"…[Toshi Reagon's] live shows shower retro funk, urban blues and folk on the audience with evangelical fervor. To hear her is to believe her." - The New Yorker

Toshi Reagon is touring in support of her new critically acclaimed album, "Toshi" that is filled with wit, uplifting lyrics and energetic melodies, presented with a fresh new twist from producer Craig Street. Says Dan Aquilante of the New York Post, "'Toshi' is riddled with funk 'n' soul, passion 'n' power. And the songs have not only smart lyrics but also melodies that make your body move." Reagon cites her musical abilities from her family, particularly her mother, Bernice Johnson Reagon, founder of Sweet Honey In The Rock. Both parents belonged to SNCC's (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) Freedom Singers, a folk group that sprung from the Civil Rights movement and toured the country to teach people about civil rights through song. Believing music is the way she deals with her political energy, Toshi once told Curve magazine, "From where you are, from who you are in your everyday life, that's where you make change…whatever your gig is, make change through your strength." Check her out live!
