Seismic-Sound’s Featured Band: The Royal Sea

March 2, 2012

The Royal Sea moves Seattle even closer to Southern California with a chimerical blend of guitar pop, jangle, and lovelorn sentimentality.” (Adam Costa,

The Royal Sea is a Seattle based up and coming band local to the Pacific Northwest. A quartet formed in early 2011 by front man Timmy Sunshine from the Bellingham based band The Conductors.

Band members include Timmy Sunshine on vocals and rhythm guitar, Theo Krantz as lead guitarist, Evan Kuykendall on bass, and Jettie Wilce on drums.

With a California 60s surf and garage rock vibe, their latest self-tilted album “The Royal Sea” encapsulates nostalgia of summertime and love all around. “Seattle band The Royal Sea’s debut album finds reverberating lines fusing with the swell and tower of guitar done up in implications of surf and other freeing backdrops.” ( The 6-track album was self released, recorded in Bellingham, WA with music producer Jeff DenAdel.

When describing their album, “The inspiration behind the project was to try something different. It was my first time picking up an electric guitar and the point of it all was to try out a new feeling reflecting on a 60s beach sound,” says front man Timmy Sunshine.  Their goal is to give their audience something to relate to lyrically by telling stories of summertime adventures and California Dreamin’.

Currently playing shows around the Seattle area, they provide a unique live experience with an upbeat environment, leaving the audience with an anticipation of what they are going to do next!
