Performed from the stage of Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts

Co-hosted by The Registry Theatre

From his debut ep Milkweeds through to his new cd Live at Massey Hall, Royal Wood is a singular voice in Canadian popular song.

Since being proclaimed “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, and his JUNO Award nomination, Royal Wood has continued to hone his musical craft, and is set to release his highly anticipated cd Live at Massey Hall with a launch concert live streamed from Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts.

With theatre venues projected to remain shuttered for the foreseeable future, the Oakville Centre has pioneered a profit-sharing agreement which will assist in fundraising for sister theatres, by inviting them to co-host the concert. This live stream is part of a series that will support other theatres who partner to present the Royal Wood concert broadcast live from the stage of the Oakville Centre.

Born and raised in Lakefield, Ontario, Royal grew up in a household filled with music, and began playing piano by ear at the age of four. With the support of his school music programme, by his teens he had become a multi-instrumentalist, including guitar, bass, drums, clarinet, and trumpet, and played all the instruments on his self-produced debut ep Milkweeds. That initial release garnered much critical acclaim, and critics drew comparisons with iconic songwriters such as Randy Newman and Tom Waits.

Displaying a musical sensibility with echoes from the Brill Building to The Beatles, and the emotional heft of a John Hiatt, Royal burst forth with the infectious pop songs of his first full cd Tall Tales. In 2010 he released the JUNO nominated The Waiting. Since then Royal’s music has continued to mature, and become more sophisticated, with arrangements that showcase his unique songwriting talents. From powerful ballads such as Something About You to upbeat fan favourite Forever and Ever, Royal Wood is the perfect accompaniment to your Friday evening.
