Introducing DeWayne Woods & When Singers Meet

All Music Guide - Andree Farias
One glance at the album photography in DeWayne Woods' debut and you'd swear the singer is the next Stevie Wonder, or at least gospel's own Tonéx. And while Woods does sound like Wonder in the knockout, PJ Morton-penned first single, "Let Go," the dark shades, flowing locks, and bohemian garb are pure imaging. Truth is, Introducing DeWayne Woods & When the Singers Meet has more in common with the output of his mentor and label benefactor, Donald Lawrence, than it does with soul music or Tonéx's freak alt-gospel experiments.

Those who buy the album based on that chart-topping single are in for a surprise: the rest of Introducing is straight-up contemporary gospel -- well-produced, yes, but tending towards slowness and a bit out of character for the young artist/performer.
