The last few years have brought upon many celebrated achievements in Royal Wood’s career. Since being proclaimed the “Songwriter of the Year”, by iTunes in 2008, Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft – maintaining an unmistakable identity while uncovering and reinventing his sound.
Proclaimed a prolific songwriter and one of Canada’s major talents by critics, fans and the industry alike, Wood released his 5th studio album “The Burning Bright” in 2014. The album registers a number of firsts for Wood, whose chart-topping 2012 release, the JUNO Award nominated We Were Born To Glory, firmly established him as one of the country’s most accomplished alt-pop singer/songwriters, producers, arrangers and multi-instrumentalists.
His latest single “Forever and Ever” was the #1 added song at HOT AC Radio in Canada and a Top 20 hit on CBC Radio 2. Making its debut in the fall of 2013 the track reached Top 5 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart and was chosen by the LCBO as the theme song for SHINE [On], their largest annual promotion and marketing campaign.
His music has also been featured in several TV and Film productions, including major television shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, bringing his sound to a variety of audiences.
