Declan O\'Donovan Performance at The Cameron House
With a raw, gritty and unique voice and a recent international song-writing award, singer/pianist Declan O’Donovan is poised to launch his solo career with a new self-titled alt roots/blues album and a cross-Canada tour. To celebrate the release of his new CD, O’Donovan will be performing at The Cameron House in Toronto on October 9.
Born and raised in the Yukon Territory, O’Donovan has lived part-time in both Whitehorse and Montreal since 2007. Over the last two decades he has performed, collaborated and recorded with numerous bands; most notably the beloved Yukon-based alternative blues/rock group Scotch.
O’Donovan’s new CD features nine original tracks that are a mix of blues, jazz, rock and roots music. A master songwriter and story teller, O’Donovan’s poignant lyrics and distinctive voice often draw comparisons to early Tom Waits. Recently, he won the blues category of the West Coast Songwriters International Songwriting Competition for “Cheap Souvenir”, a song from the CD. O’Donovan’s talents as an energetic and accomplished pianist are also highlighted on the disc.

“Although comparisons to Tom Waits can be made, O’Donovan has a unique voice, and is emerging as an internationally-recognized songwriter and equally skilled as a musician.”
