Thoughout 2016, Caveboy turned heads on a supporting tour with Dear Rouge and Rah Rah, and electrified audiences with showcases at Pop Montreal, CMJ, SXSW and CMW. Caveboy continued to make waves into the Summer festivals with performances at Glowfair, Sound of Music, Hillside, Pride Toronto and Osheaga, Rifflandia and at CIMA's Canadian Music Cafe. With a powerful live set not to be missed, Caveboy are the band you'll be talking about the next day.
Donovan Woods was raised in the small city of Sarnia, Ontario, to the sounds of country music, with a healthy dose of folk and pop, a combination that instilled in him a strong belief in the power of a good melody, the importance of everyday language and the potential of a carefully-crafted song. While amassing a catalogue of rousing and acclaimed music of his own, he has worked with some of the top songwriters in North America to craft cuts for performers ranging from Tim McGraw and Alan Doyle to Billy Currington.
