LESLIE WOODS RELEASES FIRST NEW MUSIC IN THREE YEARS
INOV8 Music Group recording artist Leslie Woods is releasing her first new music in three years with the single “Faithful to the End,” which goes for adds today at Christian INSPO/Soft AC and Christian AC-formatted radio stations. The song is also releasing to iTunes on Friday, August 31st and is now available for pre-order.
The song was written by the dynamic songwriting team of Drew Ley, Sean Hill of Uphill Studios, and Ashley Fruhling.
Ley, who was selected Songwriter of the Year at the 13th annual ChristianSongwriting.com competition, has written with numerous notable songwriters, including Micah Tyler, Jennie Riddle, Dustin Smith, Krissy Nordhoff and Matt Armstrong. Among his accomplishments, Ley penned an instrumental piano piece that played regularly on The Weather Channel.
Woods, who first expressed her desire to be a Christian singer at the age of 3, has been compared to the likes of Kari Jobe, Natalie Grant and the music of Hillsong United. A self-professed “extroverted overcomer”, Woods was diagnosed at 14 with epilepsy. Though living with the disease often left the teenager feeling ostracized, the vocalist came to embrace the words of Eleanor Roosevelt, “No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.”
Woods’s first project, “Just Me,” included a bonus DVD and featured the No. 1 song, “Fall Down.” “Fall Down,” which played on more than 250 radio outlets, topped the CRC Weekly, CRC Monthly and CRC Quarterly charts. A YouTube video for Woods’s song “Clueless,” also from “Just Me,” features the singer roller skating at a rink and has garnered approximately 38,000 views.
Woods followed “Just Me” with a six-song EP titled “Resound,” which included worship songs such as “It is Well,” “To God Alone” and “At The Name.”
