Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Royal Wood has established himself as a true musical talent. Since being proclaimed “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft – maintaining an unmistakable identity while uncovering and reinventing his sound.
Royal has two albums that have debuted in the Top 30, multiple JUNO nominations, a 5-time Canadian Folk Music Award-nominee, and a #1 added song at Hot AC radio. His songs have been heard on high-profile sync placements like Grey’s Anatomy, and Private Practice. His career finds him headlining world-class venues like Massey Hall and Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto, The National Arts Centre in Ottawa, and The Winspear Centre in Edmonton. It also finds him supporting artists like Bonnie Raitt and David Gray on their national tours.
The past two years have not slowed Wood down. In 2021 he released a full-length album, Live at Massey Hall, a new single (“Say You Will”) and headlined several live streams with Canadian symphony orchestras. Recently completing an Alaskan tour, Wood kicked off a new year of music with the release of a reimagined version of the 80's hit “Tainted Love” and the announcement of his new full-length studio album. Recorded remotely in Toronto with Montreal-based producer Marcus Paquin (The National, Arcade Fire) the album "What Tomorrow Brings" features songs co-written with Linda Perry (Adele, Alicia Keys) and Jamie Scott (Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber). Set for release on November 4th, 2022 with Cordova Bay Records, the album release will coincide with a national headlining tour with dates that already include the National Arts Centre (Ottawa) and Massey Hall (Toronto).
Wood lives just outside of Toronto with his wife Alison and their two sons Henry and George.
