Byron Woods
Make no mistake--Byron can sang! Sliding ever so smoothly up the scale through his natural voice and landing effortlessly in his falsetto, you would suspect that Woods must be some kinda musical genie. This extended play (EP) CD is just the teaser for his upcoming album scheduled for release in Spring 2000 on Omnibus Records. It includes the infectious "Work of Art," which is causing a sensation in Europe and Asia and heating up sales on Omnibus' Web site, and the beautiful ballad "You Are Here Tonight," just two of six cuts included here. Meanwhile, while you wait, Byron can also be heard as one-fourth of the group Vocalpoynt.

Liz Mandville Greeson_Look At Me
This lady sings the blues but don't mourn for her. You'll want to shout and sing along with Mandville Greeson, a Chicago diva and Earwig Music recording artist. Her 1997 CD Look At Me caused quite a stir and received rave responses with her live audiences around the country. Her latest offering, Ready To Cheat is destined to do the same. (They are both available to sample and purchase through the links provided here.) With a four octave range and a strong, powerful voice delivering songs that she has written and produced, you'll pray that this lady stays blue for years to come!

Liz Mandville Greeson


Yes, he won on Ed McMahon's tv show Star Search. Yes, he starred as The Wiz in a Chicago production of the play of the same name. And yes, he is now known simply as Titus. With a powerful, sandpapery voice somewhat reminiscent of that of David Ruffin of the Temptations, Titus takes us through 15 tracks that he has produced and either written or co-written on his Mastersellers CD Titus Volume I. The ballads are superb, the upbeat tunes too, too danceable and all in all you'll probably give your CD player a good workout with Volume I as you anxiously await Volume II.
