Nowadays, hip-hop and new school R & B flagrantly breeds carbon-copy-here-today-gone-tomorrow artists chartered by formulaic gimmicks, synthesized beats and digitalized studios, but longevity is rarely synonymous with their futures. However, real R&B artist who revolutionize the genre command respect and staying power. Toni Green is a notable soulful maven whose indelible talent has earned her a rightful place among R & B royalty and she is incomparable.

This melodic diva of the Memphis is no stranger to the Southern Soul scene. She has been recording since the early 70's and has released five previous albums each of which have contained several singles that received airplay in key markets.
Toni's musical roots run deep. She was first influenced by her cousin and teacher, Elvitt Hambrick, Jr., along with his Doo-Wop group, The Knights, who sang A Cappella with foot-stomping, soul-stirring harmonies that that set your soul on fire. Toni joined Elvritt and toured with him. They formed a group called The Moods. The group released their first recording in 1970 on the Hi Recording Label, which included the hit single, 'What Have You Done To My Heart.'
Her career continued to blossom from there as she became a backup vocalist for Isaac Hayes. She performed a duet with Dennis Edwards of the Temptations, and opened up for The Doobie Brothers, Rolls Royce, Midnight Star, Millie Jackson, Betty Wright, The Barkays, ConFunkShun, The Manhattans, The O'Jays, and many more. In addition, she has worked in radio in an assortment of positions as well as received many awards for her work in the community raising funds for various organizations.

While living in Louisville, KY, Toni received awards for Best Female Vocalist two consecutive years. You'll recognize her unique sound in commercials for KFC, Chevron, and McDonalds. Toni also wrote the theme song for the City of Louisville.
Undoubtedly, Toni's exemplary and multifaceted career has enriched the music world and inspired intangible lives in song and philanthropy. Amid today's affluent, but often jaded newbie artists, Toni's incessant devotion to R & B and her fans is the good stuff that real artists are made of.
Toni says, "My songs are stories of life put to music. If you've never gone through anything, you don't have a story to tell, but if you've gone through the ups and downs of life, set your words to music, and you'll have hit after hit." This knowledge and understanding has come with experience, and she thanks God for the experience!
