EP – It’s Good
There’s a restlessness to award-winning, Pacific Northwest songwriter, Toni Land. Ever-searching…and always curious. Toni’s new EP – It’s Good – perfectly captures that restless spirit. It’s the sound-snapshot of an artist constantly moving forward. One who doesn’t do the expected thing. One who is forever thirsting to draw from a deeper creative well. This evolving path has led Toni to this, her sixth release. And no surprise – It’s Good is very good!
Toni plays equal parts mad scientist and weary romantic in the dark and charming, tom-tom drive and electric boot-swamp of “Frankenstein,” the first single from the CD. From the bang and twang of the opening kicker “Ghosts Of Regret” it’s obvious Toni’s moved into new and adventurous territory. Here, emotional battle lines are drawn and Toni dares us to cross them. “Good People” moves us across a soulful and hypnotic groove-wasteland of memories and dreams, while “Greatness” serves as a reminder of the power of an absolutely gorgeous ballad. An emotional highlight. We close the album with the atmospheric and haunting “Tree Song”, which from the downbeat drops us into the breathing and beating heart of an ancient living world.
“Frankenstein” has charted across Adult Contemporary, Country and Top 40 radio formats. Her music has received airplay throughout the US as well as in Europe, Canada, and Russia ever since her first single, “Have You Ever Seen Your Real Love?” from Chocolate Cake for Breakfast which climbed to the Top 40 chart.
“Toni Land-I love her! I’ve been playing her and playing her and then I’ve been playing her some more.” -Mathew Richards, KTIL
