Royal Wood's style is fanciful and ornate, like Rufus Wainwright's. His voice is equally elastic and kind of like Jeff Buckley's as well. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended first album:
The Milkweed EP is the only one we've heard
See Royal Wood's website for availability
Royal Wood—vocals, and all
Adam Hay—drums on 3 tracks
A very pleasant ep that has echoes of the pre-rock'n'roll era's songwriting. Royal Wood has a lot in common with Rufus Wainwright. Vocally he soars like Jeff Buckley.
