Locking in over 265 million streams to date and 1.5 million monthly listeners, JUNO Award-winner Donovan Woods paints themes of heartache, joy, connection, and redemption in vivid hues that inform a rich, visceral experience for his listeners. His lyrical talent for emotional transparency has made him a sought-after co-writer for artists like Tim McGraw and Billy Currington, just to name a few.
With "Clean Slate," Woods is now ready for an even wider international appeal, as he delivers a crossover hit that weaves his signature country-and-roots gravitas into a widescreen indie-rock feel. This wistful roots-pop track captures the early optimism of newfound love, and the innocent hope that things could be different this time around. "This is a love song about falling in love and how it makes you feel like you’re a new person," says Woods. "But slowly you realize you’re still the same person with all the hang-ups you’ve always had, and it’s a drag."
"Clean Slate" represents a new step forward for Woods, as he continues to impress audiences with his laid-back affect and a genuine talent for finding spiritual truth in the overlooked details of everyday life.
