4.0 out of 5 stars CCM's New Listening Experience December 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Now that Out of Eden has retired and signed off as Gotee Records leading ladies and Jennifer Knapp has disappeared into oblivion, newcomer Ayiesha Woods has stepped in to fill the void of the black CCM, soulful, alterna-pop princess. Although Introducing Ayiesha Woods is her debut on Gotee Records, Woods is no a stranger to the music industry. In 2004, she became the first female to walk away with the "Producer of the Year" award from the Caribbean Gospel Music Marlin Awards. That year she also received the Marlin Awards' "New Artist of the Year" and "Contemporary Vocal Performance of the Year (Female)". Production credits include the likes of Chris Stevens (noted for his work with Toby Mac, Shawn McDonald, Paul Wright) Otto Price (noted for his work with Barlow Girl, Out of Eden, Grits), Ric Robbins (Grits, Out of Eden) and David Mullen (noted for his work with wife Nicole C. Mullen).

Woods's geographic history is as diverse as her music style. She was born in Long Island, New York but spent much of her childhood in Bermuda. She has also lived in many different locales, including Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, and Texas.

It's nice to see a sistah step outside the box and sing something other than gospel proper with over-the-top runs, riffs, and vibratos. Woods has a smooth, yet gritty voice reminiscent of India.Arie and Amy Grant mixed together. I like the "organic" angle of this effort from the acoustic guitar to the rocking electric. Woods's husky alto emotes simplicity; she doesn't push the soprano, but stays in her rich and textured range. Opener "Happy" has a John Mellancamp vibe (think "Hurts So Good") and songs like "The Remedy," "Big Enough," and "Get To You" convey the need for believers to recognize God's sovereignty and our inability to ultimately control our lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, eclectic new Gotee artist July 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Growing up in Bermuda, Ayiesha Woods never dreamed of being discovered by TobyMac. After hearing her song "Crazy" on the radio while he was vacationing in Jamaica, Toby quickly found her contact information and called her. 27-year-old Ayiesha says, "I wasn't home when he first called. I was in disbelief; I couldn't believe it was him!" Although caught off-guard by the prospect of working with Toby, she knew this was the exact direction God was calling her: to bring her own brand of diversity, quality and purpose into music.

Introducing... has way more heft and depth than your average debut album. The cuts are anything but repetitive, and you can feel the unique urban sound in her music. Upon each progressive track, Ayiesha transcends a broad spectrum of musical styles, making it tough to find a central theme, unless the theme is skillful versatility. For example, she reminds me a little of Nicole C. Mullen in "Crazy," an upbeat, Caribbean hip-hop number. "I Don't Mind," which was written as an encouragement to her mom to let her know God cares for her, has an Aretha Franklin flavor to it. Beyonce Knowles might even come to mind in a few songs.

Ayiesha wrote "The Only One" for a wedding where she was the surprise guest. The bride loved her music, and her performance of this song was a gift from the groom. She was more than happy to be asked, and she can't wait for the newlyweds to hear it on this album. Tobymac's signature vocals back up "Big Enough," a song that reminds us how great God is. And then there is Ayiesha's first radio single "Happy" which is hitting the airwaves and taking off across the country. This song has a catchy pop/country sound, with a little of the vocal chops of Melissa Etheridge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome May 23, 2007

I heard "Remedy" once on the radio and went right to I-tunes and listened to more of her album. I love her voice, music and style. I'm sold.

We purchased this CD based on another Amazon.com customer review. We like a variety in praise and worship music and listen to a broad range of artists including, Fred Hammond, Israel & New Breed, Joanne Risario through to Phillips-Craig & Dean,Cindy Morgan along with Messianic Hebrew praise and worship and found Ayiesha Woods to fit wonderfully into our collection. Some consider her to be the Indie Arie of this type of praise genre based on her ability to show versatility in her variant musical and lyrical styles of music. Her sometimes raspy edge compliments her ability to sing along side Toby Mac on the favored titled song, "Big Enough" and to also tackle a song utilizing the rythmic island sounds of her Jamaican origin flavor to the also favored, "Crazy". This CD has a little 'somethin - somethin' for every listener. Our personal favorite is "Crazy", first because of its to the point message and second because of its bold sound and statement to keep The Word of Our Heavenly Father and apply It literally as His Set Apart Spirit intended, even if they think you're CRAZY. We recommend this CD for both the adult and teenage audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised January 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I ordered this CD because my daughters and their friends and I were attending an "Aquire The Fire" youth event and since the style of music at the event wasn't even close to our usual genre', I decided to familiarize the girls with at least one artist. I admit, it took a while (a week or two) for me to decide, (we are a family of musicians and vocalists with sophisticated tastes in music) but after listening we all came to enjoy Ayiesha's style. She's very diverse, so there was something for everyone. Her lyrics are appropriate for her participation in the youth event. Her message is plain, live for God and make him the center of your life. It was a shame that we didn't get to see more of her live performance. (she only performed 3 songs) She's as good live as she is recorded. It's obvious she is anointed and she that she wanted this CD to be a representation of God's love, giving him all of the glory.

I say, "Go for it and enjoy the diversity of song styles as well as the wonderful lyrics."
