Toni Land - Bio

Toni LandOut of the Pacific Northwest Portland music scene, Toni Land, award-winning singer/songwriter is described as “surefooted in her travels between country and folk”.  Land has earned comparisons to Sheryl Crow, EmmyLou Harris and Lucinda Williams.  Her fifth CD, “What The Heart Knows”, is the work of a seasoned musician and artist with its lush production and insightful songwriting.  Land takes you on a ride through an emotional landscape through her powerful and intimate style of songwriting. Long term co-writer and producer, Tim Ellis, and Toni Land have created “a unique and timeless record that only happens with years of collaboration between artists”.  Ellis and Land understand the alchemy of creating beautiful music. 

Unwilling to settle, Land is an artist who is on the move into new territory.  She is crossing the bridge into a new land, a new Toni Land.  The path to transformation is not for the weak at heart but required to birth a song like Brand New World, a glimpse at the dark night of the soul reported by spiritual seekers.  Land is an artist that knows this kind of process, can report back about it and yet truly knows the joy of life and it’s celebration as in the raucous Doin’ All I Can Do.  The whole album reveals movement and change from Land’s last CD, “Lucky Cat”.  This Town Don’t Keep It’s People is adventurous and engaging as it turns a single spark into a blazing forest fire demonstrating an artist that is on an adventure and committed to engaging her listeners.  Land does what Land does best….creates simply and heartfully and keeps you coming back for more. 

Land has earned a reputation for her dynamic crowd-wowing live performances.  She has played return engagements at many of the West Coast’s largest festivals, including the California Avocado Festival in Santa Barbara, North by Northwest and Oregon’s Bite of Portland.  Land is a woman who can straddle the intimate, acoustic songster and dynamic full throttle performer like few can do. 

As a stellar songwriter, she has earned publishing and production deals throughout her career.  Her first single, “Have You Ever Seen Your Real Love”, landed on the Top 40 Adult/Contemporary Chart and earned Land a national distribution deal.  From then on, radio stations have played her music all over the world.  She was voted in the “Top Ten Artists” poll by Radio 98.6 listeners in Berlin.  Her song, “Good For Me” made it to the #4 position on on their Triple A Chart.  Land has been awarded Best Songwriter by the International Acoustic Music Awards as well as the Portland Songwriter Association. 

Land is an indie artist with a story.  She is a performance coach and creator of “The Miracle of Performance” and “Stagework” workshops.  She has been a performance consultant to corporations, community theater groups and public schools as well as a licensed Speech Language Pathologist for children with communication disorders.  She currently splits her time between performing and working with young disabled children in California and Oregon.
