Royal Wood 

The Waiting (Maple Music)

With The Waiting, Toronto-based songwriter Royal Wood stakes his claim to a broader audience than his first two full-length releases and two EPs have earned. And that’s no slight against his earlier work---“A Mirror Without” from A Good Enough Day remains his finest four minutes, 39 seconds ---but there’s a wider reach to this collection of songs, marrying his typically heart-worn and -warming lyrics and his distinct piano signatures with the bigger, orchestral sounds provided by Sarah McLachlan and Rufus Wainwright producer Pierre Marchand. Witness the gorgeous statement “On Top of Your Love,” now getting big play on CBC Radio 2, the sublimely hooky “Do You Recall” or the lovely, fragile “Lady in White,” doubtlessly bound for many future matrimonial ceremonies.
