Massey Hall presents
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 Wood hasn’t let the pandemic slow him down. In the past year, he and his wife Alison had their first child; he headlined live stream concerts with several symphonies (including Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and the Niagara Symphony); and he released his Live at Massey Hall album.
Now he is wrapping up his busy year by recording his new full studio album remotely in Toronto with Montreal-based producer Marcus Paquin (The National, Arcade Fire). The album features songs co-written with the powerhouse Linda Perry (Adele, Alicia Keys) and UK phenom Jamie Scott (Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber). The new album will be released in January 2022 and will coincide with a national headline tour, including a return to Massey Hall.
