Caleb Hart and the Royal Youths

Caleb Hart and the Royal Youths is a reggae/funk/hip hop band based on Vancouver Island.

"The sound mastered by these guys is a team effort, plainly displayed in their immaculate performances. It's the combination of heart shared by each member of the band, and a flawless synchronicity of talent, skill, and simply soul." - Jessy Savage http://www.jessysavage.com/features/caleb-hart-and-the-royal-youths-road-to-riff

"When you can switch between singing reggae to soulful R&B to sounding just like Shaggy seemlessly, you’re going to blow some minds. Just watch his cover of Shaggy and Rayvon’s ‘Angel’. It’s no wonder his set with the Royal Youth’s at Sugar Nightclub won them a performance spot at Rifflandia. Hart also capped off his year winning a Western Canadian Music Award with his other band Tasman Jude. 2017 is already starting off hot as his voice is heavily featured in Illvis Freshly’s song ‘Upside Down’ playing in rotation on The Zone for January 2017’s Band of The Month. Caleb Hart went from someone I didn’t know anything about to being a name that has been practically seen everywhere within four months. This performance for Do250’s ‘Road To Riff Contest Showcase’ is a shining example of Hart’s vocal chops and stage presence." - Magmazing Music
