Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Royal Wood is set to perform at the historic Astra
Theatre on Saturday, February 18. The performance, presented by Jasper Community Arts, will begin at 7:30 PM.

Wood has established himself as a true musical talent. Since being proclaimed “Songwriter of the Year” by
iTunes (2010), Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft while maintaining a unique identity.
With his eighth full-length studio album, 2022’s What Tomorrow Brings, Wood reaches new emotional depths
and delivers his most powerful collection of music to date. “Although it was finished before the pandemic even
began, the time I had during those unpredictable years allowed me to dig deep and fine-tune the album in a way
I’ve never been able to before. I know, without a doubt, this is the best work of my career.”

Royal Wood has received multiple JUNO nominations, 5 Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, and a #1
added song at Hot AC. Having seen high-profile features on programs such as Grey’s Anatomy and Private
In practice, his catalogue has amassed over 15 million streams worldwide. Most recently, the Danish manufacturer
VELUX utilized the 2007 single “A Good Enough Day” in a promotional campaign, generating a surge of
newfound fans across Europe. Capturing the same sonic and emotional depth of these recordings, Wood
translates his songs into astounding live performances. This live prowess has led to performances in world-class
venues and support-billing for globally-celebrated artists such as Bonnie Raitt and David Gray.

Following a headline performance at Toronto’s iconic Massey Hall, Royal Wood released his latest album, What
Tomorrow Brings, in November 2022. Crafted alongside world-renowned producers Linda Perry (Adele, Alicia
Keys, Christina Aguilera) and Jamie Scott (Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber), the album draws from deeply personal
points in Wood’s life, effectively capturing the emotion of these moments. “During the writing of this album, I
lost a parent, fell in love, got married, and became a father. These experiences definitely allowed me to write
from a place of pure vulnerability and create the most carefully crafted and inspired lyrics of my career.”

What Tomorrow Brings has received critical praise and support across both Radio and Digital Streaming
Platforms. Respective singles have featured on Sirius XM’s North Americana and Stingray Radio’s Adult
Alternative, Pop Adult, and Canadian Indie. Digitally, singles have seen placements on various editorial playlists
such as Spotify’s New Music Friday Canada, Every Day Favourites, Contemporary Blend, indie pop & chill, Folk &
Friends; Apple Music’s New In Singer/Songwriter, Breaking Singer-Songwriter, and New in Singer-Songwriter;
and Amazon Music’s Brand New Music, Fresh Folk & Acoustic, and Finely Tuned. Alongside the release of What
Tomorrow Brings, Wood also granted fans a behind-the-scenes look into the album with a Mini-documentary
that premiered via Exclaim! Now, along with an opening slot on Bonnie Raitt’s upcoming tour, Royal Wood continues to expand on the success of What Tomorrow Brings, approaching 200,000 Monthly Listeners on Spotify and garnering fans from around the world.
