Royal Jackets

Bio

Royal Jackets were sewn together in 2012 by long term session drummer Josh Sorenson. Josh tutors in music and has played and recorded with an array of New Zealand artists including Sola Rosa, Nathan Haines, King Kapisi, Hammond Gamble and Hello Sailor. Josh’s jazz/funk background brings the groove to Royal Jackets sound.

Long term session guitarist Ben Jurisich also tutors and has played support slots for musical legends such as Eric Clapton, Bryan Ferry, Jeff Beck and Joan Armatrading. Ben also recorded with Iggy Pop and has played with many well-known New Zealand artists including Anika Moa, Julia Deans, Debbie Harwood and Jonny Love. Ben brings the rocking riffs with a touch of blues.

Bassist Matt Harvey has preformed in several bands and toured extensively around New Zealand playing a wide range of festivals and venues. Matt has also supported international artists such as John Mayer, Jimmy Barnes and Eric Clapton. Matt’s early musical roots were in jazz but has since developed into a diverse rock n roller adding complexities to the rhythm section.

New entrant Jono Ashwell brings surrealistic story driven lyrics with a 70's/90’s melodic rock feel. Jono is a recent graduate of musical studies. With his wild creativity there’s no telling what he will unleash.

Royal Jackets have opened for classic pacific rockers Hello Sailor, 80’s pop hit makers The Narcs and modern rockers I Am Giant.
