Toner Announces Sophomore LP 'Silk Road,' Shares First Single

TONER was originally formed as a solo bedroom project by Samuelito Cruz in 2014. With interest from a few labels, Cruz was convinced to record a full-length record that came out in Spring of 2015 titled LP, recorded in the backyard shed of his mom's house. As a result of moving from West End (lower east bay) to Oakland, & the falling apart of his former band Happy Diving, Cruz decided to start playing live shows with a full band consisting of hometown friends Maxwell Carver, Sean Glass & Kennan Sommer. The band has maintained the same line-up since 2015 putting out two EPs Passing Glance & Killing Pace. Silk Road is the band's latest effort, their first studio album & sophomore full length consisting of 10 songs in barely over 20 minutes. It was produced & Engineered by David Kelling of Culture Abuse & Mixed/Mastered by Jasper Leach of Tony Molina Band. Silk Road is the defining release of the new sound of TONER as a transition from solo-bedroom pop to a blown out full band effort.
