Declan O’Donovan‘s sound is reflected by the picturesque backdrop between his home of Whitehorse, Yukon and the urban centres from Toronto to Montreal that he frequents. For over a decade, the Canadian has succeeded in creating stylistically unique fusions of the most diverse of songwriting approaches.
Albums with an eccentric richness of ideas like his self-titled debut (2012) or the larger-than-life ‘Broken Sky’ (2017) have made O’Donovan one of the most sought-after musicians in Canada. Comparisons range from Tom Waits to Randy Newman or Harry Nilsson, but of course don’t really do the creative maverick and his unmistakably rough timbre any justice.
