I'm the Girl I Used to Know Again

by Dwayna Litz

This latest CD from Dwayna Litz “I’m the Girl I Used to Know Again” is refreshing. It has original songs reminiscent of the country/rock/bluegrass LA-Sound-of-the-70s with songs written similar to the style of early Linda Ronstadt but with a contemporary surprise like Norah Jones. Recorded in the top studios of NYC and Nashville, Dwayna has a sound all her own. There are elements of pop, country, R&B and bluegrass in this soulful compilation recorded with the best of musicians and background vocalists in the music industry. Dwayna co-wrote with Sam Lorber (“Cry like a Baby”), Hubert Eaves III (“Yes I Would”) and Jeff Franzel (“All Because Of You”) on this CD. Tony Guerrero is also featured playing trumpet on one of the songs. It ends with a funky, bluegrass rendition of “This Train is Bound for Glory” recorded with Scott Coney, Randy Kohrs and Tim Crouch in Nashville.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The first time I met Dwayna I knew without question she was bound for success. She has a passion and a joy for life and her music. Being a former A&R executive, it’s one of the most important qualities we look for in an artist. She has all of that and more. Dwayna can deliver songs in all styles, whether it be Jazz, big band, bluegrass or contemporary country. Dwayna’s music will be a beautiful blessing to you.” --Larry Shell, songwriter and former A&R director at Polydor Records, A&M Records and Broken Bow Records (Discography includes co-writing "Murder on Music Row," which was CMA Song of the Year recorded by George Strait and Alan Jackson).

“What an artist to collaborate with! Dwayna has an earthy, authentic and soulful country voice that is unmistakably hers. And her beauty of musical Spirit matches her physical beauty as well. Believe me, that helps in today’s market. I was so happy and proud to hear the finished product of Dwayna’s production of our song ‘Yes I Would.’ As I continue to listen to the whole album ‘I’m the Girl I Used to Know Again,’ I am so impressed. She has great songs and has chosen great musicians, singers and studios to make for a CD of great performances. I believe this album is a classic, and I’m so proud to be her friend and co-writer.” --Hubert Eaves III, musician, producer, writer, arranger for such artists as Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston, Madonna, D Train, Aretha Franklin, Biggie Smalls, Miles Davis, most notably

“There are lots of singers and lots of songwriters out there, but there are very few who come straight from the heart. Dwayna Litz is one of those singer/songwriters. Her joy and sincerity are palpable in her music, and her connection to the lyric is always heartfelt and authentic. This isn’t music for music’s sake, but music from the heart of a very talented woman. The industry needs more Dwaynas!” - Tony Guerrero, Jazz trumpeter, songwriter, producer (Discography including Freddie Hubbard, Tom Scott, Brian Wilson, Billy Idol, Slash, Phil Keaggy and David Pack)

"Dwayna has always been a star. Her voice is so warm and expressive that you feel like you have found a dear friend as soon as you hear her sing. Her new collection is intimate and cozy, confessional and honest. Refreshingly free of over produced bombast and wonderfully easy on the ears. Dwayna and her timeless music are excellent company. Experience her delightful musical presence for yourself..." --Vip Vipperman, songwriter BMI Billionaire Award for writing “1982” recorded by Randy Travis, ASCAP award for “1982” by Randy Travis, Nominated for CMA Song of the Year; Grammy Award for Best Country Album “The Cold, Hard Truth” by George Jones for his third single “Sinners and Saints” (Discography also includes cuts with Reba McEntire, LeAnne Rimes and Trace Adkins)
