Royal & the Serpent/Atlantic Records

Following the success of her pandemic anthem "Overwhelmed," Royal & the Serpent (Ryan Santiago) has pushed herself as an artist. Her macabre style and cinematic aesthetics are a perfect match for her mix of early 2000s rock and caffeinated pop.

This recent success has landed the New Jersey native collaborations with The Knocks and GAYLE. She talks to Jordan Edwards and Demi Ramos about the direction of her new EP, spirituality, and balancing her true self with her stage persona.

With her talent, high energy, and vintage style, Catie Turner quickly became an American Idol favorite. She didn’t win, but her seventh place finish was enough to earn a loyal fanbase.

But what happens after the show is over?

Watch Jordan Edwards and Demi Ramos talk to Turner about forging her own path, signing to a major label, and the success of her single “God Must Hate Me.”
