“Love Is The Cure-The Essential Collection” is an awesome album. To hear the beautiful, “GOD GIVEN” voice of Susan Toney, gives us an overwhelming joy and it’s an honor to be able to sing with her!” – The McCrary Sisters
“Love Is The Cure” is a unique piece of work. It’s unlike anything else out there. -David Z
Press Release: Los Angeles, CA – Americana artist, Susan Toney, is set to release her latest album, ‘Love is the Cure’ on Strange Child Recordings on March 4, 2014. Produced by GRAMMY winning, multi-platinum David Z (Prince, John Mayall, Jonny Lang, Etta James, Eric Clapton) and mastered by GRAMMY Award-winning Ray Kennedy (Taylor Swift/Shania Twain) and Erick Labson (Sublime/Aerosmith/Boyz II Men/The Who), Toney recorded the album in both her native Los Angeles and in Nashville, TN’s famed, Ocean Way Recording Studios.
Of her release, Toney exclaims, “Love Is The Cure-The Essential Collection’ was inspired by looking at many different kinds of relationships in life and the beauty and complexity of each. If you bring the human experience of joy, intimacy, safety, fear, vulnerability and differences together, with patience and understanding, love is the cure…”
“I’ve endured personal tragedies in my life and God and music have been my saving Grace. Music is a powerful voice and I am blessed to be the instrument to help others (those who may be struggling with their own life hurdles be it abuse, addiction, conflict or heartache). I believe LOVE IS THE CURE speaks to express emotion. Each song was created from life experiences with the hope to help the listener rise from personal trials to triumphs.”
