The Bros. Landreth earned their first JUNO for their debut, Let It Lie, which won for Roots Traditional Album of the Year in the group category.

“Leave it to a group of Canadians to dish up some of the best Southern-style blues we wolfed down all weekend. …a quiet storm of slide guitar solos, blue notes, three-part harmonies…” Rolling Stone: 20 Best Things We Saw at Americana Music Fest 2014
With a voice as notable as his lyrics, Donovan Woods is a critically acclaimed and in-demand Canadian recording artist, performer and songwriter. His third record, “Don’t Get Too Grand”, featuring the hit single “Put On Cologne” garnered radio airplay around the world, and was nominated for “Roots & Traditional Album of the Year” at the 2014 Juno Awards. Splitting his time between Nashville and Toronto, Woods’ versatile songs have been recorded by everyone from Canadian indie artists to established stars like Tim McGraw or Alan Doyle (Great Big Sea), and been featured in television shows, major motion pictures and commercials. Piercingly honest and quietly anthemic, Woods sings with a striking sense of the world that produced him – the unsung towns of Canada’s industrial heartland. The result is music that’s transporting, but never loses the dry, self-deprecating humour that has endeared Woods to audiences from the start.
