Since the completion of volume one of his sophomore EP series, 'FIFTH: Dapper Liberation', songs such as 'Blue In June', 'My Air' and 'So Much' are winning the hearts of listeners near and far. Over the years, Royce's infectious live performances have afforded him opportunities to open for artists such as Brian McKnight, Talib Kweli, The Floacist, KRS One, K.

"As a content creator, I feel it is my mission to uphold the reasons I've been blessed with so many gifts. I think about youth who are similar to me and how my art can save lives, create positive dialogue and change, evoke thought and understanding, bridge community gaps and leave a legacy that traverses the spectrum of human existence. I want the way I make people feel to connect them to others, even in their assumed differences." - Royce Hall

'Front Porch Love' is a soulful call for the manifestation and affirmation of long-standing, deep-south, down-to-the-bone, sweet love. When I heard the track, all of my thoughts were that of sundresses, rocking chairs, front porches, dancing barefoot in the grass, beautiful brown skin with smiles and joy. Writing the song was an effortless experience. It conjured thoughts of the type of love-for-a-lifetime that I desire and am building.
