Location: Durban, ZA (South Africa)
Genre: Classic Rock
Key Tracks: I Rise, I'll Be Here Waiting, Friendship
After spending several months recording her new album in Spain, Toni Rowland
shares what she created, and I can attest to the fact that it was clearly worth the time
and resources she invested. A good singer/songwriter, Toni delivers a powerful 10
track album in her latest project, "Unfolding".
The most meaningful song I've heard this year is "I Rise (Pinkdrive Song)" by Toni
because it addresses and provides a message of empowerment to those who struggle
with, have survived, or know someone who has struggled with, survived, or succombed
to breast cancer. We must support this artist because of her ongoing commitment to
the fight against breast cancer.
On "I'll Be Here Waiting", Toni opens the album in a powerful way. In true classic rock
fashion, she sings with a great deal of conviction and openness. The band's
musicianship is well produced and the lyrical content is honest. She tells her love
interest, who has just experienced a rocky relationship, that she'll be there waiting for
him with open arms when he needs her.
Another favorite of mine by Toni is "Friendship" for several reasons: 1) she admits her
own faults in failed friendships, 2) the music is well produced, 3) the song has
substance, and 4) her singing is pretty good.
MUSICAL GOAL: “My ultimate goal for my music is for it to be heard for years to come,
I want my first album to be played with my latest album. I believe that music needs
longevity and meaning, not just a fleeting fancy." – Toni Rowland
