Donovan Woods live at Borderline

DHP Family Presents:
Donovan Woods
Live at Borderline

With more than 11 million streams on Spotify, songwriter Donovan Woods compositions have been lauded as “a very simple beauty” (Entertainment Weekly), “a stark, stunning ballad” (Rolling Stone), and “an emotional wallop” (Billboard Magazine). In

his latest single, “All Mine,” Woods discovers the elusive silver lining – that beautiful moment when you realize you’ve broken free of someone else’s expectations.

However, the optimistic single represents more than a new perspective for the musician. “All Mine” breaks the familiar acoustic guitar with a layered production, yet it’s unmistakably a Donovan Woods song – eloquent, disarmingly honest, and rich in details.

Even when his singing voice gently rises just above a whisper, it cannot be ignored. His single “What Kind of Love Is That?” climbed to No. 1 on the CBC Top 20 Chart and the album Hard Settle, Ain’t Trouble received a Polaris Prize nomination as well as a JUNO Award nod for Songwriter of the Year. He followed that project with an exceptional foursong EP, They Are Going Away.

“‘All Mine’ is about the feeling of suddenly emerging from something that’s been weighing you down,” Woods says. “Sometimes it’s that first day of good health after an illness, sometimes it’s after a breakup, sometimes it’s just the first day of spring. I think one of the only purely good human feelings is relief – when something difficult ends or when something bad could have happened but didn’t. That feeling is what I’m trying to capture here, that moment of realization that time is on your side again. You dodged a bullet and for a moment you feel free, clear-eyed, and ready to turn that passing hardship into something beautiful.”

Tickets will go on sale on Friday the 16th of January at 10am from TicketWeb UK and Alt Tickets.
