Twist And Shout

2022 EP release. Donovan Woods was in on the joke when he named his latest release. Riffing on a lyric from a Martin Simpson song ("Never Any Good"), Big Hurt Boy is a six-song exploration of how our failures - and our fixations on them - not only shape but enlighten us. Or you could think of it this way: Woods' deep curiosity about the human condition is why we so clearly hear our own stories in his. The details differ, the characters change, but at their core, Donovan Woods songs are for and about everyone. That's particularly apparent on this EP. Trying to capture more of an "undone" quality, Woods wanted his latest songs to "get back to the feeling that my early recordings had." You hear that in the spare, subtle ache of "No Time Soon," an acoustic monologue Woods describes as "the story of my whole life."
