Royal Wood Lands at The Mack

CBC Music has called Royal Wood “the best performer in Canada right now” and the LIVE @ the Centre favourite returns to the Island April 29 and 30 at The Mack. Since being proclaimed Songwriter of the Year by iTunes five years ago, the pop star has continued to evolve – maintaining an unmistakable identity while uncovering and reinventing his sound over six studio recordings.

Royal Wood followed a 2013 Juno nomination with the release of Ghost Light in 2015, which debuted atop the Canadian charts, and his national tour brings him to Charlottetown for a two-night stand.
