Donovan Woods is a notable Nashville singer-songwriter coming from folk and country roots, with credits by Billy Currington, Charles Kelley, Tim McGraw and Charlie Worsham.
Woods’s new album Both Ways, highlighting the push-and-pull aspect of life, especially in relationships, unfolds with acoustic instruments and Woods’s quietly compelling delivery. He shows the rare ability to distill complicated situations and emotions into songs that are intriguing and relatable throughout his album, showing the importance of leaving lyrics open to interpretation. A number of the songs are guitar-driven. Yet they stop short of full-blown rock ‘n’ roll.
This masterful perspective coming from Woods himself, has led to nominations for the Polaris Prize and the Juno Awards. While his catalog has accrued nearly 45 million streams, he also has the accomplishment of having his single “What Kind of Love Is That?” climb to No. 1 on the CBC Top 20 Chart.
