A native of Durham, North Carolina, Anne "Holly" Woods moved from San Francisco to Toronto in the mid 70's after fronting Sass, and then Gambler. She was introduced to Brian Allen in 1977, and with the addition of Scott Kreyer, Nick Costello and Jimmy Fox (all native New Yorkers) and Sheron Alton, "Toronto" was formed...one of the most energetic live hard rock acts on the Ontario circuit.

After a string of Top 40 hits and 660,000 albums sold, Toronto's label closed its doors forcing the band to dissolve in 1985.

Two founder members, Holly Woods and Scott Kreyer, regrouped and went into a studio in Atlanta to record new material. Misfortune again found them when their producer, Sonny Limbo, died before the sessions were complete. It would appear that fate was against them and the music would never see the light of day.

Now, twenty years later, the "lost" masters have now been resurrected and with it, the most powerful performance of Holly Woods' career.

Set to be released in summer 2007, the album "Live It Up!", features eight soulful and hard rocking hits that will satisfy any fans of Holly Woods and Toronto and will again put Holly Woods' back in the forefront of great Canadian rock.
