Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Royal Wood has established himself as a true musical talent. Since being proclaimed “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft – maintaining an unmistakable identity while uncovering and reinventing his sound.

Wood has two albums that have debuted in the Top 30, multiple JUNO nominations, 2-time Canadian Folk Music Award-nominee, and a #1 added song at Hot AC radio. His songs have been heard on high profile sync placements like Grey’s Anatomy, and Private Practice. Royal just completed a wildly successful and sold out cross country theatre tour opening for the legendary Bonnie Raitt.

Royal is currently touring the world in support of his critically acclaimed 2018 release, “Ever After The Farewell”.


Since 2007, Toronto local Justin Nozuka has released three albums and earned two JUNO nominations, one for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and one for Adult Alternative Album of the Year. His self-produced third album titled Ulysees (2014) demonstrated his talent for thoughtful exploration and bold reinvention. AllMusic rightly noted: "How he managed to unpretentiously transform himself from gentle soul-pop balladeer to ambient semi-classical song composer is just part of the mystery of this extremely talented young artist."

Nozuka's wistful crooning is a delight; he's an artist of relevance.



Zachary Lucky is unapologetically old-school country, armed with a husky, baritone voice - he carries himself like a younger Richard Buckner or a heartier Doug Paisley and often receives comparisons to songwriters such as Gordon Lightfoot and Kris Kristofferson. He sings of Canadian places and people as knowingly as he might Townes van Zandt or the Rio Grande. It's a relatable show on many levels, and conjures universal feelings that have passed through our collective timelines. Already hailed as a master storyteller by outlets ranging from no depression to the globe and mail, and recently nominated best solo artist of the year at the 2017 Canadian folk music awards, Lucky’s everywhere a man can be is his most powerful statement to date.
