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” to debut in the Top 30 Canadian Charts. The album registered a number of firsts for Wood to go alongside his chart-topping 2012 release, the
JUNO Award nominated “We Were Born To Glory”; an album that firmly established him as one of the country’s most accomplished alt-pop singer/songwriters, producers, arrangers and multiinstrumentalists.
His 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 [Ontario], 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. Greatly admired, Wood’s records have been released worldwide on Maple Music Recordings/Universal, Rounder Europe and Toy Town Records in the UK, and he has successfully toured in Canada, USA, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Switzerland, UK, Ireland and Italy. Wood has also supported national tours with David Gray, Sarah Harmer and Serena Ryder and has headlined venues across the world – selling out dates along the way. On April 22, 2016 Wood will release his enigmatic new record ‘GHOST LIGHT.’ It features artists such as Hannah Georgas and Felicity Williams (Bahamas) who add their special blend of talents to the album. Birthed in Los Angeles and Toronto, with Bill Lefler and Royal at the production helm ‘GHOST LIGHT’ has given a new meaning to Wood’s career, where creativity and performance will continue to shine and cultivate his trajectory – no matter where it leads.
