GOLD MINE = D.Woods

Previously, I had the awesome opportunity to interview D.Woods, former member of the platinum selling girl group Danity Kane. Knowing that the other members are back the together again, you can expect Ms. Woods making some big moves on her own! This singer, dancer, actress is on the rise! She is the boss of her own independent label, has a new single that is booming, and productions in theater in the works. What can D.Woods not do?!
 


Congrats on the new single Gold mine. I love the new video! It gives me a real 90’s vibe, tells us more about the song and video.  
Thank you! I’m glad that came across! When I heard the track from the producer Travis Cherry, the track music sounded very Jodeci. When I wrote the song I wanted the background vocals to have that same feel, that nostalgic feel.  I just remember growing up watching videos, wanting to be in videos. I also remember my mom being like “No you are not wearing that, you are too young!!”  Now I can and it’s coming back in style, yaaasss! I want people to be like when was this shot, 1990 or 1993!? No it’s 2013! (Laughs)

 
So this is a fashion blog, what are some of your favorite brands and trends that are out right now?
 I pretty much wear whatever I like. I have this sexy tomboy look. That’s my thing. I’ll mix a whole lot of stuff, I’m very abstract. I’ll wear some Timbs, with like a dress.

 
Tell us what we can expect from D.Woods that we weren’t able to see from you in Danity Kane?
Everything! (Laughs) Everything, basically you are going to meet D.Woods for the first time.  I'm glad that I was able to show some of what I’m able to do, but I wasn’t able show what I was chosen to do.  

 
Would you ever do Reality T.V. again? If so, would it be an existing reality show or have one of your own.” 
Sure! I hope that anything I’m apart of wouldn’t be a carbon copy of what’s already out.


I usually like to end interviews with people just giving encouragement and what keeps them motivated. I know that this an up and down industry, how do you maintain so motivated?
It is a rollercoaster… I’ve been doing this since I was 3 years old, so I’ve been doing this before I could think of the possibilities of making money. I just love to do this; I just keep putting myself in positions where I can continue to love it. I have to be more conscious of who I’m around and have my counsel to let me know what to expect and how to get the most out of it so I can continue to love what I do. I always know what I want; it is just a matter of finding it. I’m still learning, and I want to continue to learn. You always want to be exposed to something new and be brought to a higher level, just showing the possibilities that you never expected.

 
Speaking to D.Woods made me dig into my ipod to listen to my fav Danity Kane songs!  D.Woods is definitely grinding and making moves with her Gold Mine promotion tour. Catch up on her music with The Grey Area EP and My Favorite Color EP with singles “2 The Bottom” and “Gold Mine”, available on iTunes. I want to wish her luck and congrats on her new projects!  Now check out her new video “Gold Mine”!
