Upon moving to Nashville Toni quickly found her way to working with some of Nashville's great songwriters.  She's a Nashville songwriter who puts a lot of heart and life in her music.  Her vocals often resemble an Allison Krauss feel.  Her songs have been placed with National recording artists and independent artists.  

 

She credits much of her love of songwriting to an early age, but notes that one of her first jobs in Nashville was a tour guide at the Country Music Hall of Fame.  "This was a special place for me,"  said Toni.  "It was really there that I finally understood if you stay true to who you are in this business, there is a fan for every artist and an artist for every fan."  She can be seen playing the Bluebird and other Nashville area hot spots.  She's toured and shared her music with thousands.  Her musical journey has been full of ups and downs, but it's this that she says helps her write deep - meaningful songs.  

 

She was excited getting a song called “Deeper” put on hold for Martina McBride, and felt the heartbreak when it wasn’t cut. But neither that nor anything else could stop Toni from continuing to write and sing heart-felt songs, and hone her unique sound and persona.

 

Her strong faith has always been a firm foundation throughout the ups and downs of the music business and everyday life.  Toni feels a special bond with military families that started when she performed with the band “Laredo” that toured Army bases all over the East Coast.

So with a wondrous new album on its way and a lifetime of preparation leading up to this musical moment, Toni Staples is perfectly positioned to impact country radio, Music Row, and fans everywhere.
