Toby

WA performer Toby is so much more than just “energetic, raw, and feisty.” She is power defined. Her voice has the potential to create a musical revolution. Toby is simply an incredible performer. That’s not just referring to her powerful, sexy, awe-inspiring voice. Nor is it referring to her energetic, rocking, guitar work. Her energy, her spirit, her soul…. wow.

Over the past seven years Toby has performed nearly 1000 shows around the world. Focusing mainly on Australia, Europe and Canada – nothing seems to stop this woman from touring. In the meantime she has released five albums, two live DVDs and several EPs. She is the hardest working musician in Australia!

For an audience, these live shows are a deeply emotional and joyous experience. For Toby, she wears her emotions, thoughts and adventures on her sleeve as clearly as the delighted smile she sports while playing. It’s that chemistry and connection – in between plenty of dancing and jumping from both sides – that makes each performance so strikingly unique and deliciously unpredictable.

Passionate and known for her unwavering commitment to her craft Toby is willing to take the risk and be vulnerable with her thoughts and emotions committed to song.

Perth born TOBY’s newest studio album “SLEEPTALK” is the album was recorded in San Francisco, California and showcases TOBY’s insightful, honest and poignant song writing. It is an invitation to explore her mind and her soul. This critique of the human condition is both personal and broad. It has captured TOBY’s best songs to date – with a full mature sound, and an incredible line up of musicians!

It tells stories across emotions and continents, yet never loses track of its Australian roots, giving it a sense of place and time. But best of all, it is simply full of great songs that people want to hear.

TOBY’s songwriting skills are honed enough to make her radio-friendly, and her voice is naturally soulful, earthy and dynamic enough to appeal to all kinds of music fans. The songs themselves have some seriously infectious hooks and draws in European flavours, some gutsy blues, slow, chilled out reggae and some soulful acoustic ballads.

TOBY has pulled together experiences from travelling the world, performing her music. She has supported the likes of Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Paul Kelly, The John Butler Trio, Brandy, The Indigo Girls, Gomez, Donavon Frankenreiter, Luka Bloom and Pete Murray. TOBY has performed at major festivals worldwide including Summerfest (Milwaukee, USA), Women’s Red Rock Festival (Utah, USA), Kaslo Jazz Fest (Canada), Big Time Out Fest (Canada) and WA Blues and Roots Fest (Australia)

By not deviating from her fiercely independent origins, TOBY keeps her music real and untamed as she criss-crosses the globe connecting with audiences, injecting them with the passion she feels for music and turning each performance into a memorable party.
