ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Artistic influences can be a curious mix of inheritance and inspiration. From a second-hand vinyl collection to an intuited sense for music's creation, Royal Wood has come a long way from the days of borrowed instruments and secondhand cassette tapes. This self-taught multi-instrumental artist has an ear for everything, from Sgt. Pepper's to Vince Guaraldi. Royal draws from generations past but not forgotten; his music sensibility is timeless but never dated.

Like a ribbon of Super 8 tape that contains blurry, sun-saturated summer memories, Royal's piano-soaked style is unapologetically romantic and unabashedly nostalgic. This filmic quality has made for an easy transition to film and television, and Royal's music has been included in many high-profile soundtracks as a result.

The sweet melancholy of loves lost and found diffuses throughout Royal's two full-length albums and now two EPs, including the celebrated 2007 release A Good Enough Day, which brought rave reviews, international radio play, multiple European and US tours, and a recent sold-out appearance in Toronto, ON. Royal's touring resume also confirms a growing acknowledgement of his work among Canada's top musicians, exemplified by national invitations from Sarah Slean, Jill Barber and Serena Ryder.

Royal's approach harkens back to traditions of song crafting that go straight to the heart of the relationship an artist creates with an audience. As great songwriting defies the whimsies of a trend, Royal's classic songs explore the architecture of emotions upon which our most cherished relationships are built. Named an iTunes Songwriter of the Year in 2008, Royal's music shares an emotional immediacy with the listener that creates a lingering feeling of intimacy with his recordings and live performances.

With The Lost and Found EP, melody is once again at the forefront, casting lyrics and rich string arrangements in the filmic light of memories and dreams.

If you’re a fan of Paul McCartney’s more melancholy ballads you will love this EP of moving songcraft. With a round, effortless voice and beautifully understated piano skills, Royal Wood wins your heart and then breaks it. These nostalgic tunes are light in delivery but heavy with emotion. Wrapped in gentle touches of chamber pop production and lush string arrangements, each song feels both familiar and thrilling.
