Donovan Woods and The Opposition

| The Mack
Award-winning singer-songwriter Donovan Woods is becoming one of Canada's most revered songwriters. With his warm, sawdust-baritone, Woods tells stories both familiar and absurd, romantic and unpretentious, wrapped in the earnest shimmer of acoustic guitar strums. Quietly anthemic, intensely honest, this is campfire pop for the modern age.

Donovan’s new album is a study in contrasts, as one would expect from its name: Both Ways. That push-and-pull, especially in relationships, has long been his stock in trade. As the lead track of Both Ways, “Good Lover” unfolds with acoustic instruments and Donovan’ quietly compelling delivery — not what a listener might expect from the title alone.

That masterful perspective has led to nominations for the Polaris Prize and the Juno Awards. In addition, his single “What Kind of Love Is That?” climbed to No. 1 on the CBC Top 20 Chart, while his catalog has accrued nearly 45 million streams.

Donovan is also a notable Nashville writer with credits by Billy Currington, Charles Kelley, Tim McGraw and Charlie Worsham. No Depression noted that Woods’ style is “as fresh and captivating as any out there.”

“There are very few writers who can make you laugh and break your heart in the same song.”NPR Music
