Canadian balladeer/singer/songwriter/producer, ROYAL WOOD, comes through in spades with this simple yet very much poignant visuals for his single ‘Photograph’. Written together with Jessica Mitchell, wrote this song about losing his father to Alzeimer’s and the significance his photograph has had in his life. For strength, remembrance, for the will to go forward with the memories of a loved one by your side.
“Losing my father to Alzheimer’s and the significance the photographs of him have meant to my family in not only mourning his loss, but in celebrating his life. Death comes to us all and the lives lost should be remembered. I’m grateful that I still have the days gone past with my father alive and well in his photographs.”
The single is off of his new EP ‘Love Will Linger’ and marks the 2nd release for the 2018 calendar year. The EP follows his LP ‘After The Farewell’ which dropped in April 2018.
Loss and, time dependent, retrieval of accepting, is a long process. The right support system around you, your soul can rise again to meet the demands of the living. With a solid footing steadied again, and now enhanced with the thought of your loved one still loving you from another place, the days brighten and strengthen.
It’s a message we think that Royal has embedded in ‘Photograph’ purposefully – in deep empathy, for who can relate.
‘Photograph’ is a beautiful folk based single that just elevates with Royal’s emotive vocal excellence.
