Dans une même année, l’auteur-compositeur-interprète Royal Wood a perdu son père, mais a aussi trouvé l’amour et s’est marié. C’est cette gamme d’émotions contradictoires qu’il aborde sur son plus récent opus Ever After The Farewell. Produit avec les grands de l’industrie sur la console des Beatles qui a servi à enregistrer Abbey Road, Royal Wood offre un puissant hommage à son père défunt ainsi qu’à son épouse.
Une soirée folk riche en textes puissants et en émotions vous attend.
Life has a way of knocking on our door on the days we least expect it. For singer songwriter Royal Wood, life knocked pretty damn hard. For in the same year that he lost his father to illness, he also fell in love and got married.
As an artist, Royal channeled these polar opposite emotions into his new album Ever After The Farewell. Recorded in London, UK, with Jamie Scott (known for his work with renowned artists like Rag’n Bone Man, Michael Kiwanuka, Niall Horan and Ed Sheeran), Royal’s album is not only deeply inspired by both loss and love, but is an ode to the classic styles of both Tin Pan Alley and Laurel Canyon.
To capture the rawest possible sound, most of the songs on the album were recorded the day they were written, with Royal playing the majority of the instruments. As fate would have it, Royal recorded the album on the Beatles EMI console that made Abbey Road possible. “Every day I walked into the studio in London UK with the ghosts of my musical heroes sitting beside me,” said Royal. “All of my life I wanted to make music with the Beatles, and now I feel like I have,” he joked.
When asked about the album title and artwork, Royal said “I called the album ‘Ever After The Farewell’ because I wanted the title to encompass the polar opposite emotions I felt in my life while creating the music. I said farewell to my father, but I started the journey of ever after with my wife. We used the man and woman’s hands on the cover because they represent both my hand taking my wife’s hand in marriage, and my father’s leaving my mother’s.”
