Holly Frances Royle on SoundBetter

Musician, composer, lyricist and vocalist who has been involved with acclaimed projects of a variety of genres from progressive metal to Gothic electronic.


I'm a musician from Chester, UK who loves the heavy and the unusual! My metal band, Disconnected Souls, experiments with pushing the boundaries of the metal genres by incorporating electronic and orchestral instruments differently. My Gothic electronic project, Sensory Enigma, draws on dark emotional themes in the lyrics and contrasting synth powered instrumentation.

I started keyboard and guitar lessons from an early age and I have been immersed in the world of music ever since. With experience in live performance, composition, lyric writing and recording, I would love to help you with your musical projects!

I have access to professional equipment for programming and recording.

Do get in touch if I can be of help!

All the best,
