Donovan Woods and The Opposition
May 16, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Special Guest Opener: Wild Rivers
Donovan Woods’ 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 Woods’ stock in trade. As the lead track of Both Ways , “Good Lover” unfolds with acoustic instruments and Woods’ 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.
Woods is also a notable Nashville writer with credits by Billy Currington, Charles Kelley, Tim McGraw and Charlie Worsham. NPR Music stated, “There are very few writers who can make you laugh and break your heart in the same song.” No Depression noted that Woods’ style is “as fresh and captivating as any out there.”
