Meet the The Royce Twins

Gabriel and Michael Saalfield are The Royce Twins. Gabriel is the older of the two, by just 6 minutes. The Twins have been performing and singing together for as long as both can remember. Gabriel plays the drums, acoustic guitar and saxophone. Michael plays acoustic and electric guitars and likes to dabble on the keyboard. Both sing. Both song write.

At University, the Twins began live performances at hotels and clubs. In 2013, the Twins entered X Factor Australia. After sharing a highly personal story about losing both parents at a young age, they went on to perform a cover of “I won’t give up” that hit the top 40 charts. The song now has now had over 7.5 million YouTube views at the time of writing.

Following that experience, The Royce Twins decided to set up their website and crowd fund their Debut EP. The Twins reached their target in January 2014 and began recording in March 2014.

The Royce Twins - Debut EP delivers five slices of their unique sound, showcasing four brand new songs written and performed by the Twins: “Heartstrings”, “Brave”, “Fly” and “Suzie Royce”. The additional EP track was a studio recorded version of “I won’t give up”. The EP is available on iTunes and Google Play, and the CD through Waterfront Records. The Debut EP caught them some attention within the AIR independent music charts their song “Fly” made it to the semi-finals of the International Song writing Competition in the Pop/Top 40 Category.

An unplugged version “Heartstrings” was released as a surprise single on Valentine’s Day 2015.


The Royce Twins also this year jumped back into the studio to record and release “We will be the rain” a tribute they wrote to their grandfather and to those that have and continue to serve in our defence forces.

The Twins are presently in the process of writing their debut album and continue to perform live around Victoria.
