Royal Wood

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 (2010), Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft – maintaining an unmistakable identity while uncovering and reinventing his sound.

With two albums debuting in the Top 30 and multiple JUNO nominations, Wood is a 5-time Canadian Folk Music Award-nominee whose songs have been heard on high-profile programs such as Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. Headlining world-class venues like Massey Hall and Roy Thompson Hall (Toronto), The National Arts Centre (Ottawa), and The Winspear Centre (Edmonton), Wood’s considerable talents have allowed him to share the stage with globally-celebrated artists Bonnie Raitt and David Gray, joining both as direct support 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 a three-week Alaska-wide tour and 16-date Western Canada run, 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 on 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.
