Alan Doyle [website | Amazon.com] chalks up a lot of where is he right now—with both his third solo album and his second book released in October 2017—to luck. "I'm the luckiest guy I've ever even heard of," he says. "This was all I ever wanted, a life in the music business, singing concerts. I was lucky to be born in the family I was, in Petty Harbour. I was lucky that Sean, Bob and Darrell found me and asked me to join their band [Great Big Sea]. I was lucky the Canadian music fans were into it."
And yet, one listen to A Week at The Warehouse makes it plainly clear that there's a lot more than luck at play in this decades long, awards-studded career. This album, recorded live off the floor with Doyle's "beautiful band," as he calls them, with producer Bob Rock at the helm, is chock-a-block with country-tinged, radio ready tunes that bring with them the flavor of some of Doyle's favorite artists, from John Mellencamp to Rock's own band, Payolas. Doyle's desire was to have an album that sounded and felt like the live show, and A Week at The Warehouse does just that.
"I still think of myself as a person that has one job, a guy who plays in a band for a living, that's me. If someone asks me to write songs, I guess I'm a songwriter too. If someone asks me to produce a record for them, then I guess I'm a record producer too. I never looked for an acting job in my life—they come to me. Someone calls who needs a hairy, Irish-looking fellow to bully someone or play the lute, come throw rocks at Colin Farrell, okay, sounds fun. It's a laugh. Books came to me the same way, Random House said, we've been reading your blog, why not write a book [Doyle is the author of 2014's Where I Belong: Small Town to Great Big Sea and 2017's A Newfoundlander in Canada: Always Going Somewhere, Always Coming Home], so I thought okay!" There's more to it than all of that, for certain, but Doyle parries it off, in his usual way. "I'm grateful to do all of it. It's a wonderful life and I'm very lucky to have it."
With more than 14.5 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.
Woods was raised in the small city of Sarnia, Ontario, to the sounds of country music, with a healthy dose of folk and pop influence. This combination instilled in him a strong belief in the power of a memorable melody, the importance of everyday language, and the impact of a relatable narrative. Woods built his reputation by writing music that is a product of both country and folk. However, his songwriting shows how distracting the line separating the two can be. Whether they're composed about big ideas or seemingly minor incidents, broken promises or the hint of romance, Woods' songs affect listeners deeply.
