Born in Southern California, Toya began her Musical Journey at age 8. During high school, Toya was a member of the marching band playing clarinet as well as teaching her self to play the flute. Upon graduating from college, her dream of a musical career was put on hold to raise a family. In 1992, the family (consisting of Robert, her husband and three sons Terrance, Taimarius and Robert III) relocated to the Las Vegas, Nevada area. Today with the support of her family, the time is right to follow her dream once again.
Inspired by family and the success of other artist/singers in the Industry, Toya has chosen to further her passion and talent for music.
In 2003, Toya along with her family launched an Indie Label entitled Open-Minded Records. Although this is a New Beginning for Toya and Open-Minded Records, She truly believes that "Now is the Time to Free an Open Mind with creative Songs and Music".
Through perseverance and determination, Toya compiled her debut Album titled "My Songs".
"My Songs" is an independent release, funded, composed, written, produced and recorded by Toya with no major label or corporate assistance.
Toya's goal is to continue spreading Love through music internationally with First-Time Quality. She will use City Functions, Club Appearances, the Internet and CDBABY to further promote and distribute "My Song" and future projects.
It's Universal, Not Narrow, Broad Minded, Progressive, Tolerant, and Liberal. Toya is Open-Minded.
