|New Rome EP|
very polished in deed ...I think you gonna like it. Since RCA signed him and released his debut album in 1997, which went on to sell over half a million copies in the U.S.,mainly on the strength of the single "I Belong to You (Everytime I See Your Face)", he has quietly put out some nice albums.
A new name to myself is Jerrod Lawson, this self titled album has just hit the streets, and very good it is to! Thanks to Mickey for bringing this to my attention. My good friend Bradd Marquis has teamed up with in demand soul-stress Tess Henley for his latest endevour, have to say what a great combination, "Break Up" is a fine piece of work and very radio friendly.
All in all quite a bit of new music this week but don't worry I still have your quota of classics included!
Please remember to share the Science of Soul link as it wont cost you a penny and music is a timeless gift to give, on with the show sit back relax and enjoy..

Woods sang in a cover band called Fire & Ice while a high schooler, and toured regionally both as a solo artist and with the band. He attended Oakwood University but dropped out in 1989 and moved to California in hopes of making a career as a singer. He toured with Vesta but had little success until he met with Gerald Baillergeau and Victor Merrit, the producers who heard his demo and sent it to RCA Records. RCA signed him and released his debut album in 1997, which went on to sell over half a million copies in the U.S., mainly on the strength of the single "I Belong to You (Everytime I See Your Face)", which peaked at #6 in the U.S. He had two Top 40 hits from the album.
Having achieved success with his RCA Records debut, a projected second album was rejected. Instead, he signed a distribution deal with Ground Level for his own label follow-up - Rome2000: Thank You, but the material recorded while under contract to RCA has never been released. In 2001 he returned with two albums: To The Highest and To Infinity (Thank You); the last one is just an alternative edition of Rome2000: Thank You. Do It followed in 2003, and three years later Sony issued Rome's Best Of, which has only 10 songs from his 1997 debut. (wikipedia)
