Sarnia’s own award-winning folk and country singer-songwriter Donovan Woods will be releasing his brand new album, entitled Without People, on Nov. 6.
The noted local musician, who won a Juno Award for his album Both Ways, will be releasing his album with another purpose in mind: to support indie record stores and local businesses across the country.
To that end Woods has put together special indie-retailer exclusives for the vinyl release of his forthcoming album, with stores such as Sarnia’s Cheeky Monkey taking pre-orders for the CD and the limited edition coloured vinyl LP, which will include an autographed insert and a special note.
Woods has delayed launching the sale of the new album and merchandise to ensure that as many indie retailers as possible can take pre-orders, so that fans have the option of supporting their local record shop.
The top ten indie record stores with the most pre-orders by mid-October will win a Without People t-shirt bundle which will be used as a draw item.
As of Sept. 10, Cheeky Monkey – located at 130 Christina St. N. – will be taking pre-orders in person, by phone (519-332-0978) or by email at email@example.com.
