Life is about balance but often we can get so caught up in the drama of every day interaction that we take for granted just being alive.”
It has been a road of accolades and accomplishments leading up to now. In 2008, Royal was crowned Songwriter of the Year by iTunes and in 2011 his album The Waiting earned a Juno Award nomination for Songwriter of the Year -- further establishing him among the elite of Canadian songwriting. He has also landed several major placements in TV shows like Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice.
Royal Wood has laid the foundation of his career by writing honest music to much critical acclaim. With the release of We Were Born To Glory he continues to win each fan through the intimate connection only a truly great songwriter can make with his audience.
