Both Ways


Donovan Woods' new album is a study in contrasts, as one would expect from its name: Both Ways. "What started the idea was people telling me, 'You can't have it both ways.' Or, 'You can't have a record full of thoughtful lyrics that also gets played on the radio. You can't have those things both ways.' This is just me trying to have both." That push-and-pull, especially in relationships, has long been Woods' stock in trade. It's a perspective that has led to nominations for the Polaris Prize and Juno Awards, and a catalogue with over 60 million streams. Woods is also a notable songwriter in Nashville with credits by Billy Currington, Charles Kelley, Tim McGraw and Charlie Worsham.

A number of the songs are guitar-driven, yet they stop short of full-blown rock 'n' roll. Produced by James Bunton (Ohbijou, The Hidden Cameras), the album also includes a duet with Rose Cousins called "I Ain't Ever Loved No One."

"In the tradition of the great storytelling songwriters the Dylans, Cohens, Prines and Kristoffersons of this world Woods manages in just those thirty-two words to open up a whole world of not terribly optimistic narrative possibilities." FRUK
