Toney Rocks Live at The Rise w/ Mythic Valley
National touring singer-songwriter, Toney Rocks, brings his southwestern desert sound to Salt Lake City.
After two years on the scene, Toney Rocks suddenly left Las Vegas for a round-the-clock commitment to the road. July 25th he brings his southwestern desert vibes to The Rise, in Orem with special guests, local Salt Lake City Neo-folk/indie rock band, Mythic Valley.
"For years I really tried to have the best of two different worlds, and it consistently fell apart. It was just time to decide how I'm going to live my life as a creator", Toney says on his abrupt Las Vegas departure last August. "Simply put... a three-year relationship that drove me to move from the east coast to Vegas ended. The road, my tenacity for the business, and probably my inability to balance that took its toll on a relationship that was built of a faulty foundation to begin with. But I've known for a long time that what society would call a normal life just isn't for me", Rocks continues.
DRIFTING, is the latest album the singer-songwriter has been touring in support of since 2018. It features five songs performed by Rocks on acoustic guitar, ukulele and piano, recorded primarily in Las Vegas at The Tone Factory with producer Vinnie Castaldo. Toney Rocks also has a new music releases on the horizon. In a few weeks he will release a music video from a live recording session called, RED PLANET SESSION, that was performed with his band The Rejects. This session features two songs from the DRIFTING album, "Not Gonna Run" and the titled song "Drifting", as well as a new unreleased song, "Goodbye". This session will be available as an EP as well that will lead into a studio album slated to be recorded this fall and released in 2020.
Back in 2017, The Las Vegas Weekly included Toney Rocks as one of the Top 10 Las Vegas Based Artists to Watch. Outside of music, Toney is soon to launch a podcast aimed at using his travels across the country to show Americans how similar we are at the core, and help take blinders off of social-political sigmas and stereotypes that hold us back from mutual understanding.
