Susan Toney, native to Oklahoma, moved west to Los Angeles in the 1990’s. Prolifically writing songs and performing at venues and festivals throughout Southern California, her song
“Just Don’t Mention Love” landed in Miramax’s film, Little City, in 1997.
In 2003, her career and her life were nearly cut short in a hit and run, rollover car accident, throwing her out of the car completely.
Through the grace of her faith, sheer will and determination, and after surgery and rehabilitation, Toney recovered and returned to her music.
When she was recording her debut album, “Strange Child,” Toney was presented with another obstacle, pancreatic cancer. While receiving treatment and subsequently having her pancreas removed, she finished and released her album in 2007 on her own label, Strange Child Records.
In 2014, Susan Toney found recognition when her songs, “The Trail Of Light And Dark” (Top 40, Adult Contemporary) and “Missing Me (Remix)” (Top 30, Adult Contemporary Indicator) made it on the Billboard charts, off of her album “Love Is The Cure.”
Susan’s newest album, “Headed For Love”, will be available on iTunes, Amazon and other digital distributors 06-26-2020. Her single from the album, “Starlight,” hit #1 on National Radio Hits.
