New Artist of the Month: Dominique Toney

She’s an actress, a comedianne, and a whole lot of other things. But, most importantly, she’s a talented, attractive new singer with a lot to say. Meet Dominique Toney. Musical versatility runs in Dominique’s blood. Her father, keyboardist Kevin Toney, was a founding member of the groundbreaking, oft-sampled funk-jazz fusion outfit, The Blackbyrds. 

We first heard about Dominique a few months ago, and we were hooked. So hooked that we have made Dominique our New Artist of the Month for September. We think you’re going to dig hearing more from this talented singer-songwriter, as she issues her debut album, A Love Like Ours (click here to read our review)

Check out Dominique’s video hello to SoulTrackers:


Dominique’s A Love Like Ours (available now via K-Tone Enterprisesis a loosely thematic song cycle detailing the arc of a relationship – the joy, the pain and the lessons learned. The music moves from the sassily flirtatious opener “Loving You’s So Easy” to the jazzy Latin swing of the title track “A Love Like Ours” (featuring Dominique’s father Kevin Toney, founding keyboardist of 2x Grammy©-nominated group The Blackbyrds) to a powerful heart-tugging ballad entitled “Pieces” (featuring Ray Parker Jr. on acoustic and electric guitars) to the mid-tempo dance pop piece “Blink of An Eye.” There’s also a very hip cover of Carly Simon’s smoldering `70s liberated woman classic “Vengeance” (featuring lead and rhythm guitar by Rob Bacon of “The Arsenio Hall Show” Posse Band) and a brilliant collaboration with Lebrese Black on “Just Don’t Know” which features a rap and a wicked string section line. 

Let’s start with Dominique’s single, “Loving You’s So Easy”…
