Acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi-talented musician Susan Toney’s debut single “The Trail of Light and Dark” from the LOVE IS THE CURE CD on Strange Child Records has been released to Secondary Country radio via CDX. The single was simultaneously released on iTunes in two formats. In the soulfully infectious track, Toney confronts a sadistic- famed photographer and former love interest who has crossed her moral and ethical boundaries, leaving her hurt and dismayed by his actions. Like true country music, “The Trail of Light and Dark” embodies all the components of storytelling as it addresses a range of emotions that listeners can relate to. The potent combination of Toney’s engaging voice infused with a compelling melody, the single is proof that Susan Toney is a force to be reckoned with – a serious contender in songwriting and performance.
“The Trail of Light and Dark” is Toney’s first single from her forthcoming album release of LOVE IS THE CURE produced by Grammy-winning multi-platinum producer David Z (Prince, John Mayall, Etta James, Eric Clapton). Written by Susan Toney, the track features Toney on lead vocals and with her acoustic guitar; Mike Rojas (piano, keyboards); Pat Buchanan (electric guitar); Jack Holder (acoustic, electric guitar); Steve Mackey (bass); Lynn Williams (drums, percussion); and Bekka Bramlett (background vocals).
