MOON DANCER, released July 24, 2020 by Lloyd Tosoff
The wild Mustang has been culled to the point that only a handful roam the ranges of the Saskatchewan prairie in the Bronson Forest Herd . Other herds across North America are facing similar fates and need to be protected from the ruthless threat of humans who do not appreciate their incredible wild beauty. Narrated from the point of view of an indigenous man, Moon Dancer is filled with artful metaphors that frame the refusal of nature to be harnessed by the pressures of human progress. "She leads the herd that tramples down the white man's grain." ~ Lloyd Tosoff, Songwriter

AN OLD GRID ROAD new release on July 17 2020 by Lloyd Tosoff
We can never go back in time and know what the generation of the golden post war age went through and how they lived.
This song is about walking through a portal into bygone days on the Canadian Prairie and returning to a more innocent time when folks honored their neighbors and acted with decency and civility
. Somewhere in our deepest sense of being human we long for such a sense of connection and well being. Take this journey with me down a dusty grid road and feel the lighthearted joy of the simple life on the farm and small town Canada perhaps as it was in the 1950 and 60s.
