American jazz singer, actress, psychotherapist and Intersex rights activist, the daughter of composer Hubbard Atwood and the granddaughter of the novelist A. B. Guthrie Jr.

Her mother's father was novelist A. B. Guthrie Jr. Her father, Hubbard Atwood, was a composer and arranger who wrote the songs "Tell Me About Yourself" for Nat King Cole, "I Was the Last One to Know" for Stan Kenton, and "No One Ever Tells You" for Frank Sinatra.

In 1992, Atwood had recurring roles on the soap opera Loving and the crime drama The Commish. At the same time, she began singing in clubs in New York City. Marian McPartland, a pianist and radio host, heard a copy of Atwood's debut album, Today! (1992), which was independently produced during the previous year. McPartland sent a copy to Concord Records, which then made Atwood one of the youngest musicians to sign a contract with Concord. The debut album was reissued under the name No One Ever Tells You.

As of 2022 she is a psychotherapist who conducts psychodynamic and relational therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and narrative therapy.

Atwood was born with Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (AIS), an intersex trait occurring in approximately 1 in 20,000 people. In a person with complete AIS, the body's cells are unable to respond to androgens, male hormones. She discussed AIS for the first time publicly with Bill Kohlhaase in the liner notes for her 2002 album, Waves: The Bossa Nova Session. In 2008, she was featured on ABC's Primetime Live.

Atwood is a co-founder of The Interface Project, a project that shares stories of people born with intersex conditions.
