DeWayne Woods & When Singers Meet
My Lyric's Life

For the better part of the last fifteen years, one of the industry's most consistent vocalists has been DeWayne Woods. Whether as a background singer for John P. Kee and Donald Lawrence, music director for several recordings, or lead vocalist on his own work, Woods has consistently made a significant impact in this industry.

CD Woods' long awaited debut release produced the hit "Let Go", garnering him three Stellar Awards in 2008 including the prestigious "New Artist of the Year". Now Woods, along with his group When Singers Meet, returns with his highly anticipated sophomore release, My Life's Lyric.

Ten tracks strong, Woods offers a presentation that showcases undeniable growth and musical progress.

Returning to a familiar formula, he reunites with Grammy-award winning producer PJ Morton for three of the album's tracks. This same combo produced the smash hit "Let Go", and return here with the equally infectious "God Can", in which Morton shares lead vocals with Woods.

Don't miss the reggae-tinged, Morton-produced track "Lost", which is a new and exciting direction for Woods. Stellar Award winning producer Aaron Lindsey joins the production fray, producing the album's lead single, the Douglas Miller classic "Living on the Top".

Woods stretches his musical horizons on this album in rich and authentic ways. Don't sleep on the infectious CCM stylings of "Sovereignly Reign". Produced by Lindsey, this track has 'hit' written all over it and showcases another side of the artist. The contemporary/pop feel of the track is not far-fetched for Woods conceptually — it also works extremely well in reality. Woods continues in the same vein with the inspirational "It Might Be Hope", penned by Sara Groves. This anthem has both crossover and movie soundtrack appeal and is a sure fire hit.

Another guaranteed hit is the feel-good track "Good Times". Written by James Poyser and Daniel Johnson, it fuses the best of the 70s with the best of modern-day church. Woods showcases his falsetto lead which is both clean and precise. This one has summer jam written all over it.

Other tracks to watch for include "What Kind of Love" and "Positive", featuring Daniel Weatherspoon.

My Life's Lyric in no way disappoints as Woods showcases great musical growth, providing music that is timeless in nature. No tricks, no gimmicks... just solid and great music that allows this project to live up to the hype and deserve prime space in your music collection.
