Valerie Wood
This Chapel Hill-based trio features vocalist Jane Francis. The News & Observer notes that "songbird Wood spins an eclectic array of silky smooth Americana ear candy with world-class jazz musicians: Tru Born on guitar and Jane Francis on upright bass."

Tru, a veteran of the New York jazz scene, studied at the St. Louis Conservatory of Music and at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where, after graduation, he became one of its youngest faculty members ever. In New York, he recorded with Peter Gabriel, Joan Baez, Janis Ian, and Cassandra Wilson, among many others. He earned his Master's Degree in Jazz Studies from NC Central this past May.

Jane, originally from western New York, moved to North Carolina as a teenager. Currently studying jazz education and upright bass at NC Central. she's worked with Mitch Easter, Mike Krause and others in the Chapel Hill area, where she also plays with the Duke Orchestra and the Chapel Hill Philharmona.
