Take Aim: Amy Sciarretto vs. The New Royales' Erik Alcock

The New Royales are awesome. Their singer Liz Rodrigues duets with Eminem on "Survival." But her band is equally as interesting. We nabbed some with Erik Alcock, who is our new crush. For today!
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
The New Royales are a international band based in Los Angeles, Toronto and Vancouver that have written songs for artists such as Eminem and Pink and are getting ready to release an album in 2014.
If you were not doing music, you would be…
I would probably be beating my head against a wall trying to be a novelist, whisky in hand...
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
Besides music, my two other loves would have to be literature and history. I'm also not too shabby at putting together a decent cocktail with whatever's at hand.
Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
Hmmmmmm... 'Spectacular Crime' was written and recorded for the most part in my old apartment on Bloor Street in Toronto through the built in mic on my MacBook (the "drums" are actually me hitting the back of an acoustic like a bongo) and I'd be surprised if you couldn't hear a bus or two going by on a soloed vocal track.
Finish this sentence: New Royales are the artist that…
…would never agree on what one album they'd get to have on a deserted island.
