Expectation vs Reality Project

CBC.CA- Why P.E.I. musician Alicia Toner is sharing her personal mental-health struggles



A child of the East Coast, Alicia Toner writes songs that tell the truth. Her americana blend of folk, pop and country-rock offers a unique melody-driven sound built around her eloquently emotive voice.

Alicia’s debut album “I Learned the Hard Way” made waves with it’s earnest, heartfelt songwriting and earned her Music PEI’s SOCAN Songwriter of the Year Award as well as numerous other nominations and critical acclaim.

Growing up in New Brunswick, Toner was surrounded by music, and was classically trained on the violin, including a number of years spent with the prestigious New Brunswick Youth Orchestra, where she had a chance to play Carnegie Hall. She continued her theatre studies in Toronto and soon became cast in musical stage shows, including shows produced by Mirvish Productions and Soulpepper Theatre. Three Toronto productions Toner has been involved in have won Dora Awards (Canadian equivalent of a Tony Award). For the past six seasons, she has been an integral part of the repertory cast at the Charlottetown Festival.

I Learned The Hard Way, is a pretty apt description of the tone of the album and sorts of material Toner deals with, especially in her self-penned compositions. While it is not a break-up album, it is an album about relationships – the good, the bad and the ugly.

Produced by Tim Chaisson (The East Pointers) and Stuart Cameron (The Heartbroken), her new single “Dangerous Home” delves deeper into the well of truth. Both epic and personal, it signifies an exciting new direction for a truly remarkable artist with a unique ability to convey common stories and emotions to which we can all relate.

Dangerous Home is available now.
