Royal Wood, Love Will Linger Review
Wood was born John Royal Wood Nicholson and raised in Lakefield, Ontario. Royal Wood, his performing name and his real middle names, were chosen in memory of his great-grandfather, Royal Rufus Wood, who died in 1962.That contrast of love and loss dominated the entire creative process in making the music for his EP titled Love Will Linger. Wood grew up in a household filled with music; his brother Luke Nicholson is also a singer-songwriter. He began playing piano by ear at the age of four and started lessons at age eight. With the support of his school music program, he had access to a variety of different instruments, and by his teens, he became a multi-instrumentalist well-versed in many different styles, including the guitar, bass guitar, drums, clarinet, and trumpet. After high school, Wood studied business at McGill University.
