Toney Rocks performs his latest critically acclaimed singles, “Run to the Night” and “Not Gonna Run” as well as other Americana influenced songs from his various albums.
In 2017, The Las Vegas Weekly named Toney Rocks as one of the top 10 Acts to Watch. His sound is an Americana mixture of country, blues and rock with engaging songwriting. Toney Rocks delivers a show rich in diversity featuring his soulful singing supported by acoustic guitars, ukulele and piano. His latest single, “Not Gonna Run”, released independently under his own Wooka Record label has been featured on popular music blogs and radio shows around the world. Kathy Forste, Music Director of KC Cafe Radio said, “Toney Rocks’ voice is cool and sweet, rocking and lyrical. His songs are thoughtful and hummable.”
Prismatic soulgrass is Athena’s distinct blend of classic soul and progressive Americana – a seamless tapestry of bare emotional vocals, compelling rhythms, meaningful lyrics and uncommon turns. A former radio journalist, and holistic healer, Athena’s first professional songwriting credit is on The Infamous Stringdusters’ 2018 Grammy-winning bluegrass album “Laws of Gravity.” In her solo work, her mellow intensity and iridescent, haunting voice let the listener pull back the veils – on emotion, narrative, truths, and possibilities. Her debut EP
“Alchemy of Ashes” was recorded at the iconic Bridge Sound and Stage studios in Cambridge, with Boston Music Award-winning session musicians and producers. “Alchemy” is an artful integration of Athena’s analog roots and her current
enchantments – a thoughtful and heartfelt work infused with warmth, vulnerability, and grace.
