After a culmination of five weeks spent writing in his ancestral home of Ireland, and, for the first time, Los Angeles, it only seemed appropriate to have the JUNO nominated Royal Wood stop by the Music Canada office mid St. Patrick’s Day celebrations for a performance.
Royal played a set of songs from his newest album, The Burning Bright, which debuts tomorrow on iTunes. A few dozen festive people, including neighbours from the Liberty Village business community, had the opportunity to take in the set which included “It’s Only Love”, “Forever And Ever”, and “City Lights”, all of which are featured on The Burning Bright album. Our thanks to Charlotte Thompson of Red Umbrella PR as well, who handles publicity and proposed the performance, as well as Stature Films for putting together this live performance video.
Royal Wood’s EP record, The Burning Bright, has been said to capture his truest, most confident musical voice even as it chronicles an extraordinary year of tumult, travel and personal discovery. With a record so personal, and a product of multiple worlds, the anticipation of tomorrows release is high.
The Burning Bright is available now at MapleMusic.com.
