After months in the studio in Spain and working in South Africa on finishing her debut solo album, Toni Rowland makes her mark on the international music scene.
With her album sales covering the globe from Brazil to Australia, South Africa to Norway (plus the US and UK),her unique sound of almost ‘classic rock’/adult contemporary rock music is being heard by her growing fanbase.
Toni’s music has also been playlisted on radio stations around the world, as well as doing many live interviews.
Toni Rowland has been in the music scene in South Africa for many years, performing with her band Mantis. At the beginning of 2007 she finally made the decision to go solo after not being able to settle on a band line up that suited her unique music style.
It was at this time that her management approached the legendary Ken Hensley who immediately agreed to produce and perform on her debut album. The album was recorded, produced and mastered at eSacramento Studios in Alicante,Spain with Kenhand picking the musicians to work on the album.
“It was an absolute honor to work with Ken, he really understood where I wanted to go and helped me finally find the sound I was looking for” says Toni.
The album is a mixture of songs styles, ranging from pop-rock to classic rock, with some haunting lyrics and melodies such as on “9/11 Souls of All the People” and “3010”.
“Indeed, Toni’s music is damn fine, the songs are all excellent and flow with passion” critiques Nicky Baldrian of Fireworks Magazine where Toni was eatured in “Catz n Claws” and released the single off the album “I’ll be here Waiting” to the Fireworks compilation CD.The album title “Unfolding” is symbolic of Toni spreading her wings after leaving the relative security of the bands “nest”.
Toni has just released her new music videofor the song “I’ll Be Here Waiting”,which was filmed in South Africa and Spain.
Toni has recently toured South Africa with Dilana of Rockstar Supernova fame to sell out audiences.
