On Stage Concerts: Royal Wood


The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents On Stage Concerts: Royal Wood on Tuesday, January 21 at 7:30pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre.

Royal Wood’s career has been established with critical acclaim and impressive musical achievements.

His latest release We Were Born To Glory debuted in the Top 25 charts in Canada and was recently nominated for Adult Alternative Album of the Year at the 2013 Juno Awards. The single I Want Your Love reached No. 1 on the CBC Radio 2 charts for three solid weeks, and remained in the Top 20 for 14 weeks straight. His videos for Not Giving Up and The Glory both found heavy rotation on Much Music.

Royal Wood’s January 21st performance is the first of two On Stage Concerts scheduled this winter at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. With the audience seated cabaret style on the stage, this intimate concert is a unique and up-close-and-personal experience as Royal Wood performs with his four piece band. Known for his classic cabaret pop style, he brings class, charm and a gentleman’s demeanor to the stage.

A 2011 Juno nominee for Songwriter of the Year, a past recipient of the iTunes’ Songwriter of the Year, and finalist in the “International Songwriting Competition”, Royal has been asked to co-write with such notable artists as Randy Bachman (BTO, Guess Who), Colin James and Wayne Petti (Cuff the Duke).

His music has been used in several TV and Film productions, including major TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and Being Human. His abilities as a producer and an arranger were recognized on his 2010 release The Waiting, when iTunes and CBC Radio 2 named his record one of The Best Albums of the year.

His records have been released worldwide on Maple Recordings/Universal and Rounder Europe, and he has successfully toured in Canada, USA, Germany, France, The Netherlands, UK, Ireland and Italy. Wood has also supported national tours with David Gray, Sarah Harmer and Serena Ryder.
