Twelve Videos of Christmas #8: TONI & THE STONEHEARTS – No Turning Back

Twelve Videos of Christmas #8: TONI & THE STONEHEARTS – No Turning Back

Toni and the Stonehearts hit the ground running with 100% full throttle debut single No Turning Back.

Influences of this generation’s best female rock ‘n’ rollers, Suze De Marchi, Grace Potter and Sarah McLeod shine through and are matched perfectly with frontwoman Toni Bird’s almighty vocals and the track’s epic riffage.

Recorded at Def Wolf Studios which has seen Aussie legends DMA’s, Hockey Dad and Deep Sea Arcade grace its halls, the Sydney studios were the perfect home for Bird’s return to music.

“It was really important to me that we kept that energy. We tracked everything live first, vibing in the same room together and then used that to lay down the parts. I really love the way the old school rock ‘n’ roll tracks translate the same energy that you get on stage into the recording and that’s something I didn’t want to lose when it was our turn.”

Directed by Yure Covich of 75% Old School the 90’s inspired clip has the blonde bombshell taking us through the back streets of Sydney’s iconic Marrickville.

“We had a few key concepts and themes in mind but the one thing we knew was we wanted the clip to truly reflect the song’s message of breaking free, moving forward and mixing it all with heavy dose of good times,” says Bird.

5 years ago, the record was written, the release date was set and everything was coming up roses for the budding young artist. Devastatingly, Toni Bird’s co-writer and mentor suddenly passed away before the record was able to see the light of day. The emotional blow took Bird away from music on a soul searching journey.

“My world crumbled and I just couldn’t bring myself to keep making music without him”. It took an invite to hit the road with blues/rock band ‘Nat Col & the Kings’ and a chance encounter with fierce frontwoman Dallas Frasca to bring Bird back to music.
