About the “Joke’s On Me” Video:
The video for “Joke’s On Me” was filmed this past May at a farmhouse in Rustico, PEI that didn’t have heat, yet gracefully follows two characters in the midst of a deeply internal struggle. Both played by Toner herself, one of the characters is clearly trapped, while the other is in denial. The former theatre performer was responsible for the concept, choreography, and chaired the one person art department for the shoot. “Our DP also did lights, our production manager also did hair.”
“Joan” was produced by well-known Canadian producers Stuart Cameron (Crash Test Dummies, Matthew Good, Amanda Marshall) and Peter Fusco (Madison Violet, Matthew Good, and Kim Stockwood), who helped Toner craft the album’s sound and overall direction. The project was recorded at Toronto’s Dreamhouse Studios and also at Peter Fusco’s home studio.
