Oh, The Joy is Aaron Toronto’s Single Out Now

 The song opens with a fresh, groovy rhythm that instantly creates a charming, sun-drenched vibe.

The atmosphere evokes memories of Black’s “Wonderful Life,” a blend of nostalgia seasoned with hope – perfect for cruising around with your car.

But Toronto doesn’t stay stagnant. The chorus takes a sharp turn, infusing the track with a Beatles-esque influence. This unexpected genre mashup creates a unique melody, further enhanced by Toronto’s passionate and theatrical delivery.

His background as an actor and producer shines through in his music. He injects a sense of drama and storytelling into his songs, transforming them into sonic movie soundtracks.

“Oh, The Joy” is a prime example, painting vivid images in the listener’s mind.

This single is just a taste of what Toronto has to offer. The entire Illumination EP shows his creativity, and “Oh, The Joy” is sure to leave you wanting more.

So, buckle up, put the top down (figuratively or literally!), and cruise through this sonic landscape of sunshine and surprises.

The EP was recorded at Plaid Dog Studios in Boston MA.

It is a bit of a story album, though loosely. One can see the stages of a romantic relationship through the six songs on the EP.

“My name is Aaron Toronto or a lot of people call me, “AT.” I’m a musician and songwriter originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan, but I now call the small but mighty town of Brookings, South Dakota home. Yes, that’s right, South Dakota. People live here!
From a young age my parents always told me I had music running in and through me. I thought that was strange because I shied away from it during my childhood. But, as I got older, I realized they were right.

The reason I stayed away from it was because music ran so deeply in me that it was almost frightening. For me, music is the only thing that can touch my deepest emotions and my deepest thoughts. But now, I dive right in and share what’s inside with the world.My musical journey took me from piano lessons to boy choir to baritone to musical theater to guitar to composing and to fronting bands – Fenderhead, Damn Sexy Man and The Bliss. Over the years I’ve written hundreds of songs, including tunes for a musical once. I’m a troubadour at heart; I sing as honestly and passionately as I can. That is my gift to the musical landscape along with my songs.

When I write a song, it can start with anything – a word, a melody, a chord, an idea. Sometimes it’s not even that deep, but somehow that little nugget is a truth for me. And, I run with it. Often, that little nugget pulls at a deeper truth and I have to get it out in the open. A while back the phrase “reaping what I sow” came into my mind. Didn’t really know where it came from or what it meant. Only once the tune was nearly done did I understand what it was about – I was trying find what words and music for expressing how the pain of lost love always lurks just beneath the surface in our unconscious mind, no matter how hard we try to push it away. And, sometimes that pain rears its ugly head and we have to deal with it.

Aside from music, Aaron co-founded Toronto Brothers Entertainment, a movie production company, after performing with Jeff Daniels’ Purple Rose Theatre and acting for a variety of film companies. Notably, he appeared in Jeff Daniels’ indie comedy Super Sucker in which he played one of his oddest roles, an agent of “Americans Against the Sexual Abuse of Home Appliances.” Aaron’s company produced a comedy script he co-wrote entitled, The Pact, (now streaming on Tubi TV), in which he played a lead role and for which he composed much of the music. The Toronto Brother’s second feature, Face 2 Face, streamed on Netflix for two years and is now available on Amazon Prime. He is writing and producing several upcoming projects including, Bowl Off, a comedy, and a one-hour drama entitled, Rezball.”
