In episode #73 of The XS Noize Podcast, Mark Millar catches up with JUNO Award-winning singer-songwriter Donovan Woods.

Along with his work as an in-demand songwriter, whose work has been recorded by the likes of Tim McGraw ("Portland, Maine") and Lady A's Charles Kelley ("Leaving Nashville"), and co-writes with a diverse group of songwriters, such as Tom Douglas, Lori McKenna, Brandy Clark, Ashley Monroe, Dustin Christensen, Femke Weidema, Steve Robson, and Ed Robertson (Barenaked Ladies), a budding truth about Woods has emerged. As respected as he is as a solo artist, he's evolving and upending our expectations of how his music sounds.

His songs have grown more dimensional, emboldened by new sonic landscapes, reminding us that classic songwriting transcends genre. In this interview, songwriter Donovan Woods talks about his new Big Hurt Boy EP, songwriting, his love for Oasis, and more.
