Tonia Woods: Fruition (Double-O Productions, 1999)

Another Obscure find from Napo in and around the Virginia Beach area. Woods is a modern soul/jazz artist based out of DC and her  2001 album All That Glitters has been compared to work by Regina Belle, Anita Baker and others. Featuring a live backing band on some tracks, the album is mainly a mixture of folksy soul and pop blues with a slight rocky edge but the "If I Only Had One Wish" and the cover of "Make Me Love Somebody Else" are great R&B tracks.
