Recently named one of SiriusXM’s class of 2021, Royal & The Serpent is an acclaimed live performer, wrapping her first cross-America this fall. Supporting PVRIS, DEATHBYROMY and playing at Firefly festival and EMO NITE Vegas, Royal & The Serpent is quickly becoming known for her show stopping, high energy live performance. Royal & The Serpent will be supporting grandson on his DEATH OF A TOUR 2022 tour, see full routing below and visit for more details and tickets.

In each piece of music she shares with the world, Royal reveals the wild duality at the heart of her artistry and speaks to the incredible power of embracing your true nature, in all its outrageous complexity. A Gemini to the core, she’s passionate but pensive, sensitive but self-possessed, enigmatic but an open book when it comes to exposing what’s inside her mind. “I definitely feel like I’m two people living in one body, where I can just slip at the drop of dime and become a totally different person,” notes Santiago, who equally identifies as a “sweet sunshine angel” (i.e., the Royal persona) and a “freaky devil maniac” (the Serpent).


With boundary pushing lyrics and palpable energy, she has an onstage spirit that has fans referring to her as ‘Lady Cobain,’” wrote Ones To Watch. “The duality she expresses makes her both relatable and captivating, as she unapologetically shares a full spectrum of experience, from royal soul to luring serpent. Royal delivers the perfect combination of funk and grace in a sweet sound rich with hypnotic melodies.”
