Donovan Woods’ work is guided by a mantra that only sounds simple: Good songs win. Raised in the small city of Sarnia, Ontario, Woods has amassed a catalogue of rousing and acclaimed music of his own while working with some of the top songwriters in North America to craft cuts for performers including Tim McGraw, Alan Doyle, Billy Currington and more. Woods has received international accolades, a growing number of fans inside and outside the music industry, a JUNO nomination (for his 2014 album, Don’t Get Too Grand), and reviews including statements like "Canada’s best-kept secret," "piercingly honest" and "quietly anthemic." His mastery of the songwriting craft places Woods squarely among the long line of great Canadian songwriters that have come before him. You can hear these forebears, and his contemporaries, in Woods’ music, but you can also hear the tradition being carried forward: Stripped down, but never simple; direct and poetic; new and timeless – all delivered with a confidence and in a voice that you wouldn’t expect from someone as young, approachable, or humorous as Woods.
