Oregon recording artist, Toni Land, Releases New Single “CRAZED AND DAZED” as follow up to #1 Hit Song, “NEW GIRL”

For Immediate Release

Portland, OR – 

Toni Land has been making the very best of these trying times.  In addition to carrying on her profession as a speech pathologist, Toni has been churning out new songs and pushing them to success!   “NEW GIRL”, her cross over single hit No.1 on the Digital Country Charts and No. 2 on Country Western Region Chart. “NEW GIRL l” was also No. 5 on Adult Contemporary’s National Indie and Country’s Radio Hits charts.  Land says, “NEW GIRL is a beautiful beast and has “legs”.  Me and my friends refer to “NEW GIRL” like this, like she’s alive and breathing…which she seems to be!” Land has been described as “sure footed in her travels between country, folk, and rock” and compared to Lucinda Williams, Sheryl Crow, Aimee Mann, Taylor Swift, and Brandi Carlile.  Land, a prolific songwriter, has recently released her next single, “CRAZED AND DAZED”. It immediately popped onto Top 40 and Adult Contemporary charts.

Land has a total of 6 albums available right now…and so when asked what’s next on the horizon, she says, “I’m working on a new album now right through the pandemic by recording remotely with my producer Jim Walker in Portland, Oregon.  First I had to learn how to do that but now I’m fully engaged. We’ve been doing all the tracks ourselves and it’s been crazy fun. 

Also a speech pathologist, Land is dedicated to helping her young speech patients and has devised ways of connecting with them virtually.  “It’s kind of like putting on a TV show with my 2 year olds which is the largest part of my caseload. I have to be very organized and animated to keep their attention.  My parents are key to the work being successful since they help keep the programs moving and effective.” Land likes to use music in her therapy and has learned just how much kids love music.  “Some of my kids learn some of their first words or phrases from songs. Music is inherently communicative and fun and that’s exactly what I need when working with children.”  Land’s own performances have generated funds for Stagelights, a non profit dedicated to music education and enrichment in her own community.

Land was awarded Best Songwriter by the International Acoustic Music Awards as well as the Portland Songwriter Association.  She’s earned publishing and production deals for her songwriting throughout her lauded career.  Her very first single, “HAVE YOU EVER SEEN YOUR REAL LOVE” crashed onto the Top 40 Adult/Contemporary Chart, and earned Land a national distribution deal.  Since then, radio stations the world over have been playing her music.  She was voted one of the “Top Ten Artists” in a poll by Radio 98.6 listeners in Berlin. “ FRANKENSTEIN”, the single from her last CD, IT’S GOOD charted late last year across radio formats including Adult Contemporary, Country and Top 40.
