Donovan Woods | Portland, Maine
Canada is a nation of songwriters. While some countries are known for their products or their politics Canada is known for its songwriters. Well, that and snow and beavers! There has been a long line of songwriters that includes Hank Snow, Gene Maclellan, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian and Sylvia Tyson, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Ron Sexsmith. The list goes on and on.
We can now add Donovan Woods to that long list of great Canadian songwriters. Although I think he may cringe when he reads that I am putting him beside these great songwriters, he is a humble guy. But the proof is in the pudding, his songs are well crafted and beautiful. I dare you to listen to “They Don’t Make Anything in The Town” and not get a tear in your eye.
