The new touching and heartwarming, coming of age track from Donovan Woods has been praised by NPR, Rolling Stones and Billboard for its warm and melodic tones. “Way Way Back” was written entirely by Donovan Woods and produced by Todd Clark, the track successfully conveys this beautifully juxtaposes love story witch feels both new and familiar in this coming of age story of a long lost love. “Way Way Back” marks Donovan’s first release since winning Roots Album of the Year at the Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA) and 2019 JUNO Award for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year. The track explores the peculiar concept that old sexual partners seem to occupy in everyone’s mind and how hard it is to escape the comfort and nostalgia that memory lane offers. “Way Way Back” is the perfect example of this push and pull between the risky excitement of something new and the ease of something familiar.
“Way Way Back” is available for streaming everywhere.

Originally from Venezuela, I developed a natural love for music, vibrant colors, food and travel. I have a passion for high energy and fast pace environments, its where I feel most at home and the reason I wake up in the mornings.
Sharing these reasons is why I do photography because there is no better way to communicate experiences, feelings or places
