Who is Toni Love?

I was interviewed and featured by Connected Woman Magazine last year shortly after the release of my poetry EP titled The Restoration. My expectation was different than the outcome. I thought I would be talking more about myself as a writer and possibly my journey and experience producing my first body of work; I ended up exposing my life story and sharing my experience strength and hope to all of the women (and possibly men) in need of restoration!

Connected Woman Magazine was gracious enough to revive last year’s article and you can check it out for yourself. If you want to hear the CD, you can purchase a limited edition, autographed copy for $10 to celebrate the second anniversary of the release!

I hope you take time to rest, reflect and rejuvenate over the holiday weekend and come out of it restored and ready!

Make today great and remember #loveistheanswer!

 

The Restoration CD

"Toni's CD is a lovely and intensely positive affair, taking her highly personal, even intimate poetry and setting it to soulful grooves and atmospheric arrangements. " - Robb McCall

Original Poetry, Original Music – Toni Love CD “The Restoration”

Toni Love Limited Edition CD

Toni Love Limited Edition CD

My baby has finally arrived! I’m so excited to announce that my first ever poetry CD/EP is available for purchase. There are six tracks and one bonus track of my original poetry and original music produced by Robb McCall of RPX Productions. I am currently working on getting the tracks formatted and uploaded to CD Baby so that the EP can be purchased digitally but until then you can email me at: tonitalove2@gmail.com and I will send you a PayPal invoice for $15 which covers the total amount of the CD and postage. I have a limited number of these special edition copies and I will personally autograph it for anyone who orders a physical copy. I am also happy to deliver the CD to you personally if you are in the Philadelphia area. Once again, I couldn’t have done it without the support of my GoFundMe.com contributors, family and friends. I’ve shared some of the comments I’ve received about “The Restoration” below:

Dope!

Loved it and the music enhanced the words. I would like to purchase a copy to share also!

Don’t ever stop doing what you’re doing!

You made me believe in love again!

I need three more copies!

Captivating!

Blown away in the most literal sense of the word!

I am thrilled at the responses but I think you should get your own copy and form your own opinion ๐Ÿ™‚

I truly appreciate your support and thank you in advance for the LOVE!

Come celebrate with me August 24th in Philadelphia! ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ–Š

View this post on Instagram

๐Ÿ’žIf you haven't heard, I published my first poetry book!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’ฅ Its on Amazon.com/author/tonilove and my website bit.ly/tonilovemerch ๐Ÿ’ฅYou can also click the link in my bio to receive an autographed copy ๐Ÿ’ฅ Toni's Roomย is a poetic journey into the most sacred and sensitive parts of me as a black woman, a female activist, writer, lover and mother. Some poems are 20 years old; some were written this year but all of them provide a look into this black woman's journey from innocence to restoration through ecstasy, heartache, grief, loss, activism and self-love. I felt that there is a need especially during these emotionally charged experiences that artists be the vehicle to healing. I seek to honor myself, my ancestors and open the possibility of healing through art by sharing my poetry inย Toni's Room. I hope you find comfort in this space, stay as long as you'd like and invite your friends! Please come out August 24th to celebrate with me if you're near Philly!
