I’m so excited to present Sounds Like Washington Vol. 2 to you.  Ten years ago I compiled the first Sounds Like Washington to keep me company when I lived far away from D.C. and missed listening to the exclusive sounds of this City.  After returning home, I was inspired to create Volume 2.  Like with Volume 1, some of these songs are regularly played on D.C.’s adult contemporary radio stations, others should be.  Please enjoy these soothing sounds that go best with the Washington skyline in the distance — but will make you feel good wherever you are.

Toney Fountaine – I Found The Girl

This song is for real D.C. music lovers.  Singer Toney Fontaine, originally from Landover, Maryland, has only enjoyed minor, local success — but what a voice!  He’s had a few Washington Quiet Storm classics; I Found the Girl is his most popular.  This single was first released in 1988.  I searched for years to find this song and came across it in an old record store in Silver Spring, Maryland.  I Found the Girl will soon be featured on Sounds Like Washington Vol. 2.  Enjoy!
