 1996 I've held the conviction he

is a rare talent you might find once in your life." Rhythm guitarist Josh Hamler echoes

these sentiments sharing, "Nate has the gift of voice. A voice that almost any vocalist

would dream of having.  He brings a very artistic approach to song writing making even

the simplest songs very unique, original, and very much that Shaman's Harvest sound."

Hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, Royal Bliss has been making their mark for years with a consistent work ethic of writing, recording, and touring that have helped build the success of the band. Their wide variety of influences from Johnny Cash to Led Zeppelin mold the sound that is uniquely theirs and cannot be denied. Their music speaks to the common man, tells a story and rocks out with a good party crowd, all the while being delivered by the inimitable deep and raspy voice of front man, Neal Middleton.

Royal Bliss started in a basement as kids who had a passion for music and a drive to succeed. Over the years their music has evolved from what would echo a rockin’ late night frat party to Folk and Country, to straight up Rock N' Roll,”it’s a musical cocktail” that celebrates life's good times, hardships, love and raw emotion, while paying homage to their classic rock roots.

They began as a rock band achieving early success with their music on several rock radio stations. In 2009 their Capitol Records debut "Life In-Between" charted on the Billboard top 200 and was #1 in Billboard Heatseekers. In 2012 the independently released "Waiting Out The Storm" reached #9 on the iTunes Rock Chart and hit #2 in Billboard Heatseekers. In 2014, "Chasing The Sun" was recorded and released again on their own label, Air Castle Records, with distribution through Universal (INgrooves) Music Group. On the Chasing The Sun album the alternative roots of the band shined on the album’s single "Cry Sister” that climbed the Active Rock chart to (#31) and was Royal Bliss’ 6th Single to crack the top 50 on Active Rock radio.

They have toured with acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Buckcherry, Candlebox, Kid Rock, and Brett Michaels and have grown into seasoned and dynamic live performers with a solid fan base across the country. “We have always done our own thing by singing songs about things that are real and that are happening to us in the current state of the world," Says Middleton.

This last 2016 summer Royal Bliss released their 5 song EP entitled "The Truth” on June 3rd. It is a collection of original songs that bridged a gap between rock and country. The EP’s focus track “We’re All Livin’ The Dream” had its World Premier on CMT and kick started the summer touring with many of the nations biggest festivals including 5 Live Nation Country Fests featuring monster acts like Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, The Cadillac Three, Aaron Lewis. and many more.

The band is currently playing shows, writing songs, and in the studio recording new material to be released during 2018 and beyond.
