Product Description

It was 2007 when Toronto singer/songwriter Donovan Woods released 'The Hold Up'; an album that Exclaim! called an engaging and articulate window into the heart of an extremely unique writer. Three years later, Donovan has pushed his 'gruff but surprisingly tender' voice up front in the 12 songs of this year's 'The Widowmaker'. This time around, expect touches of piano, banjo, synth tones and female backing vocals to his signature acoustic guitar led songs. A great follow-up showcasing the growth of a talented songwriter. Donovan Woods was born in Sarnia Ontario in 1980. In accordance to family tradition, he was named after his father s favourite musician, Donovan Leitch. Donovan's appreciation of music was encouraged early in life as his father sat him down for weekly music listening sessions and soon bought him his first guitar. He studied acting during high school and went on to study dramatic performance at the University of Guelph and the Academy at the Stratford Festival of Ontario. However, as he puts it, his life always seems to push him back to his adoration of music. He describes his music as an amalgamation between the folk music he grew up on and the pop music he couldn't stop himself from listening to during the late 90s. His music is intense, melodic and conveys a sense of great urgency.

Review

His literate sensitivity...has going for it one of those breathy indie-folk-singer voices that lures the ladies en masse. --Toronto Star

A little bit Dan Mangan, a little bit Ryan Adams, Woods pens and delivers tunes like a pro. --Now Magazine

There is something magical about a man and a guitar that doesn't need tricks to make you keep listening. Donovan Woods has that magic. --Herohill.com

I'm so glad I bought this album! Donovan has such a wonderful voice, and the instrumental background is just so fun and folky. If you want just a sample, I highly recommend listening to "Let Go Lightly"
