Biography

The Last Royals are a two piece band from New York City comprised of writer/producer Eric James and drummer extraordinaire Mason Ingram. The Last Royals are nascent, having only recently emerged from a joint project that brought the two musicians together in Spring 2010. The connection urged a new chapter in Eric’s career as a musician, evolving him from a solo artist who played under the moniker The Early Hours to one-half of a self-proclaimed pop band.

Originally an outlet from producing, co-writing and a previous production deal, The Last Royals began as an experiment inspired by the miles of NYC concrete that Eric James walked daily on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Recording in the early off-hours of the morning, James wrote and tracked one song per day for 8 days of self-described “urban walking music”. He posted the resulting A Week & A Day collection on iTunes under the name The Early Hours in early 2009.

Though the songs found their way into a number of commercial outlets (including MTV’s The Real World, Keeping Up With The Kardashians and a national Miller/7Eleven ad campaign), the initial concept of restrained laptop music left James yearning for bigger, organic beats. James recorded some additional tracks but was left looking for the right creative partner to complete the concept and bring his more aggressive, vibrant vision to life.
