Album Notes
DJ Michael Marten loves life and music. While focusing on House, Funk and Disco in his DJ sets, he maintains a soft spot for melancholic songs. Inspired by, as he puts it, "Michael Kingsley’s great composition and Toni's touching voice," the German DJ, blogger and producer added some instruments that give the song a new direction while keeping the original's atmosphere. "This was one of those moments, where everything fell into place easily," Marten recalls about his remixing session. "And I am so happy that Michael Kingsley approved my version, giving me the chance to present my work.“ The "Dance Remix" of "The Heart Is Not Involved“ is now a constant companion when Marten takes to the road to play his DJ sets –- with great reactions from the audience: "The song’s melody and atmosphere seem to easily strike a chord with people." Marten describes these "magical moments" as "one of the reasons I love music.“

TONI  is an international performer who most recently has been singing in clubs in New York City. In keeping with her belief in the truth and essence of things, she tries to stay clear of the world of created complications, which she characterizes as modern "mind dust" . She wants the songs that she sings to reflect  that Survival and Love are the foundations of all that is important.  She hopes that listeners may be cautioned to stop running through life, and instead listen to themselves and trust their own instincts. She is attracted to songs that have somewhat of a retro-flavor, in that they are pure, musical, and poetic, rather than aiming to be "cool" or "hip." According to Toni, she sings songs that go "back to the roots" of what is basic in life and that speak about moments in time and moments of truth, sometimes epiphanies.

When composer / songwriter / arranger / producer / musician Michael Kingsley met Toni, he was struck by the haunting quality of her voice, her poetic sensibility, as well as her fascinating stage presence. One day on her way out of his studio after a rehearsal for another project, she asked what he was playing on the piano. When he told her it was one of his songs, she said that she loved it and that she wanted to work on it.  And so began a road to recording several original songs for release as singles.  Michael was delighted with how intuitively Toni related to his material and how her vocals brought new meaning to familiar work. The unique sound of her voice then inspired him to write new music and lyrics that he hoped would connect to the depth of her artistic spirit.   He notes that her natural instincts get her inside the very center of his songs and that she sings from her heart with true conviction. As he puts it, "her voice has an incredibly expressive timbre that exhibits both strength and fragility and is disturbingly beautiful."

MICHAEL KINGSLEY's life's passion has always been music. He is a full-time independent composer/ arranger / producer/ musician, working at MK Studios in NYC on music projects of others, as well as those of his own creation. He deeply appreciates great music of assorted genres and does not restrict his musical expression or wish to narrowly categorize what is possible in the joy of creation.

Michael's diverse work has been represented in a large variety of venues including film, television, radio, night clubs, concert halls, Broadway, regional theatre, and commercials.
