Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer ROYAL WOOD has established himself as a true musical talent. Royal ceaselessly continues to evolve and hone his musical craft, earning multiple Juno Award nominations and the title of iTunes Songwriter of the Year along the way. Jumping between guitar, piano and ukulele, Royal “brings class and craft to his pop-rock stylings, delivering them with a rich and resonant voice” (CBC Music). Royal’s latest release, “Ever After the Farewell,” is an ode to the classic styles of both Tin Pan Alley and Laurel Canyon. The album was influenced by the loss of his father and meeting the love of his life, both in the course of a single year. That journey gave a new meaning to Royal’s career, where creativity and performance will continue to shine and cultivate his trajectory, no matter where it leads. As the Juno nomination committee says, Royal “continues to win each fan through the intimate connection only a truly great songwriter can make with his audience.”
It's 21st century skills that they need to have the rest of their lives. It's not just something that when they leave fourth grade, they are done with it.
