Royal Wood with Hannah Georgas

Singer-songwriter Royal Wood is back in Guelph on November 24 2010 for a show at Dublin Street United with special guest, Vancouver based pop/roots performer, Hannah Georgas.

Through word of mouth, critical acclaim and impressive musical achievements, Royal Wood is quickly gaining an international audience. He is currently on a Canadian headline tour in support of his latest album, The Waiting.  The album appropriately begins with a song entitled “You Can’t Go Back.”  Based on the success of his career to date, who can argue with that. One of the hot acts at this year’s Hillside Festival, it’s pleasing to see that Wood finds time to come back to the Royal City on each tour.

“This record is about the duality of life and how at times, I seemingly waited for the mirrored experience to return,” says Wood. “I went through so many severe shifts personally and all of that turbulence led to serious thought and reflection. That is why these songs were born and why they are my most personal and introspective to date.” 

Royal Wood’s voice, songwriting and musical prowess has caught the ear of Pierre Marchand and led to Wood’s decision to let others into his creative universe. On previous albums (Lost And Found EP, A Good Enough Day, Tall Tales, and The Milkweed EP), Wood self-produced, arranged and played the vast majority of the instruments. Pierre Marchand, a heavy hitter best known for his work with Sarah McLachlan and Rufus Wainwright, produced three of The Waiting’s tracks. “I wanted someone who was going to push me artistically, get me out of my comfort zone”.

A mid-week show it may be, but at a very reasonable cost for tickets, you won’t want to miss it. Catch him while you can!
