Award winning recording artist DeWayne Woods is spreading the word about his rousing new radio single, “Never Be The Same,” his first radio single in three years. The song reunites Woods with Maroon 5’s P.J. Morton who composed and produced Wood’s 2007 breakthrough radio smash, “Let Go.” Woods has released a lyric video for “Never Be The Same” that is now on You Tube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5sfBsT6EHc&feature=youtu.be and the Mp3 is available on iTunes at http://smarturl.it/gyifl4.
The song anchors Woods’ forthcoming third solo CD that’s expected to release in late 2014 via his Soul Therapy Music Group (Central South Distribution). Woods has already tapped the legendary R&B band Mint Condition (of “What Kind of Man Would I Be?” and “Breakin’ My Heart” fame), Gerald Haddon (who produced Isaac Carree’s #1 hit “In The Middle”) and Houston-based producer, Zeke Listenbee, who has written for Dorinda Clark Cole, to produce various tracks on the set.
A Kansas City, MO native, Woods began his career as a background vocalist for the likes of Celine Dion, Kirk Whalum and John P. Kee. He signed with the Quietwater label in 2006 under the guidance of executive producer Donald Lawrence and released his debut CD “Introducing DeWayne Woods & When Singers Meet” that garnered the Top 5 radio smash “Let Go” that was named Song of the Year and Urban Inspirational Single of the Year in the 2008 Stellar Awards. Woods also walked away with New Artist of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year Stellar Awards. His sophomore “My Life’s Lyric” CD debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart and spawned the radio hit “Living on the Top.” Last year, Woods made headlines when he was featured in a national PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) media campaign targeting animal cruelty.
