Toni Gibson
had done little other than record a demo and post raw videos of herself singing on Youtube when she was first added to the site in 2010.  She caused a massive stir and shot straight up to our top ten after only one update and still holds the record for the fastest rated artist on the site.  Outside of CCUK, things are looking bright for the young New Zealander who has signed a contract with the same person responsible for the launch of Hayley Westenra and Elizabeth Marvelly in New Zealand.  She has recorded many tracks for her debut album (some can be found on her website and on Youtube), has made appearances on NZ television, had radio airplay, opened sporting events and performed in concerts throughout her home country.  Gibson's popularity can be largely credited to her homemade Youtube videos of her performing unplugged, making her vulnerable to obvious errors and weaknesses, and yet, showing none.  She consistently performs to not only a pitch perfect standard but also demonstrating real emotion with her astounding interpretation skills.  Her dark image and eclectic song selection prove to be challenging to the classical crossover standard which instantly intrigues and attracts new fans. Gibson launched her debut album in 2013 and reached the top ten in the New Zealand album chart - an impressive feat for a CC artist in New Zealand, but doubly so without a major label.

Toni's new album "Echo In My Soul" is truly a magnificent album.

Her vocals are totally amazing.

One of the rare incredible voices of our time.

Just got my CD - wow! wow! wow! Toni has hit it out of the park. Beautifully controlled interpretation as she samples rock, pop, country, folk influences as well as CC standards. Avoiding the excessive ornamentation favored by most talent show contestants these days, she unleashes the full power of her rich vocals at just the right moments, to spine-tingling effect. Great production job as well as the accompaniment follows this less-is-more approach, allowing us to fully enjoy Toni's voice. Number one on my personal playlist!

Her writeup says her biggest market is New Zealand, and it may be right now, but just wait until her CD is available. I think her audience will be shown to be world-wide!

It cannot be denied, the voice that is Toni Gibson's penetrates to the very soul. Crisp and clean with control of soft and large notes, This wonderful young artist needs a platform to showcase. Any help with funding her debut album is for the good of us all.
