Prepare to see and hear a lot of the young, beautiful, multi-talented and far-from-ordinary Dominique Toney in the years to come. Her natural gifts and pro-honed skills in every facet of the performing arts have arrived at peak proficiency and are about to take flight on the wings of her debut album, A Love Like Ours, on which she wrote or co-wrote all but one of the 11 songs, sings, scats, plays keyboards, executive produced and handled vocal arrangements. Revealing her heart like an open book via this richly eclectic alternative soul-pop collection, divinely driven Dominique shares her heart-on-sleeve love story like a woman who has been prepping for this close-up all her life. Listeners and future fans are going to be all the better for it.
Dominique Toney’s A Love Like Ours (available August 12) is a loosely thematic song cycle detailing the arc of a relationship – the joy, the pain and the lessons learned. The music moves from the sassily flirtatious opener “Loving You’s So Easy” to the jazzy Latin swing of the title track “A Love Like Ours” (featuring Dominique’s father Kevin Toney, founding keyboardist of 2x Grammy©-nominated group The Blackbyrds) to a powerful heart-tugging ballad entitled “Pieces” (featuring Ray Parker Jr. on acoustic and electric guitars) to the mid-tempo dance pop piece “Blink of An Eye.” There’s also a very hip cover of Carly Simon’s smoldering `70s liberated woman classic “Vengeance” (featuring lead and rhythm guitar by Rob Bacon of “The Arsenio Hall Show” Posse Band) and a brilliant collaboration with Lebrese Black on “Just Don’t Know” which features a rap and a wicked string section line.
