Filmed At London’s THE GRAND THEATRE

JUNO Award nominated and critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, producer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Royal Wood announced today the February 10th release of “Royal Wood Live At The Grand” – a live concert DVD via Maple Music Recordings/Fontana North. Filmed on location at The Grand Theatre in London, ON, the DVD features Wood, one of Canada’s most accomplished and celebrated artists, at the forefront of the pop genre – widely noted for both his rich and ambitious vocals as well as his musical flexibility.

Produced by Wood and directed and edited by Mitch Fillion (Live At Massey Hall, Southern Souls), “Royal Wood Live At The Grand” encompasses a timeless collection of songs spanning Wood’s career – capturing his truest and most confident vocals to date. Packed with breathtakingly poignant moments, the DVD includes songs from Wood’s newest album “The Burning Bright” and new songs and arrangements from the companion album “I Wish You Well” both of which Wood says “are some of the most connected and personal creations of my life.”

As compelling as he is infectious, Wood recently released the music video for his third single – the melodic and lyrical “I’m Afraid”, and will return to the road later this month for a handful of dates throughout the prairies including Saskatoon and St Albert in addition to Nanaimo on March 1st (see below for full list of dates).
